    imac 27 late 2012

    HI,

    Any help that you guys can point out I have been trying to install ubuntu on my new iMAC 27inc late 2012 and I was successful on installing the ubuntu 12 but it has no internet connection and has contstant crashes even when just opening a new browser

    Tried installing the ubuntu 13 version and that failed on installation as well..

    Do I have to use a different version of UBUNTU to have it working? I tried searching for help but got nothing..

    After the initial install, what exactly is crashing? Are you getting screen artifacts and glitchy video?

    I'd recommend you install the Nvidia proprietary drivers. You can do it via terminal: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current.

    Your brightness settings might be messed up but try that first and see if it fixes the issue. We can tackle brightness after.

    It would be useful if you could post a little more. There is very little information about installing linux on a modern Mac. I considered buying one, but for lack of information, I wouldn't do it. So, what is your configuration (do you have a fusion drive for example) and what works and what doesn't?
