    Re: ubuntu on new retina macbook : any experience ?

    I think nvidia-current (295.xx) doesn't work. I investigate.
    If it has to be Nvidia, try the xedgers PPA -- the first nvidia version I tried has been 3xx.xx. (but I don't actually know if it shouldn't work already with 295.xx)

    For old nvidia driver you probably need :

    Option "UseDPLib" "off"

    in xorg.conf in nvidia device section

    Code:
    Section "Device"
        Identifier     "Device0"
        Driver         "nvidia"
        VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
        Option         "UseDPLib" "off"
    EndSection

    Question Re: ubuntu on new retina macbook : any experience ?

    Could anyone tell me how to make the Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter work?
    I googled for it, but I can't find a tutorial or something... I don't even know whether it is supported by linux.

    Boot up with it plugged in; it should just work. Thunderbolt hotplug doesn't work yet.

    Re: ubuntu on new retina macbook : any experience ?

    Has anyone managed to get Bumblebee to work with the NVidia 304.43 drivers?

    I keep getting 'Could not load GPU driver' or 'Unknown Chipset Nev7' errors.

    It's probably just me (n00b and all), but I'd really like this to work in order to use the NVidia to watch movies (should require less power than the i915).

    (PS: with 3.6.0-rc6 bluetooth works just fine.)

    For the fonts, have a look at System Settings -> Application Appearance -> Fonts -> Force DPI; Set to 115 works for me, with Font sizes 9 and 8 throughout.

    I don't use Firefox, but check Chromium -> settings -> show advanced settings -> Web Content, and try Font Size Medium, and Page Zoom 125%.

    Re: ubuntu on new retina macbook : any experience ?

    Hey guys,

    did one of you erase OSX completely?

    I did so, in order to get a dualboot with Win8 and Ubuntu, but without any success, at least so far.
    The Win8 installer fails to install on EFI mode, but works on Bios.
    For Ubuntu, the opposite holds. No success in bios, just in EFI (using noapic and nomodeset).
    But then Grub doesn't start. (Missing operating System)

    Is this a common experience, or does it just hold for me?

    Edit:
    I re installed OSX now... so its fine for now.
    But if you know what my problem is/was, please let me know since I would really like to get rid of OSX....


    Thanks!

    Re: ubuntu on new retina macbook : any experience ?

    For some grounding in what works (dual/triple boots), and what doesn't (Win on EFI), using EFI on Mac's, have a look at Rod Smith's material, as well as rEFInd's documentation.

    Remove OS X completely, retaining rEFInd as Boot Manager:
    After re-partitioning so that a clean OS X landed at the end of the disk, I ran a fairly standard installation, though paying special attention to EFI Issues. Pay particular attention to Rod's section on 'Fixing the Installation' and using the Super GRUB 2 Disk.

    Once I had the graphics card working the way I wanted, and rEFInd was installed from Linux onto the EFI partition, OS X was culled.

    At this point, rEFInd started to act up a little, i.e. trying to boot would take ~30 sec before rEFInd's menu came up. To correct this, I removed all superfluous bootmanager entries, and re-installed rEFInd ... use at your own risk ...

    1) mount the ESP (adjust sdaX to your installation)
    sudo mount /dev/sdaX /boot/efi

    2) get a list of all known bootmanager entries
    sudo efibootmgr

    3) Using the reported BootXXXX id's, remove ALL entries EXCEPT rEFInd's (probably Boot0000) one at a time, e.g. ...
    sudo efibootmgr -b 0081 -B

    4) when only rEFInd's entry is left, i.e. all others are gone, including any 'un-named' ones, re-install rEFInd AGAIN, using the install script ...
    sudo ./install.sh

    ... no more start-up delays.

    Finally, my home partition was extended to gobble up the extra 12G.

    (If you want to remove an OS X at the beginning of the disk, you'll probably have to boot from an external drive/live USB stick and use gparted to shift/enlarge your other partitions so as to utilize the freed up space.)

    NB: Just make sure you still have a working OS X, as well as the installer, somewhere, e.g. on a bootable USB-stick/external drive, in case you need to lock the graphics card into integrated only, or in case you might want to sell your rMBP at some point with OS X installed.
