Hello,

I recently installed the latest version of Ubuntu on a spare hdd and configured Clover for multi-booting. This works as expected and to satisfaction.

The only issue I have is with pairing my third generation Apple wireless keyboard and my first gen wireless trackpad under Ubuntu.

I can manage to pair them, but when I do, I can no longer use the devices in macOS or Windows. Further, I can't even get these other OSes to connect with the peripherals unless I go back into Ubuntu and unpair them.

Anyone got this working? I often move between Windows and macOS without issues and I'd like to have the same behavior in Linux.

p.s. I'm using the OSXWIFI hackintosh wireless and Bluetooth card.
