I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my MacBook Pro 9,1 Mid 2012 non retina 15 inch. I installed the 4 drivers from this link https://launchpad.net/~mactel-support/+archive/ppa?field.series_filter=precise (https://launchpad.net/%7Emactel-support/+archive/ppa?field.series_filter=precise) but still I can't get wireless or bluetooth to work. Even adaptive brightness I think isn't working. Can anyone suggest where to get the complete set of drivers?
P.s. Additional drivers says no proprietary devices found which is weird.

I don't know about bluetooth but if you run the following commands your wifi should work:

wget http://www.lwfinger.com/b43-firmware/broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz2
tar xf broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz2
sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter
sudo b43-fwcutter -w "/lib/firmware" broadcom-wl-5.100.138/linux/wl_apsta.o

They are from this post which fixed the wifi on my 9,1 MBP:

Basically the problem is you are missing the firmware for your card, I am guessing since you didn't post any error messages or logs.
