Installing Ubuntu on a laptop can be a daunting task.
I was looking for a way to get it up and running, but after some trial and error I was left with a bunch of problems.
Here are some of the problems that I’ve encountered.
If you are facing issues, please let us know!
I cannot connect to the network.
In my case, it is due to my laptop running Windows XP Professional Edition.
If I connect to my router, it usually works.
In other cases, it may not.
The system does not boot.
After installing Ubuntu on my laptop, I found that the system boots fine.
However, after reboot the system comes up with a “Welcome to Ubuntu” screen.
It then asks me to restart the computer.
After restarting the computer, the system displays a blank screen.
Ubuntu does not install on the disk.
I had no issues with installing Ubuntu, but when I tried to install a new disk, the installer came up with an error message that said “You need a network card or a USB stick with USB ports to connect to Ubuntu.”
I tried installing Ubuntu again on another drive, but this time the installer showed the error message.
There is no way to configure the disk configuration.
The install process asks me if I want to use my primary or secondary drive or partition.
I chose the primary drive, and then it asks if I would like to configure my partition.
There are no options to do this.
I also tried using a file system and a virtual disk to set up Ubuntu, and it worked fine.
It appears that the default partitioning is for primary drive only.
It is possible to configure a different partition for primary or backup, but that would require a manual partitioning process.
The installer will not install.
The installation process has some problems that it does not understand.
It asks me for the password, and if I forget it, I will be prompted to enter it again.
I then get a message that the installer is unable to locate the package I have specified.
After logging off, the process then starts up and displays a login screen.
The screen does not appear to work.
There was no prompt when entering my Ubuntu password.
When I logged on, the prompt appeared and asked me if it would be OK to log in.
I tried typing in my Ubuntu username and password, but the prompt did not appear.
There were no instructions when opening the installer.
The first time I opened the installer, I was greeted with an empty page.
I did not receive any instructions.
I have not found any errors in the installer installation process, but I would recommend using a system administrator’s password if you are running Ubuntu.
There have been problems installing Ubuntu with older software.
Ubuntu installs newer software when you upgrade your system to a newer version of Ubuntu.
This can cause problems with older computers that are not running Ubuntu, or older computers which are running older versions of Ubuntu that are running newer versions of the software.
I experienced the following problems installing older software on my Windows XP laptop.
The following software versions were installed on my XP laptop: Microsoft Office 2003 (Word 2007), Microsoft Office 2000 (Word 2003), Microsoft Outlook (Word 2004), Microsoft Excel (Word 2005), Microsoft Windows 2000 (Office 2007), Adobe Flash Player (Word 2010), Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 (Internet Explorer 11), Adobe Reader (PDF Reader) Microsoft Office Word 2003 (Office 2003), Adobe Acrobat Reader (Word 2006), Adobe Photoshop (Adobe Photoshop 2004), Adobe Web Tools (Word 2008), Microsoft Powerpoint 2007, Microsoft Word 2007 (Word 2009), Adobe InDesign 2003 (Designer 2010), Adobe Illustrator 2003 (Illustrator 2010), Google Chrome (Firefox 3), Google Mail (mail client), Google Docs (spreadsheet) 10.
I received an error when installing the following programs on my machine: Apache httpd, Apache http, MySQL 5.1, PHP 5.2, Perl 5.10, PostgreSQL 9.1.7, Oracle Solaris 10, Microsoft SQL Server 2012, Microsoft Visual Basic 2008 Express (MS-Windows) and Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 (Microsoft Visual C++) 4.1 and older versions are not supported.
The Ubuntu installation does not include a graphical installer.
I am using Ubuntu 13.04 with the latest Ubuntu 13 on a MacBook Pro with a Core i5 CPU, Intel Core i7 CPU, 16 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD and GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics card.
It was installed in a Virtual Machine with VMware ESXi on an HP EliteBook 13 7000LM laptop.
The desktop is completely black and does not show any text.
The default login prompt appears to be blank.
When logging in, I received the following message: Unable to connect.
This may be due to an error.
