  • I don't know about MacBooks, but my MacBook Pro's iSight works just fine if I load the right driver. See this thread on how to get it to work with Ubuntu: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=225621 [ubuntuforums.org].

    Seeing one CPU is most likely a result of using the wrong kernel. Look for an SMP version of the kernel to take advantage of the second core (the default Ubuntu Kernel works just fine for me).

    You may want to look into the options on syndaemon, it can disable the touchpad while you are typing: https://help. [ubuntu.com]

      The latest version of the MabBook Pro has no problem with the video camera. But under the latest MacbBook it doesn't work.

      Seeing one CPU is most likely a result of using the wrong kernel.

      The missing CPU is not related to the kernel type. It's a well known kernel bug which causes the MacBook not to boot.

      As surprising as it might seem the latest MacBookPro works better under Linux than the latest MacBook. A colleague has the new MabBoookPro and installing Ubuntu there was quite easy, when I tried to install the same OS in the MacBook I was set for a nice ride!

      Definitely!
