I am trying to install and use Xubuntu 14.04.2 on a new Intel NUC system. (Model: NUC5i5RYH, Intel Core i5-5250U, BIOS version 0137)
The installation medium is an usb flash drive and I am using the MINI-DisplayPort output.
I think the Xubuntu system doesn't recognize the graphic chip Intel HD 6000 correctly. I can only see the white mouse pointer on a blank screen. I can move the mouse pointer and can switch to the shell (CTRL+ALT+F1) but the XFCE desktop is not loading. So I can't install the system.
I tried Xubuntu 14.10 and it has the same problem. (Xubuntu 15.04 Beta is working.)
- mini HDMI output
- restart lightdm on the shell
Now I installed Xubuntu 14.04 with the mini.iso (text install). But after the installation the GUI is not 100% working. You can see it on this picture: http://www.directupload.net/file/d/3914/njdytg9x_jpg.htm
My question is: Is there any way to get Xubuntu 14.04.2 working on this device?
EDIT: I tried 'nomodeset' and I could install Xubuntu 14.04.2 (amd64). After the Installation this link (How do I set 'nomodeset' after I've already installed Ubuntu?) was useful.
