Okay… I am not sure what I did wrong the first time around but I changed the whole way I did everything.
First I downloaded Etcher which works for windows, linux, and Macs.
Then I downloaded another image version https://yadi.sk/d/5_32km_EsCV2A ubuntu_mate_17_04_4.9.40_20171216.img.xz
On my SD card I ran this command in terminal to zero everything out sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rdisk2 ( Tried this with DU but kept throwing an error from previous try at it ).
Then used DiskUtility to format in Fat32.
Next I used Etcher to put the image on the SD.
There are still Failed loading resources couldn’t tell which. I also noticed that the initial login screen is for Kodi. I entered my pass word 4 times and it just kept cycling back to the login screen.
Finally I clicked on the icon on the top right and switched to Mate… Now I am at the desktop
Other than the Kodi login not working which doesn’t bother me, I just wanted Linux on it. I can use Kodi on the Andriod side. Now I wonder if rebooting back to Andriod will be an issue. Otherwise I’ll just remove the sd card.
Thanks for your help
