    Re: can't install

    could you give us a little more information to go on?
    for starters what make and model is your computer, How much ram What video card are you using?

    That information would help us help you get it going.

    I suspect it's a video card problem you might want to try booting it with the nomodset parameter.
    you can do that by hitting the left shift key when ubuntu begins to boot, go to f6 and select nomodeset from the menu hit esc key then enter.

    For this hardware Lubuntu is a better choice.

    would have to agree with mrgs Lubuntu would be a better choice for you hardware.
    I doubt that your video card is new enough to boot unity , it requires 3d.
    Try Lubuntu

    try to see if you have additional drivers,you can open software&Updates center and click where it sais additional drivers.
    or if you have ATI AMD video card could type this in terminal,

    apt-get update
    apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle fglrx-dev

    or


    sudo apt-get install fglrx-control

    Threads merged. Please open only one thread per subject.

    For a 64 MB card there are no additional AMD drivers. You need to post all hardware details, especially about the graphics card, in order to get better help.
