Hey everybody,

I'm completely new to Linux, and I'm trying to install Ubuntu on a brand new Samsung R60 Plus laptop.

When I tried to run the Live CD I can't get to the desktop environment (which I have seen when I run the CD on my old computer). However, after a couple of error messages (which I don't understand) I think Ubuntu is actually running, because I can type commands in what I believe is the Terminal but without the graphical interface.

Anyone had any problems with Ubuntu on this laptop, or any suggestions on what I can do?

Thanks very much in advance

Chris

Have you tried loading the LiveCD with safe graphic settings?

Also, can you describe the terminal that Ubuntu falls back to.
ie: Is the word "busybox" displayed anywhere?
