Copying boot files to SD card on Ubuntu
When Raspi-LTSP installs, it generates a folder of SD card files ready to be dropped onto an empty SD card for your Raspberry Pi. Although this can be done on your Windows or Mac machine, it is even easier to plug in your SD card to the Raspi-LTSP server. If your server does not have an SD card slot, you may want to try a USB SD card reader. There is also nothing stopping you copying the files onto a USB stick to another computer to use its SD card reader.
Assuming you are connecting the SD card to the server (via USB or internal SD card adapter), follow the guide below.
Insert SD card into SD card reader on Ubuntu server. If the computer has an internal SD card reader, use it. If not, a USB reader is recommended.
Finally hit the eject icon beside the SD card and remove it from the computer. Now insert it into a Raspberry Pi, plug the network cable in along with keyboard and mouse and plug in the power. The Raspberry Pi should then boot successfully. Don't worry if you get an error complaining about the desktop environment, this is only a notice and not a problem. It only occurs with accounts that have logged directly onto the server.
If the Raspberry Pi fails to boot, check out the Support section.
