Is there a way to acces terminal in the installer so I can change the desktop interface. The screensize is too big and I can not acces the menu's or buttons.

  • Have you tried Ctrl+Alt+F1 to get to tty1? If it works you should be able to get back to the GUI with Ctrl+Alt+F7. – quassy Sep 1 '15 at 23:48
  • I ran into the same problem. After quite some fiddling, I qas able to quit the installer, and the screen actually popped into the correct resolution. I simply clicked the installer (last icon in the dock) to restart the installation wizard. Not sure if this would work for everyone, though... – waldyrious Feb 7 '16 at 21:36

Hit the key combination Alt + F2 that will open your applications menu. Once it is open, you can type in the command you need (pantheon-terminal, or switchboard).
