I am attempting to install Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS on a Sony Vaio Laptop, the laptop's primary screen is non-functional. I run into a problem on the screen following the creation of a username/password. It appears to want me to select an avatar. I get an error relating to the webcam it seems when I look in the
/var/log/syslogs. I am able to boot from the disc no problem.
I have seen several suggestions here and elsewhere to use the alternate installer. It appears that the alternate installer does not load up the drivers for secondary monitors, so I am unable to see if any progress is being made or not. Is there a link that contains the steps that the alternate installer goes through ? Or a way to get that installer to load the second screen as well ?
It looks like this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/1021449
