At the request of many of our readers, we've decided to write the following tutorial to teach them how to install the Ubuntu Linux operating system on the Raspberry Pi 2 single-board computer (SBC).
In the past, it was not possible to install the Ubuntu Linux operating system on the original Raspberry Pi computer, but the second-generation Raspberry Pi Model B board features an ARMv7-based BCM2709 processor, allowing you to run the GNU/Linux distribution.
Some members of the Ubuntu Linux community managed to modify an official Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) image, upgrade its original Linux 3.13 kernel to Linux kernel 3.18, as well as to add all the necessary firmware and drivers from a third-party PPA (Personal Package Archive) to make it work on the Raspberry Pi 2 SBC.
