Brand new XPS 13 DE failed on initial Ubuntu setup

This question is not answered

My brand new XPS13 DE initial Ubuntu setup terminated after it failed to connect to my WiFi AP.  I can now only log into a guest account.  How can I resume the initial setup?

  • Did this happen during a clean install or during the first logon?

    I had the same issue with a clean install, which always got stuck after the Wifi setup. I finally tried an image of Ubuntu Gnome, which installed without any issues whatsoever. I can only recommend Ubuntu Gnome, which performs really well. If you don't want to use the Gnome shell you can install Unity afterwards to get the normal Ubuntu experience.
