first time posting. I have a new Acer Nitro 5 and I'm trying to install Ubuntu 18.10 on it. I disabled secure boot, tried nomodeset and it still didn't work. I got it to install adding acpi=0, but then it didn't recognize my wi-fi adapter... does anyone have any idea what I can do to fix this? The laptop has a nvidia graphic card, and I heard it might be the issue with it, but I couldn't install it even with nomodeset active. The main issue seems to be that the mouse freezes completely. I can access the terminal on the new install, but nothing else. I don't know what to do to solve it, I'm fairly new to Linux and I can't find this exact problem (or the solutions don't work). Thanks in advance!


You might like to try 18.04 LTS before trying 18.10 (non-LTS)

LTS means Long Term Support and can be considered to be more stable. Especially if your problem could be hardware drivers. I'm curious how a LTS install would process.
