Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Booting from usb stick (using the iso -> img && dd magic method), i can can boot into the termnimal if i change the grub for try Xubuntu to be not quite, not set mode, no splash.

If I run lightdm (sudo service lightdm start). I get a black screen.

I figure the is a driver issue. Is there any way to do a terminal based install?

or are there any other solutions?
