Keyboard/Touchpad Not Working Parrot On MacbookPro

How to fix keyboard and touchpad nort working after installing parrot os on macbook pro

This is about documenting getting Parrot OS running on the late 2016 and mid 2017 MPB’s; the focus is mostly on the MacBookPro13,3 and MacBookPro14,3 (15inch models), but I try to make it relevant and provide information for MacBookPro13,1, MacBookPro13,2, MacBookPro14,1, and MacBookPro14,2 (13inch models) too.

For this we need the drivers from (a clone of which includes a preliminary touchbar driver and keyboard fixes). The following commands set this up.

Use the following commands:

cat <<EOF | sudo tee -a /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
# drivers for keyboard+touchpad

Now get and build the drivers:

git clone
pushd macbook12-spi-driver
git checkout touchbar-driver-hid-driver
sudo ln -s `pwd` /usr/src/applespi-0.1
sudo dkms install applespi/0.1

After thiis you can restart your pc and have your keyboard and trackpad working perfectly well now.

Please like this post and drop your questions i will get back to you asap.
