    The code on the page says

    hdiutil convert -format UDRW -o ~/path/to/target.img ~/path/to/ubuntu.iso

    They want you to replace /path/to/ with the actual path the the file, buy my preferred way is to just drag and drop the file right into Terminal

    1) Open Terminal
    2) Copy and paste the following

    hdiutil convert -format UDRW -o

    (make sure there is a space after the -o )

    3) Drag the Ubuntu img file you downloaded in to the Terminal window
    4) Repeat step 3 but this time change the ending from ubuntu.img to ubuntu.iso
