Can't get Ubuntu Mate on NOOBS?

Sat Sep 05, 2015 9:53 pm

So Ubuntu mate is now an 'official' third party OS I guess:
https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/

I'd like to install it to try it out, I know how to install using a .img file, no problem.

The problem is that I would like to install it using NOOBS instead, but Ubuntu Mate isn't an option when using NOOBS. I like to have multiple OS's in case I want to use something like OSMC to watch movies and so I have to use NOOBS to do this..

I've looked at the README for NOOBS here: https://github.com/raspberrypi/noobs#ho ... os-version

but I can't quite figure out how to do it.
If someone could show me how to get NOOBS to install both Ubuntu Mate and OSMC on the same SD, that would be great.

only raspbian is included into NOOBS, to install other stuff you need to connect it to the internet, by connecting a network cable between you cable modem/router and the PI.
if you need to install an .img image, then you cannot use NOOBS, but must use DD instead.

you also need to install a boot selector, such as berryboot.

Ok, yeah Ubuntu doesn't show up under noobs as downloadable, but all the other OS's do, I'll look into DD, not sure exactly what it is but I'll see if it works.

thanks

Hey,
I'd like to install Ubuntu Mate using Noobs too. Could you add it to the options? ;)
