    "Install Ubuntu" absolutely busted

    Using SDC and then plugging one of my reliable units with the USB, all goes well right up to the point when Ubiquity goes on it's screen-roll. Does not detect hardware, does not even attempt to install anything. No dialog status bar on the bottom, underneath the carousel.

    Re: "Install Ubuntu" absolutely busted

    I have seen the same thing for the last 3 days trying to use USB to install. How do we file a bug against this?

    Thanks Bill

    I gave the so-called amd (+mac) iso a try though did not click on the "Install now"
    Mainly because I never got an "Installation Type" screen so wasn't going to risk losing my current installs

    Did you get the "Installation Type" screen, either before or after 'Install now'? (it should be before

    2nd reason is because I don't see why I'd want the +mac image for an intel machine...

    No .. I did not get "Installation Type". Tried the live session also .. no go. It just walked me through up until username/password <continue> and then the Ubiquity carousssel.

    Well without the "Installation Type" & partitioner ect. the .iso is basically worthless, maybe tomorrow or so will be better..

    Earlier today I noticed that there were now daily images on the qa site. I downloaded today's (20121107) desktop amd64 and I got the same thing that you guys are reporting.

    The slideshow worked great but it did not give the Allocate Drive Space screen, So no option to Do Something Else or anything else. It took the location, the keyboard and my details but did not install.

    See, what you get by complaining about Ubiquity! It is not being included in the image anymore.

    It is a new style live session. It takes you through the install process without actually installing. It is for those of a nervous disposition.

    Regards.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
