2017 macbook pro Trackpad is not working in Ubuntu 20.p4

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello and thank you in advance

I am currently attempting to run Ubuntu 20.04 on my 2017 macbook pro(13 inch with no touch bar ). I have mac os Catalina and windows 10 also installed. The trackpad works fine in both Mac os and windows. Keyboard works fine in all 3 of the operating systems. The trackpad worked when I was in the installer but after it finished and I booted up the curser would not move. Works fine with a USB mouse. The trackpad did work once when I booted through recovery but after the first time it refused to work. Please advise and thank you again

If I am not wrong the 2016-2017 Mac Books have this issue due to the T2 chip. There is a work around you can use  found here. This may help in your case but I have not tested personally.
