About This File

Arch Linux ARM is based on Arch Linux, which aims for simplicity and full control to the end user. It provides a lightweight base structure that allows you to shape the system to your needs. For this reason, the Arch Linux ARM image for the Raspberry Pi does not come with a graphical user interface, though you can easily install one yourself. Please note that this distribution may not be suitable for beginners.

Arch Linux ARM is on a rolling-release cycle that can be updated daily through small packages instead of huge updates every few months.


To update the package list:

pacman -Syu


To Install LXDE:

pacman -S lxde xorg-xinit xf86-video-fbdev


To run LXDE:

xinit /usr/bin/lxsession
