I don't know if Ubuntu's ARM Linux directly works on our Pi2, but you could download "Ubuntu Mate" for the Pi2 from here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/

It's Ubuntu's version 15.10 for the ARM, with all the packages we know from the Intel/AMD-Ubuntu 15.10 plus Raspbian's kernel (I think) and some Raspbian drivers. Like with Raspbian, there's no OpenGL driver so far but an OpenGL-ES driver, so applications being happy with the OpenGL-ES-version work fine.

The Community Release you downloaded has no Desktop, it is Command Line Only, there are instructions on that page to install additional software:

If there's no special reason for going with 14.04, then go for 15.10 Ubuntu mate, better & improved version of OS.
