I've been trying to install Ubuntu GNOME for the past 7 hours, on my new ROG GL552. At the beginning, I couldn't even install it until I found this post:
I added the "nouveau.modeset=0 tpm_tis.interrupts=0 acpi_osi=! acpi_backlight=native i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 idle=nomwait" just before the --- part when editing the installation, and the installation ran smoothly.
After that, I couldn't boot into the system still because the same commands need to be added when booting, and it took me a little while to figure out where in the code I need to add them - since I'm pretty much a complete beginner.
After adding that line in the correct place, the system booted (although the touchpad functions are very limited) and I edited /etc/default/grub to contain the same commands.
I tried to keep following that forum post to try and understand how to make my Ubuntu work like it's supposed to - also with correct usage of my video card (gtx 960m), so I installed bumblebee and uncommented the nvidia driver section. rebooted the system and then the system doesn't boot yet again...
I really want to make Linux my main operating system but this really makes me want to give up. I don't understand half of the things I'm trying to do. I wanted to install the Ubuntu GNOME and really start learning Linux in and out but I can't even install it properly on this computer.
Does anyone have any tips? Any guide for a complete beginner on installing Ubuntu on this machine?
Thank you for any answer and I hope I can start using Linux
