All my image releases are digitally signed and accompied with a .asc file so everyone can easilty check. And yes - this image is not from me and i have and will only build minimal images (as found in the development forum).

All images mentioned on the wiki page are named based on longsleeps image and for each of them is clearly stated that the GUI is added on top. I also don't know who made those images, but they are NOT the original images from longsleep (can be found on this server: https://www.stdin.xyz/downloads/people/l...64-images/), so my statement above is correct and also longsleep confirmed it!

I was not trying to be critical of anyone.  I only wanted to point out that at the official Pine A64 Software Release wiki page that those linked "Ubuntu" images are, in fact, Xubuntu images.  The descriptions there even say "based on Longsleep"; there are no inferences that Longsleep built these specific images.

There probably ought to be links directly to Longsleep's minimal system images from the official Pine A64 Software Release wiki page in addition to the pre-build desktop system image links.  That way, one could start fresh and install any desired desktop (E.g. Lubuntu, KDE, Gnome 3, Mate, ...) providing such support existed in the APT repositories (which is still a mystery but so was RPi in its infancy).

Make sense now?

Pine A64/A64+ software support "model" is still mostly a series of mysteries.  I don't mind at all.  It's part of the experience.

Sorry you got the impression i felt criticised, i wasn't. I also just wanted to point out that the longsleep images are only basic images without GUI and tllims answer regarding those images to be xubuntu images simply was and still is wrong. Many people mismatch the basic system with the GUI, so i wanted to be clear at this point.

All fine for me. And i agree also the software documentation from the pine guys is not at its best....

Appreciate and thanks to longsleep contribution,  we built this image based on longsleep work (update to latest uboot and kernel, uninstall firefox, install midori).

Do you have a link to this so that we can follow the development and will it be supported through Canonical?

I'd like to buy the Pine64 but only after it is confirmed that Ubuntu will work?  There has been some discussion that it may not be supported and that is a bit of a concern.

Thank you

I have the longsleep ubuntu up and running on a 2GB Pine64.  There are some glitches here and there but the more users, the more information the developers have to fix those glitches

Could you please have the software release page (http://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pine_A6...re_Release) updated so that the "Ubuntu" entries are corrected to reflect Xubuntu?  Ubuntu does not use the Xfce4 desktop; it uses the Unity desktop.  They are two different animals.

Thank you.
