    can not install Kubuntu 20.04 on my laptop

    I am using Ubuntu 18.04 on my laptop as it has 3 gb of ram I will not be able to upgrade to 20.04 so I downloaded Kubuntu 20.04 and made bootable USB disk with balenaetcher. On trying to install the Kubuntu the installer appears on the screen after checking the usb with option of try kubuntu and install kubuntu but even after moving the cursar and clicking on it installation doesn't start. Installer doesn't respond to anything except changing the language by shift keys. Is there anyway to solve this?

    Since no one else has jumped in......are you clicking on the icon or on the words? You need to click the icon.

    I tried it but the touchpad won't work. up and down arrow key changes the language, tab key highlights the option of try kubuntu and install kubuntu but on clicking the enter key the process doesn't start. This doesn't happen with ubuntu or xubuntu.

    If you're in the "Try Kubuntu" screen, only the keyboard arrows and Enter will work.

    Borrow or get a mouse and plug it in before you boot.

    Did you MD5 test the ISO you downloaded, or use torrents to download the file?
