I have a HP dc5800 with VMWare Workstation. New Ubuntu installation worked perfect.
I cancelled the language selection because I had no internet connection to the virtual machine.
Ubuntu asked me to do a 251 updates. After the restart from those updates Ubuntu hangs on Battery check OK.
With Alt+F2 and
startx I got into the system.
The second problem I found was that the system asked me for a password when I type
Because the password is not accepted I get a second option to log on, this time with a login name field first. I choose administrator (did I choose did with setup, or is it default like in windows) and type my password. Directly I am in and type
I am asking myself what was the user accound for the first logon try(it is not saying).
With the full language support I get the same problem. Asking me for a password without telling me which user it wants.
After several tries the system still complains about being incomplete, but I see that the English language is installed(the one I wanted).
Then I got an empty desktop with no options. I have to crash the virtual machine to get somewhere.
While updating it told me that a part was ended unexpected (
compiz), but not enough memory to send a report to the developers.
Hope somebody has an idea.
