I've been trying to find the latest pixel image on this webpage. But I don't know which release is the latest pixel image. Can someone tell me which one is the one? I have no internet connection on my pi so I cannot run sudo apt-get updateand sudo apt-get dist upgrade.

That web page is looking at the versions of Raspbian. Pixel is a desktop environment. Recently Raspbian Stretch was released and can be seen on the page you referenced by the latest folder date (2017-09-08). So you would be able to get Pixel (the desktop environment for Raspberry Pi) on Stretch or on later versions of Jessie.

According to the Raspberry Pi web site, all you need to do yo update the version of Pixel is run the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo reboot

And you will get the latest version of Pixel. You don't download it separately from Raspbian (Stretch, Jessie or otherwise)

More on this can be found on the Wikipedia entry for Raspbian.


Since the question has been edited to clarify that the Pi has no internet connection, I will edit this answer. To install components offline you need to find the .deb and transfer it to


on the Pi, and run

sudo dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/partial/***

where *** is the name of the deb file, as mentioned in this answer

Since there are thousands of deb packages, you'll have to find the required ones for pixel in some of these lists:

  • I don't have internet connection on my pi. How am my supposed to run the update and all? Should I just download it separately using the web site I posted?

  • I have edited my answer in response to the editing of your question. Leaving out that offline bit was rather important! Oct 23, 2017 at 9:08
  • Do you know which one is the required ones for pixel because I do not know which to find.

  • I really tried looking for you, could you at least give me an up vote for trying here and I'll dig a little deeper? Also - why can't you connect the pi to the internet? Oct 23, 2017 at 9:14
  • I don't have an adapter.
