    Angry Trackpad does not work when installing on Macbook Pro 2018

    Hi all,

    I am trying to install TUMBLEWEED on my Macbook Pro 2018 by dual booting it. I get to the install part and I can't move my mouse at all and all of the keys are unresponsive. Is this normal? How do I fix this? I really want to get Linux installed on my computer.

    Welcome to openSUSE Forums. I'm not a MacBook user, but a quick search online quickly turned up similar accounts for those trying to run Linux on recent models. I did find this github page regarding building out-of-tree drivers for 2016/2017 models. Not sure if this would be applicable to the 2018 model though.

    Good luck with this. YMMV.
