I'm trying to install Ubuntu 18.04 for the first time on my new laptop, unfortunately, it has been nothing but a bit hassle.
When I booted the bootable USB with Ubuntu 18.04 it wouldn't install, so somebody suggested to install 16.04 first and upgrade from there. That was what I did, and that when my laptop kept hanging into the bootup screen, but I was still able to access the tty. After looking around I was thinking it was GNOME that was acting up so I installed lightdm. I was quite happy when my I finally heard the drum start up sound and was expecting a login screen. Unfortunately all I got was a lowercase in the left-hand corner of my laptop. I am still able to get into my tty, so could anyone help me to finally get to my login screen.
My laptop is a dual boot with Windows 10, I do not know if this is relevant. Thank you.
