LUBUNTU 14.04 INSTALL STEPS:

Boot with a Live distro, by example, with Cubian into a microSD (>8GB) with these steps: https://github.com/cubieplayer/cubian/wiki/Install-Cubian.

Copy this Lubuntu image downloaded into the root of the microSD:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/lubuntu1404cubieboard2/files

Boot the Cubieboard2 with Cubian from the microSD.

Open a Terminal (Menu / Accesories / LXTerminal) and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo su -
[password is "cubie"]
cd /
gunzip lubuntu-14.04-cubieboard2-nand.img.gz
dd if=/lubuntu-14.04-cubieboard2-nand.img conv=sync,noerror bs=64K of=/dev/nand

It's done! Reboot :) You must to have Lubuntu 14.04.1 running with 4GB as NAND partition. User: linaro, password: linaro.

If you have a Lubuntu running into a Cubieboard2, you can expand the NAND to 4GB with this tutorial:

Familiar user interfaces (Lubuntu & lubuntu notebook) don't working in this image (Watched. Initialization in lightdm - empty). And under LXDE much does not work in this image. Synaptic will not starting and there is no volume control. After apt-get clean, apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade will run Firefox. Removed chromium-browser, gnome-network-manager and gnome-disk-utility in this image (this problem can be solved). Work to revitalize think will be very much...

Thanks for providing this image.

I got one problem though. It either won't boot or just doesn't respond to ssh.

What I did: I had a working lubuntu 12.xx image and copied the 14.04 image to nand

root@cubieboard2:~# zcat /home/linaro/lubuntu-14.04-cubieboard2-nand.img.gz | dd conv=sync,noerror bs=64K of=/dev/nand
dd: writing `/dev/nand': No space left on device
19002+41799 records in
60800+0 records out
3984588800 bytes (4,0 GB) copied, 547,668 s, 7,3 MB/s

I shut down the cubieboard, removed the SD card and booted. But I don't get any connection:

$ ssh linaro@192.168.1.134
ssh: connect to host 192.168.1.134 port 22: No route to host

But maybe I got it wrong and ssh needs to be enabled directly on the board? Which is a bit difficult for me as for some reason the board yields so usable signal on my monitor.

Any ideas?
