The MacBook in a unibody 2010 with intel audio drivers
I had no problem installing Ubuntu or Kubuntu ( which I prefer ) on it
Only thing was that the NVIDIA 350M driver was not used, Ubuntu used the nouveaux xorg driver which works very well but I couldn’t get Blender 3d to accept it and run the latest blender 2.8
I updated quite easily via the additional drivers menu but every time I ended up with a black screen on start up.
Spent about a week and many reinstalls before finding one kind person that made me change a few lines in one or two files and all worked again, I also needed to hunt the internet to get my brightness keys to work and now all is fuctioning correctly.
Only problem is that the Nvidia card isn’t such a good card to run blender correctly so that’s the reason I’m truing on my iMac high end,
For the sound I’ve given up and am now using the Bluetooth headphones,
I now must get blender to accept the ATI card as an OpenGL card to use eevee correctly
The keyboard doesn’t use the function keys too
Another headache in perspective,
Linux is great but really not very user friendly as soon as you want to do something different,
