I read a lot about wifi problems or mousepad problems installing linux on mac hardware and thze possible workarounds.
Now I tried a life distro of Kali, it worked out of the box.
Than I burnt the kali regular distro on a usb stick and ran the installer.
Absolutely no problems, mousepad, wifi, display resolution working flawless.
Ubuntu is also running without any problems and without workarounds.
I use it primarily for network analysis,
but also to work on photos with Darktable or Gimp.
