GPD Pocket 3 and Ubuntu Mate 22.04 LTS

Hello Community!

I was wondering if there is any plan of making the Ubuntu Mate 22.04 LTS tweaked for GPD Pocket 3.

The current 21.10 is going to reach end of life on 14th of July 2022

I suppose we can do-release-upgrade but I personally prefer clean installs.

I would especially like to hear from @Wimpy

Thank you all for your hard work.

OK so I will answer myself and I hope others can benefit from this as well:

  1. Download the regular x64 Ubuntu Mate 22.04 LTS ISO and install the OS with it: https://ubuntu-mate.org/download/amd64/jammy/

  2. Once the installation is finished apply the tweaks for Pocket 3 on top:

sudo apt install git
git clone https://github.com/wimpysworld/umpc-ubuntu.git
cd umpc-ubuntu
sudo ./umpc-ubuntu.sh enable

This will install all the scripts/tweaks you would have like if you used the modified 21.10 ISO for Pocket 3

  1. Reboot and enjoy the Pocket 3 optimized Ubuntu Mate LTS :slight_smile:
