Ubuntu 16.04 Macbook Pro Download

Ubuntu 20.04 just released and I can’t wait to try it out and install on my MacBook Pro 14.1 model. I am going to tell you what works and what doesn’t work, as well as any workaround to fix those issues.

The install steps are simple:

Yes, installing Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS on a MacBook Pro (2006) works out of the box. I have not been able to make the computer boot from USB-stick, but if you have a burnable CD or DVD available you can easily get it done. If you have a burnable CD available with room for.

  1. Download a copy of ubuntu 20.04 iso image;https://ubuntu.com/download/desktop
  2. Get a USB drive. Format it to FAT format via mac os disk utility tools
  3. Using Etcher to create bootable USB drive. You can download the software here: https://www.balena.io/etcher/
  4. After you fresh the drive with the iso image, reboot your Mac and pressing Option key to select boot from a USB drive.
  1. CD images for Ubuntu 16.04.7 LTS (Xenial Xerus) Server install image. The server install image allows you to install Ubuntu permanently on a computer for use as a server.
  2. CD images for Lubuntu 16.04.6 LTS (Xenial Xerus) 64-bit PC (AMD64) desktop image. Choose this if you have a computer based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2).
  3. So you wanna transform Ubuntu 16.04 desktop to Apple’s MacOS X operating system. Well, I got you covered. Macbuntu Transformation Pack is available for Ubuntu 16.04 and I will guide you to set it up easily. The Macbuntu Transformation Pack contains themes for GTK, meaning there is support for Unity, Gnome, Cinnamon, Xfce, and MATE desktop.
  4. Dual Boot Mac OSX Sierra with Ubuntu 16.04 I am trying to dual boot Mac OSX Sierra 10.12.3 with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on my MacBook Pro(Retina, mid 2014) and I was trying to see if anyone knows how to do it or have any resources I can use to do it by myself.

Once you start to boot up from USB drive, you would notice something doesn’t work already: the track-pad. It doesn’t respond, but never mind, we can either use an external mouse or continue the installation via keyboard. (And we can fix the driver issue later as per the steps below). Follow the instructions and you may boot to ubuntu operating system now. One thing I like for this version is the boot screen is black install purple in the previous version.

Out of the box, here are what’s working:

  • Keyboard with backlight
  • Screen display and graphic card
  • Wifi to connect internet
  • USB ports
  • Battery

What doesn’t work out of the box:

  • Speaker (a workaround to use external headphone, or HDMI at an external monitor, or fix with this: https://github.com/leifliddy/snd_hda_macbookpro
  • Trackpad (a workaround to use an external mouse, or install the driver here:https://github.com/roadrunner2/macbook12-spi-driver
  • Bluetooth (it can be fixed by installing driver:https://github.com/leifliddy/macbook12-bluetooth-driver Note that if you hit error 404 to download 5.4.0 version, edit the script to 5.4.1 instead would work.)
  • Camera (It can be fix by install driver: https://github.com/patjak/bcwc_pcie/wiki/Get-Started In case you hit an error:

make -C /lib/modules/5.4.0-26-generic/build M=/home/Workspace/bcwc_pcie modules_installmake[1]: Entering directory ‘/usr/src/linux-headers-5.4.0-26-generic’INSTALL /home/Workspace/bcwc_pcie/facetimehd.koAt main.c:160:

Skipping depmod.make[1]: Leaving directory ‘/usr/src/linux-headers-5.4.0-26-generic’

You could get rid of that error by not using modules_install in your Makefile.

Other customization I like after installation are:

  • Switch to dark mode.
  • Show battery percentage:

$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface show-battery-percentage true

  • Install gnome tweak
  • Install ubuntu restricted extras:
  • Install atom editor

$wget -qO - https://packagecloud.io/AtomEditor/atom/gpgkey sudo apt-key add -$sudo sh -c ‘echo “deb [arch=amd64] https://packagecloud.io/AtomEditor/atom/any/ any main” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/atom.list’$sudo apt-get update$sudo apt-get install atom

  • Disable trackpad while typing

So now everything works. And you have a secure and high performance operating system. It’s painful but fun with Linux since it’s open-source and allow you to do all kinds of customization. You can create all the bugs and crash your operating system if you don’t know what you are doing, not just frustrating but also rewarding experience to learn something new through troubleshooting the issues. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to get in touch.
