I would like to build/compile ubuntu mate 16.04.5 image from my laptop (I am running Ubuntu on my PC).
I have download ubuntu mate for raspberry pi 3 from https://ubuntu-mate.org/download/ and it works but I would like to understand/learn, how to build this image my self. Can someone point me wiki or some page ,explain how to build full Ubuntu mate 16.04.5 image for raspberry pi 3 from scratch ?

@Wimpy is it possible for you to point any wiki and documents so I can build image myself?

That’s easily done. I don’t think the links are particularly clear on here. Also, it looks like the page has been hacked as on first click it takes you to some random advertising page.
