I downloaded Ubuntu mate from Ubuntu-Mate Website . I am unable to extract the .xz file in my mac. On extracting file, it generates .cpgz file.

Please help me to extract the .img file and boot on a memory card.

To unpack run gunzip fullpath.xz

NOTE this deletes the xz file; use -k if you want to keep it.

Incidentally shasum -a 256 fullpath.xzwill let you check the file checksum.
