    [ubuntu] Re: Can't install Ubuntu 12.04 in MSI X320

    Ah, I think we had some misunderstanding. I installed Xubuntu 11.10, you seem to have installed regular ubuntu with unity.

    Alternatively, if you have no luck with the ubuntu startup disc creator, you could use unetbootin and point it to your downloaded iso file.

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't install Ubuntu 12.04 in MSI X320

    Sounds good. Keep me informed. F17 might be good because it is a later kernel 3.3.4 which comes with gma500_gfx, still 2D but worth a shot.

    Let me know if you are interested in xubuntu 11.10 - it...

    [ubuntu] Re: Can't install Ubuntu 12.04 in MSI X320

    Well, I've had no luck with 12.04. But honestly, I was getting the feeling that unity might be a bit clunky on this machine.

    I think I might know how to fix the wireless, but I am focusing on the screen resolution for the moment.

    Yes, I can never get around the black screen problem.
