Good evening everyone! I just wanted to pass along some exciting news:
The Pre-ALPHA version of ArchPi - Reborn is now live for your testing and pleasure. Please bear in mind that this is a Pre-ALPHA, which means that there is not any promise that it will do anything it's supposed to do. For the download and instructions please head over to:
There is currently only one version/flavor up, and that's XFCE optimized for RPi 3 and 3B+ (using the ARMv7 packages). It is my hope that once I can get a quasi-stable version finished, the other desktop environments will follow suit relatively quickly.
With all of that being said, please don't forget that the Raspberry Pi, while great for a lot of things only has 1GB of RAM, so we are unlikely to see MATE, Cinnamon, Deepin, or even KDE environments run anywhere close to smooth, but never say never!
If anyone is interested in helping to test there are some quick instructions at the link above, and I'm always looking for feedback since I only have access to a Raspberry Pi 3/3B+ so if anyone is interested in testing other versions of the Pi let me know!
Thank you all for your support!
