Installer doesn't show up on some Chromebook

Status in gfxboot-theme-ubuntu package in Ubuntu:
I downloaded Ubuntu Wily 15.10, then copied into an USB drive in order to use that to install Ubuntu on my Chromebook Pixel 2.
After selecting the drive to boot from, I only get a terminal that shows up the following lines:
graphics initialization failed
Error setting up gfxboot
Same happens with any *buntu ISO image ( I tried KDE and XFCE as well).
At this point, I tried to download the Debian8 ISO image and I noticed that the installer doesn't recognize the video size, too but then asks for the user to manually select a suitable video format from a list of options. >From that point on, I was able to install Debian on the chromebook.
