    Graphics UI problem installing Ubuntu 14.04 LTS/14.10 on Intel NUC5i5RYH




      I'm new to Ubuntu but wanted to try it on my Intel NUC NUC5i5RYH. I've tried to install 14.04 LTS and 14.10 from a USB stick I made, but with both of these during the installation process all the onscreen UI (like the 'next', 'continue', 'ok' buttons) are blacked out and the window where the installation dialogue should be is just a black empty window. This meant I wasn't able to complete the install as I didn't know where to click to proceed. I tried instead running Ubuntu from a live CD and on the desktop the onscreen UI (like the maximise and close buttons) are all similarly messed up/glitchy.


      I have managed to get the Ubuntu 15.04 beta to install from a USB stick and this seems to fix whatever problem is occurring but I'd prefer to be running 14.04/14.10.


      model: NUC5i5RYH

      RAM: 16GB CT2C8G3S160BMCEU (Crucial 8GB x2)

      BIOS: RYBDWi35.86A.0137.2015.01017.1700

      Processor: Intel Core i5-5250U CPU @ 1.60Ghz

      Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 6000

      Hard drive: 160Gb SSD - Intel SSDSA2M160G2C 3Gb/s SATA

      I haven't tried installing any drivers or updating the BIOS yet (I think the NUC is running the latest version out of the box? 0137?)

      Also, with Ubuntu 15.04 when trying to play a video using VLC I get green streaks/interference on the window (but the video plays ok using the built-in Video player).


      I haven't tried Windows yet but I assume W7 won't have these kind of graphics problems?

      Are these problems with Ubuntu occurring because of the HD Graphics 6000 card?

      Any suggestions?
