Now, I thought that I try another distro, and tried to boot up Kubuntu. The ...

Unattended install for Lubuntu
cn flag

I'll revisit the question here - Lubuntu 18.04: Unattended install - asked a few years ago but never answered. Is is possible to have an unattended install of Lubuntu? Cloud-init is only for Ubuntu server, but should something like kickstart or preseeding work with Lubuntu? Thank you.

I hope everyone and their loved ones are healthy and happy.

When doing an Ubuntu 20.04 USB install with LUKS encryption and LVM, as the install onto the hard drive completes, a message appears that lists the location of the recovery ID. It states your recovery id is located in /home/ubuntu/release

So here's the question: Because of how and when it appears, it's unclear if that message refers to to t ...

Unable to install Ubuntu (20.04.02 or 21.04) on brand new HP Pavilion TP01 Desktop

I have this machine since a little more than a week and am working on it to install Ubuntu. Any recent version of Ubuntu will do (tried 20.04 and 21.04), single or dual boot doesn't matter much.

I boot it up with a USB "Startup Disk", ensure that the machine boots from that drive and get into grub. The first strange thing is that there's no "try Ubuntu" option... But when I select "install Ubuntu ...

How do I boot up Ubuntu from USB boot drive on Windows 8?
in flag

I am using an old Dell laptop with Windows 8.1, and I have a USB boot drive with Ubuntu ready to go. I tried to change my BIOS boot settings to use the USB, but I cannot seem to get it to work. For some reason the BIOS is trying to use a specific file from the USB, and won't use the entire drive. It is an empty drive aside from the Ubuntu ISO files. How do I add the USB as a boot option?

Thanks, Jimmy
