Raspberry PI – Ubuntu Mate – Verdict Unusable
This article shows my attempts to install Ubuntu Mate on a Raspberry Pi 4.
There are claims Mate works on Raspberry Pi.
Its official web site :
I followed the instructions and downloaded the installation image.
Which ended up with a file called :
Using balena Etcher I burned the image to a micro SD Card.
The Etcher program works very well, I have often used it on both Mac and Kubunu to make bootable USB Sticks.
After creating a boot Micro SD Card it was time to place it in the Raspberry Pi4.
Switch on and…… The rest is in the video.
I really wanted this to work but overall it is disappointing and unusable.
