I had Ubuntu 12.04. I used disc to install Kubuntu 12.10 [Downloaded from: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/da...sktop-i386.iso]. However, update option was not available. So I decided to install Kubuntu 12.10 on Ubuntu 12.04 without formatting it, as I had movies stored in that partition. "Warning: You are trying to install without formatting. Make a backup of system folders like /var /usr before proceeding with installation. They will be replaced" - this is just a gist of the warning message. I went through with installation. Later, when installer was configuring, I received an error saying some of the packages could not be saved and that I may have to manually install them after restart. System restarted automatically after clicking ok.
Grub got updated. However, when I choose the first option, it shows Kubuntu logo (loading screen). Then it just shows a black screen with invisible cursor (not terminal). I can type anything, press enter, etc. Text gets displayed on the screen. Yet nothing happens. I tried leaving it like that for long time, still Kubuntu did not start. Any solution?
PS: Black screen appears immediately after the Kubuntu loading screen disappears.
Fortunately, I had dual boot before trying Kubuntu 12.10 installation and Grub upgrade did not change existing options. Now I'm using Windows XP. Please help me with Kubuntu 12.10! Please remember that I don't have the option to format the drive.
Thanks and regards,
