Hi, I'm re-doing my Acer Aspire One and want to install Lubuntu.

But the installer crashes with "ubi-console-setup crashed, exit code 1"

But Ubuntu 12.04 installs fine.

In both cases I am installing from a USB stick (one per os). The sticks were set up under Windows using Lili USB Creator, and in both cases the .iso files were downloaded from Ubuntu.com.

(Ubuntu: http://www.ubuntu.com/pre-download?distro=desktop&bits=32&release=lts

Lubuntu: http://cdimages.ubuntu.com/lubuntu/releases/quantal/release/lubuntu-12.10-desktop-i386.iso )

It seems there might be some issue with the Lubuntu installer?

it would have been wiser to use the PenDriveLinux usb creator. Somehow I always run into a brick wall when i used to try LiLi. Pendrive


Download the Universal USB Creator. :)

Thank you dzponce11,

Using PenDriveLinux there was no install crash. The install completed succssfully and the system rebooted. Many thanks for your help!

Possible setup bug:

During setup, there are various screens used to obtain information from the user about the settings. One is the "Choose a Picture" screen.

With Ubuntu's install, the laptop's camera was turned on, and a selection of generic images were provided. With Lubuntu, neither occurred: both windows are blank. This whether using PenDriveLinux or Lili, so it must be a bug in the .iso

Where's good to report this?
