    Very disappointed

    Installed and customized Ubuntu Budgie on my laptop - no problem.

    (b) No effective way to change to the nVidia third-party drivers (blanked the screen completely)

    Hello, if you really want to be able to switch to Ubuntu I suggest you start a thread and ask for help on solving these issues, start one thread for every issue and use a descriptive title.
