    Default MBP 15 mid 2015 ( Mackbook Pro ) any issues with Opensuse?

    Hi Community. Like the title says I have a Mac book and I’m looking to switch surely but slowly to Linux 100%. Now that being said I had installed one time Linux Mint and it was making my fans super loud computer was heating up, my front facing camera was not working and also the battery was getting drained a lot. However on a PC (dell brand ) I had no issues whatsoever .

    Wanted to know if anyone in the community has used openSUSE Tumbleweed/ Leap on a mac book and if so what are your thoughts.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum
    For the camera (I have an old 2007 MacBook) I had to extract the camera firmware (install isight-firmware-tools) from the osX driver, for the fan control I use mbpfan available from my home repository;
    Project: https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...General/mbpfan
    Download: https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...leweed/x86_64/

    Code:
    zypper in https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/malcolmlewis:/openSUSE_General/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/x86_64/mbpfan-2.2.1-1.10.x86_64.rpm
