Can Ubuntu budgie 17.04 be run on a Raspberry Pi 3 model B? I see quite often people only running Ubuntu mate on them. I really like budgie though. What can I do?

1 Answer 1


No only a limited number of ubuntu versions can run on the Pi including but not limited to mate, kubuntu, lubuntu, xubuntu, and ubuntu-server these are the only versions that can run on the Pi as they are the only versions of ubuntu compiled for the specific arm architecture the Pi uses.

  • mate is not the only version of ubuntu that can be run on a pi... kubuntu, lubuntu, xubuntu, and ubuntu-server can also run on a pi.
