Macbook 12 inch 2015 keyboard and touchpad driver

Post#1 by gezer33 » 30 Sep 2015, 11:13

I am using porteus 64 bit xfce desktop. I bought Macbook 12 inch 2015. Porteus boots but keyboard and touchpas won't work. When I plug usb mouse and keyboard, they work perfectly. I tried lubuntu, ubuntu, Arch Linux, Mint distributions but same problem. I had search if anybody succeed to make the them work but no luck.

Finally I found this link: http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel ... 29068b7efd
Linus Torvalds says "The main change is support for keyboards and touchpads found in 2015 editions of Macbooks"

But I don't know how to apply or add the drivers on the link to porteus.
Can anyone or porteus admin(s) can do it so we can use porteus on the newest Macbook?

Thanks in advanced.

I would like to avoid out of the kernel tree patches as they are pain to maintain.
If support for your hardware is mainlined then it will be in next Porteus release.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
