I was using a wired connection.

Install gui choose one below

Xubuntu

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

Lubuntu

sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop

Kubuntu

sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

——————

If you have screen or resolution issues you can force 1080 resolution by adding this to config.txt

hdmi_ignore_edid=0xa5000080

——————

Overclock at your own risk

over_voltage=6
arm_freq=2000
gpu_freq=750

Make sure you have an additional cooling system.

    Two things that triggered me a lot:
    How do you actually confirm the 2Ghz overclock? Just by looking at browser pages? No this is not scientific and just dumb.
    The second thing: 32-bit… If you want to run any serious application on your Raspberry Pi you HAVE TO use 64-bit. Like Boinc-Client to fight Covid-19 with a few Raspberry-Pi's…

    Why are you editing the config.txt on os x and not directly with "sudo nano config.txt" command on Ubuntu's terminal? It's not the same?

    What's the max resolution the pi can go? I seem to max out somewhere less than 1080 on lubuntu. Is it possible to get 1440?

    Theory is one thing: practice it very differently …

    In my RPI 4 it has been completely impossible to install it …

    That if: he stays like 2 hours doing things …. taking command lines on the screen … for later … nothing at all! … is more hung than a keychain …

    Great disappointment the truth …

    Can someone help me?

    I installed Ubuntu 32bit on my Raspberry Pi 4 (4GB) but the problem is, that it needs around 40 sec to get to the login screen. Also the animations laging all the time. I tryed to overclock but there was No diffrence in performance.

    Would a SSD help in that term?

    I've got the system currently running on a SanDisk 64GB SD Card (80MB/s) 533X

    How did you connect raspberry pi with a desktop? If you used a wired connection, is it through ssh? I'm failing to do so for a long time. If you got any resources let me know

    When I try to install the desktop, all I get are errors and upon typing in startx, it tells me it's not found but I can install it. When I try that though, I still get errors. Is there something I'm missing?

    What is the 'loss' taking the 32 bit version and overclock it to 2 Ghz compared to the 64 bit version (that also crashes by me during install)?
