[lubuntu-devel] How to install Lubuntu Cosmic

I tried to install Lubuntu Cosmic from the 64-bit daily iso file (dated 
July 7). I failed after trying in several ways to install it via a USB 
pendrive (cloned with mkusb), a DVD disk (burned and verified with k3b). 
Several different errors were displayed, depending on what options I tried.

The target was my Toshiba laptop with Intel i5 (generation 3), that I 
have used to test Lubuntu since 2013. It seems to me that Calamares does 
not work, at least not as it is bundled in Lubuntu Cosmic right now.

But I could install Lubuntu Cosmic from the current Cosmic Ubuntu 
mini.iso (64-bit). And the installed system works well.


If *you* can install Lubuntu Cosmic with Calamares, please describe with 
details, how to select options in the different steps, and tell me if 
there are other things to consider, for example about the computer 
(hardware components and settings).

Best regards
