I successfully install Ubuntu via USB from the live desktop, though I can only reach the desktop by setting the launcher to
nomodeset. If I do not, I get to the desktop wallpaper, hear bongos, and then nothing else appears.
After install, I launch Ubuntu from the boot loader and it runs fine. The only noticeable issue is that everything is very large, as if the screen is 800x600 or so. Then, I install the video drivers and am told to reboot.
After rebooting, I can no longer reach the desktop. This error appears:
*error* cannot initialize the agpgart module. drm fill_in_dev failed
And I am sent to a fullscreen black and white console, where I can issue commands. I do not know enough about Linux/Ubuntu to know what to do here and I just perform a fresh install and try again.
I have tried the official drivers from Nvidia. I have installed via terminal
nvidia-331. I have tried both 13.10 and 12.04. They all end up with the same results.
