I have updated a fresh nice well performing lubuntu 16.04 on a LG x110 PC.

And the screen went bad just like this example.

I think it must be a newer Linux kernel or some thing alike. It would be nice to have update alerts just as Linux mint does.

I have tried to install the newest lubuntu 17 but this version messes it up from the very beginning. Maybe it could be a screen driver. Does any one know which update to avoid?


17.10 is using Wayland display protocol by default. You can try to modify the settings in the system file by switching to X as a default. Use Lubuntu installation media to get access to the console and modify the settings. Also you can try to downgrade the kernel version and see if that will help. I think this question should be ask on AskUbuntu page.

  • Thanx. But I dont think I have skills to modify Wayland. I have tried the antiX-17.1 distro and it works fine. – user285945 Apr 13 '18 at 9:29
