Hi, I just did clean reinstall using Clover and everything works great.
I have only problem with touchpad 3 fingers gestures. I know that I have to set shortcuts in settings, but I don't remember what keystrokes these gestures emulate. Could anyone tell me or where I can find it?

Thanks.

Just use the gesture when assigning shortcut.

Hi,

I have dual boot Mavericks and Windows 7. I'd like to add Ubuntu to it. What's the best way to do it? Create partition using disk utility and then reformat it like when installing Windows? Will it rewrite clover, so I'll have to fix it again?

Thanks.

I have done it on my Lenovo U430. Ran into an issue... but may be Lenovo specific. In particular, the Lenovo BIOS would then boot directly to EFI/ubuntu/grubx64.efi instead of Clover in /EFI/boot/BOOTX64.efi. Had to move all *.efi from EFI/ubuntu into EFI/ubuntu/bin (created new 'bin' subdir). Then I used a custom entry in Clover to point to EFI/ubuntu/bin/grubx64.efi...

I'll try it eventually on my 4540s.

I have successfully installed Xubuntu 14.04. No need to mess up with EFI, works automatically. But when I select in clover to boot xubuntu, grub2 will show up and I need to select it again. How to get rid of it?

I've edited /etc/default/grub - uncomment the GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 and set GRUB_TIMEOUT=0.
Then sudo update-grub. But it didn't work.

Is config file located somewhere else in uefi installation?

Thanks again.

Is grub showing up instead of Clover when you boot?
