I have ubuntu on my usb drive. It boots after I select boot from usb drive. It shows me the option to choose to try or install. Whenever I choose either, it asks me to log into my wifi which I do and then when I select continue... nothing. (Even when I avoid using wifi). When I use ctrl+alt+del to restart, it says "The application Compiz has closed unexpectedly". It gives me the option to relaunch which I do and another error message pops up that says "...send bug report..." which I do. I get a blank ubuntu screen. Again using ctrl+alt+del, I get a popup that says I'm logged in as a live user session. If I cancel the popup, I'm still stuck with the ubuntu screen. If I select log out, I get the ubuntu log in screen requesting username and password? (I didn't even get to the part where I typed a username and password so at this point I don't know what to type in. I tried blank username and blank password plus other various combinations I could think of and nothing.)
The computer currently runs linux so I'm trying install ubuntu since linux wont recognize my sound drivers and network card.
Any help would be appreciated. I just want to install ubuntu from a bootable usb drive since I have a cd rom drive without any cdrs or cdrws. Tomorrow, I'm going to try a different ubuntu version. Excuse the wordiness.
