TOPIC: Ubuntu Mate customized image for Raspberry PI 3?

Ubuntu Mate customized image for Raspberry PI 3? 1 year 5 months ago #8338

So I've been thinking, wouldn't it be great if we can provide a customized Ubuntu Mate image for Raspberry PI 3? Something anyone can just stick in a raspberry pi 3 and get a working environment with INDI/Ekos/Web manager from the get go?

So how do we proceed with that? I'm not familiar with Ubuntu Mate, and especially no experience at all with making images for RPI3. Any starting ideas?

Kstars/ekos working well.
I plan to upgrade my tinyastro project with it. Other than just install kstars to ubuntu-mate, I need to support other platform, like rk3188 and rpi2, so some other staff need to install.
lin_guider for guiding , hostapd to make wifi as an AP, VNC to remote control and other custom scripts.

And I think ubuntu-mate the full desktop is a little heavy for rpi3, so I use lubuntu-core and kstars, it work well for me.

Do you want to create an image of the system drive of a working RPi3 installation with other tools included? Is it that what you understand under "Customised Ubuntu Mate image"?

I back up my working system disks with CloneZilla and that works fine. The image file is rather big but I think there are solutions for.
My reference config is Ubuntu-Mate (latest version) with x11vnc, a configured ntp server, indilib and Kstars full installation and some other components such as firmata if I use Arduino, Python IDEs, Phd for tracking, hostapd for hotspotting, etc.

I can contribute if it is clear from where we are going to make these images available.

Yes, they're going to be publicly available. Though the question on where to host them is something else. Do you also have INDI Web Manager configured in your system?

A custom image for Rpi3 or 2 would be great. I would prefer Rpi3 because it allows me not to use a usb hub to power the lodestar x2. Here is the setup I'd like to use:

I see only two USB cables for two CCD cameras.
What you use for mount control?

There should be another USB to serial cable connecting the Rpi3 to the EM-200. The Pi is so light that is only kept in place by some velcro.

Not yet as I just discovered it a few days ago. If I have time this weekend I will try it out and include it in the image.
