    Can I install specific iso files for Lubuntu onto Ubuntu 9.10 to get internet?

    I could only successfully install Ubuntu 9.10 onto my laptop, but it doesn't detect wireless signals. I have a flashdrive with the iso files for the latest 32bit Lubuntu. Running Lubuntu on the laptop from the flashdrive, it detects wireless signals, but it freezes when I try to connect. No ethernet cable, I'm at a library.

    the main difference is that ubuntu use gnome while Lubuntu use lxde.

    but i think you might install the latest kernel (3.5) for better driver support. You can install this ppa:

    ubuntu-x-swat/q-lts-backport from launchpad

    https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat...q-lts-backport

    otherwise, to get around installation, you might need to add some boot option (google around "ubuntu boot option") like nomodeset or noacpi.
