http://ubuntuforums.org – Using several different means of trying to install Ubuntu on a partition I have been unable to complete the installation. The system during installation does not recognize the touchpad, keyboard, or any usb peripherals as substitutes. I have tried several different versions of Ubuntu with no success. I'm missing Ubuntu very much ='(. Any suggestions, all knowing internet? Laptop: Toshiba Satellite L505D (Hardware)
