@newtusmaximus, looks like those drivers were dropped in 16.04 You can get the driver from here - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1694350 and install it after you've installed 3.0 Better still, I would try this first - look in /lib/firmware in 2.8 and copy the following highlighted files (all starting with 'isl') to a USB:



Then copy them into your installed 3.0 in /lib/firmware, and reboot (make sure the files are owned by root).
That should work :)

Trying to install on my laptop (with a brand new SSD).  I checked auto login but now it wants me to log in.  No problem.  I get a login screen that has "Other" at the top (with a drop down menu type arrow that does nothing), a place for my user name then a place for my password.  When I enter my pass word I get "Incorrect password, please try again".  I KNOW I'm entering the correct password.  I've even tried to re-install LL 3.0 (just to make sure I got the right pass word) and it still won't take it.

What could I be doing wrong?

Are there numbers in your password?  Is the number lock on?

Yes and my laptop doesn't have a dedicated number pad.

I must have been dreaming earlier when I thought I could minimise the File Operation Progress box on LL 3.0 by copying to or from another volume other than the system one.
Which means the info I posted earlier isn't correct, my apologies  :-[
I guess I had the window/s closed as it will minimise via the panel button when the windows are closed, but it won't otherwise no matter what the source or destination.
The minimise option/button has been removed.

In LL 2.8 it's got a minimise button.




But in LL 3.0 it's missing & the right click option to minimise from the panel button is greyed out.




On my setup (MSI L1350D Notebook) LL 3.0 boots faster from a USB install than my 2.8 does from the hard drive, I'm finding it runs faster than Knoppix 7.6 that's installed on an indentical USB stick, which I think is quite an achievement as nothing I've installed to USB has gone anywhere near Knoppix in speed until now....sweet  8)

Congrats to everyone involved! LL3 is another fine release.

One issue that I did run into was during installation. I left my laptop for a short time and when I came back the screen had gone black (screensaver?). After touching a key I was presented with the login screen. I didn't know the default live system credentials so I waited a bit until I was sure the installation was complete. Is there any way to disable to screensaver logout during installation?

This may have been a change in Xfce 4.12 which LL3 is now using. I believe you can hide the window by clicking on the folder icon in the notification area. Not sure why they hid the minimize button in the transfer dialog though...seems odd.

I tried that but I think I used a lowercase L since most distros don't capitalize the usernames. I could have figured it out if I dropped to tty but this seemed like it might be an issue for new users to Linux in general.

found something strange. I created a new file, pasted the text into it and saved it. But then i saw that the icon had changed into an envelope. When i looked at the properties it says its a mailbox file. When i add .txt behind the name the icon changes to a normal txt file icon

Monkeyman,

My laptop doesn't have a physical number pad either, but it does have a virtual number pad.  By that I mean, some of the lettered keys become a number pad if I hold down the Fn key, like what's seen here.  In my example, keys for J, K, L, U, I, O, and P can also be keys for numbers when using the Fn key in the bottom left.  If you have something like this as well, when you try to enter letters that share a key with a number, that could affect the input of your password.

I think my first post above was a bit mealy-mouthed.
I was able to install LL 3.0 as a fresh install very rapidly and it worked out of the box.
Some previous problems with Broadband drivers and language support seem to have been ironed out and the only minor niggle is that I chose 'automatic login' but the password is still required.

I was able to add software including Slimjet and Google Earth as noted above, but this was greatly eased by the intelligent selection in Lite Software which together with that which is provided as basic gives the best offer of any distro.

I sorted my FF problem and I have a fully functioning crisp new system very quickly achieved
Thanks to the team again

Thanks Mike, that allows me to do what I want, I like to see the progress with the windows being open but minimised at different times.

I've seen your blank screen issue a couple of times, what I do now is when booted into the live media before starting the install process I go into the Power Manager settings, Security tab & change Automatically lock the session to Never.
It holds that setting until a shutdown/reboot etc. & the screen stays on if left unattended for a while.

Got a few things. I changed the language to Dutch. But in Menu the item My computer is still in English, so are the sub items under My Computer. And when i open my home folder and then theo i see the following. Some folders are in therre twice..with Dutch and English name. Not surte how to solve this..if it even is possible.


 


Reinstalled LL and then after setting Dutch as default language i didnt change the folder names, kept the old names. Now i dont have duplictate folders, no problem that they are in English.
