comment Unable to install Ubuntu on Lenovo Y500
@githlar: I can't remember the exact steps, but I basically used the Arch install procedure (wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/…). I installed ubuntu from the USB, booted from the USB again, chrooted in my ubuntu install (you will have to symlink some important directories since you do not have the convenient arch-chroot script available), and installed syslinux, removed grub. If you need more help, then maybe you should ask a new question

@axaluss: But answers are still pouring in, and I am not sure mine is the best one. Until I re-format and try the other solutions posted here, I will not.

Wow; I need to try this. But for now I have solved it by using syslinux instead of grub. Just works.

comment Unable to install Ubuntu on Lenovo Y500
I doubt it, because I either (a) can't install in case of EFI or (b) can install but never get past grub. The video card might be a further issue, but my current problem is either (a) installing ubuntu or (b) getting past grub who just displays "grub loading." I will still try of course

comment copy text on unselect, not on select
I figured, but I thought maybe a clipboard manager could take over, for example, add the selected text to clipboard then restore previous selection

comment Remove both unity and gnome?
Very good intro! I can manage with that (but I won't mark anything as an answer before I have tried the methods).

comment Remove both unity and gnome?
I like gnome panel too, but in my every day tasks, I notice that I use solely synapse, occasionally clicking a pinned launcher if my hand is not on the keyboard, so I figured I could do away with the bloat of a desktop manager. Regarding the method to achieve this, it might be better to begin with a minimal Ubuntu and work the way up rather than down: help.ubuntu.com/community/CompizStandalone
