[Bug 1239074] Re: [MacBookAir5, 2] mini DP-to-VGA adapter not recognized


I'm now running 
Linux wendt-MacBookAir 3.11.5-031105-generic #201310132235 SMP Mon Oct 14 02:35:52 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
and that handles the adapter as expected - no appearant bugs with kernel  3.11.5-031105.

  [MacBookAir5,2] mini DP-to-VGA adapter not recognized

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  This is a regression from 12.10 where this adapter worked without any
  problems. The effect of this bug is that you can't use MacBookAir
  machines and use any display device with VGA. (Bad publicity to have
  to boot into Mac OS X to show a presentation about how good Ubuntu is,
  and why you'd want to switch ...)

  This bug is as similar to Bug #1222734 - the difference (as far as I
  can tell) is the MacBookAir version (5,1 - 5,2).
