    Lubuntu on Acer Aspire One


    Hello,

    Im having trouble installing Lubuntu on my Acer Aspire One.
    I am currently running Xubuntu 11.04. I downloaded 32-bit Lubuntu 13.10 alternate via torrent. I then used sudo unetbootin to put Lubuntu onto my flash drive.

    The problem is that when I boot via my usb drive I get a screen of only _ over and over (so only a repeating underscore).

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    You should have md5sum checked, if you have not, the downloaded iso before using unetbootin to put lubuntu 13.10 on the usb.

    Code:
    7b2e034b235e595a6cd47a497ed78c0f *lubuntu-13.10-alternate-amd64+mac.iso
    b6496a86eb76fda70544f238e9d6b764 *lubuntu-13.10-alternate-amd64.iso

    md5sum checking a iso saves headaches like you are having,. Google will tell you how to do a md5sum check in Windows. Youtube will also.

    I had this problem with Mint 15 KDE.

    Two things I did:
    1. Make a new live USB but check the md5sum first.
    2. (This will probably not be the case for you but...) I switched BIOS to "pure UEFI" mode. Bizarre, huh?

    Now I no longer get the blinking cursor.

    So, in my case it could have been either of those two things, or both.
