Re: Ubuntu image for the new Raspberry Pi 3 B+

Thu Oct 04, 2018 11:19 am

Dear all,
This is a great Ubuntu 16.04 .img that works like a charm on my RPi 3b+ with one exception. I have a problem with connecting reliably to wifi via the built-in broadcom module. I make 2 hypothesis:
1. whether the driver (which, as I understand by reading this forum is a copy-paste from Raspbian), or
2. faulty hardware

Just to let you know that I've tested 2 more usb wifi dongles and they work out-of-the-box as expected (Odroid module 4 - Ralink RT5572 and the dongle that comes with an old RPi2 kit - Ralink RT5370).

My feeling is that it's a problem about the wifi card's drivers, namely brcmfmac43455-sdio* files from /lib/firmware/brcm/

Please can you guide towards other alternatives to these drivers, that can still work with the current Ubuntu 16.04? I'd like to test them.

I've made a compatible Ubuntu Server 18.04 image for Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and I thought maybe it would be useful for you too, so I'm sharing it.

I don't have a hosting, so I've uploaded it to GitHub repo: https://github.com/AbelCS/ubuntu-server ... s/releases

If you have any question or problem, maybe I can help.


Regards!

Hi folks-

New here and searching for exactly what the original poster of this thread was looking for: Ubuntu 16.04 specifically to support ROS Kinetic on a Pi 3B+. I finally discovered that the generous people at Ubiquity Robotics have solved the problem it would appear.

https://downloads.ubiquityrobotics.com/pi.html

I downloaded the image, burned it, and it booted first try. The WiFi SSID is visible as documented, and after raking he leaves I'll press on from there. But certainly a breath of fresh air.

I hope this saves someone the pain I went through with a long list of failed attempts.

After upgrading to Ubuntu Desktop Internet no longer seems to be working and Firefox crashes the operating system.

What desktop environment are you using? If you're using GNOME (ubuntu-desktop) then Ubuntu is going to be very slow. Try using a lighter desktop such as lubuntu-desktop or xubuntu-desktop. Also, can you try downloading the Raspberry Pi 3 WiFi firmware by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/RaspberryPi#WiFi
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS desktop images for the Raspberry Pi 3.

On the Getting started section of the page you link to it says its user id/password is ubuntu/ubuntu

Wish I had found this thread much sooner. Ubuntu Mate up and running on RPi3B+ in about 30 minutes after days researching and following other sites.

The post by gkbot on Jun 28 2018 summarising the crucial elements from across the thread is superb. Simple, minimal and (as far as I can tell) complete. Solved all my problems from previous efforts at installation.

Thank you all.

I assume you meant this: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 7#p1334147 post, so for convenience of others I posted the link to it.

I was able to make a bootable USB image of Ubuntu Mate for the Raspberry Pi 3B & 3B+. Thanks to everyone who participated in this thread :)

I made torrents of the images:
I went and made a user account purely to say thanks for this! Worked like a charm, after a very frustrating afternoon trying other approaches

What's wrong with using this?

Have installed the the Preinstalled server image for my P3 and everything works out of the box
