I have tried many times to install unbent-mate on my raspberry pi 3 model b+ without any luck. I had a strange error message saying something like Kernel Panic. I used all the instructions to install it without success.
It seems (I might be wrong) that the only release of ubuntu mate available for armv7 (32 bit). The pi b+ is 64 bit (arm64) and I was wondering if the ubuntu-mate was not working because it was for the 32 bit of the pi.
Is there a version of ubuntu mate that work with arm 64?
I find the rasbian a bit too basic as a desktop, when I launch the web browser (chrome) and I have a couple of other windows opened like the terminal and file manager, everything is so slow that it is not usable. I would like to try something different and ubuntu seems the great choice.
P.S.: I wish that I could add more ram to my raspberry pi board and a more performant cpu than the arm.
