Ubuntu Images for Download

  |   Source

I created a first bunch of precustomized Ubuntu based images that can be downloaded at [1] now. The following versions have been bootstrapped:

  • Ubuntu 16.04.3
  • Xubuntu 16.04.3
  • Ubuntu 17.04
  • Xubuntu 17.04

Please just pick your desired distribution. After writing the image to an USB stick you should be able to install it the way you know from every other Ubuntu distribution.

You can also load a live-system to test it, before you decide to install it.

This images also allow enabling full disk encryption.

What changes have been included?

All changes have been stripped into a set of Debian packages. Those basically are used to get the following features running on the GDP Pocket:

  • fan control
  • backlight control
  • audio
  • wireless lan
  • suspend modes
  • screen rotation

All scripts that are used to create the images and the included packages can be found on github [2]. I have not yet created a usable documentation, how you could build your own image. If you are planning to do so, maybe just add an issue so I know that there is some interest on that.


The image basically contains patches based on the work of several people. The patches have been taken from the github project of cawilliamson [3].

The project is based on basic contributions by
