QGIS on Raspberry Pi

Hey! This is really old! The current version of Raspbian has QGIS 2.4 included in the repository. Just install that. It won’t run very fast on single-core Raspberry Pis, though.


  1. Install Raspbian:
  2. Update Raspbian from its Debian wheezy base to Debian jessie:
    • sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list # or use your favourite editor
    • change all references of wheezy to jessie
    • sudo apt-get update
    • sudo apt-get upgrade # this will take a long time, with occasional user prompts
    • sudo apt-get dist-upgrade # this will take a very long time
  3. Install qgis: sudo apt-get install gdal-bin qgis

This will install QGIS 2.2. It’s a bit slow for general use, but it does work …
