Ubuntu – Xubuntu/Lubuntu/Ubuntu 12.10 cannot load XFC/LXDE/Unity on netbook running Intel N2600

12.10cedarviewintelintel graphics

I just tried doing a fresh install of the 3 flavors of Ubuntu 12.10 and every time I try to boot into the GUI interface, I face an error saying "Fatal Error: No screens detected" and then just thrown into the terminal prompt screen.

Did ubuntu discontinue support for the Intel N2600 (GMA 3600) cpu/gpu? I'm trying to install linux on a Asus EEE PC 1025C netbook.

  • This sounds like this bug. This can be tested by adding gma500_gfx.blacklist=yes as a boot parameter at the Grub bootloader.
