Ubuntu Core How-to guides

If you have a specific goal, but are already familiar with Ubuntu Core, our How-to guides have more in-depth detail than our tutorials and can be applied to a broader set of applications. They’ll help you achieve an end result but may require you to understand and adapt the steps to fit your specific requirements.

How-to-guides Get stuff done
Activate a recovery mode Repair, restore or reinstall an impaired device
Add a system user Write a USB-based assertion to create a user
Build a gadget snap Create a version of Ubuntu Core for your device

Alternatively, our tutorials section contain step-by-step tutorials to help outline what Ubuntu Core is capable of while helping you achieve specific aims, such as installing Ubuntu Core or building a custom image for your device.

Take a look at our Reference section when you need to know which options can be used, what functions the API supports, which rescue modes are supported and the contents of gadget.yaml.

Finally, for a better understanding of how Ubuntu Core works and how it can be used and configured, our Explanation section helps you to expand your knowledge and become better at Ubuntu Core.

I’ve mentioned this before, but I find pages like this confusing, in that there are links both in the left-side navigation menu as well as on the page itself, leaving the reader confused as to which set of links to follow. It’s especially puzzling if some of the links are duplicated in both places.
