    Re: MacBookAir4,1 & MacBookAir4,2 (MBA 2011) support

    Well thanks, I understand what you are getting at but I cannot find any files on my computer that are i915_something they are all i915.ko also I cannot find the directory they are supposed to go into.

    Is there any way to run the script and force it to use new modules?

    edit; also I have no sound and I dont have all those trackpad options people are talking about, my mouse and trackpad settings are limited to mouse settings only. I cant two finger click but I can 3 finger move windows.

    Sorry my bad, i915.ko is the correct name.

    What's the output you get from running find from your modules dir?

    Code:
    cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`
    find . -name i915.ko

    Sorry to hear that, it's what fixed my problems.

    Do you get any errors or other oddities when running the fix script manually?

    From the wiki (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookAir4-2):
    Code:
    wget -Nq http://www.almostsure.com/mba42/fix-i915.sh
    bash fix-i915.sh

    I've run that more than once now but I did it again. I chose Y to install the drivers from
    Code:
    ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
    and it seems to complete without any issues. Reboot and bam nothings changed again. Really odd, I still leave "nomodeset" in my boot grub right?

    Also sound works had to unmute surround in alsamixer and raise the volume. Odd but whatever one less thing to deal with.

    It seems to work best to not use xorg-edgers, see previous posts in the thread.

    And if you have applied the patch you should NOT keep "nomodeset" in grub. It is only needed to get a usable screen without the patch.

    The problem with xorg-edgers was more about unity not starting but the resolution did work correctly. Still I'm having other problems with the standard drivers so I'm about to try going back to xorg-edgers.

    "nomodeset" removed that and bang works perfect, I had tried with and without that before so I would assume either re patching or moving the i915.ko file fixed it.

    Silly me. Thanks so much for your help!
