Step 1: What You'll Need

Step 2: Download the Image

Go to http://ubuntu-mate.org to download the lastest Image available.

Click on the “Downloads” button. Click on the “Ubuntu MATE 16.04.2 LTS” Click on the “Raspberry Pi” option.

Step 3: Writing the Image

Open up Etcher and Click “Select Image”.

Select the Ubuntu MATE Image we just downloaded.

Click on “Select Drive” to select the Drive you want your image to be copied to.

NOTE: Remember to select the correct one, as the process will be messed up if you don’t choose the right one.

Click on “Flash” and wait for it to copy the image to your SD Card.

After it is done, it’ll automatically unmount the SD Card so you can take it from your Computer to continue the process on your Raspberry Pi.

Step 4: Setting Up Ubuntu MATE

Wait for Ubuntu MATE to boot, it will automatically rezise the partition so it uses the whole MicroSD Card.

You’ll be prompted with the “System Configuration” screen.

Pick your language and then hit “Continue”

Pick the closest city to yours in the map and hit “Continue”

Your keyboard settings will be auto-detected, after they are, click on “Continue”

The system will continue to configure itself, and after it is done, it’ll reboot.

Once the system reboots, you’re ready to use Ubuntu MATE.

The Ubuntu MATE installation on Raspberry Pi is completed and that’s it for this tutorial.
