Raspberry Pi PIXEL UI install

The Raspbian + PIXEL image is available from the Downloads page on our website now. Note that the uncompressed image is over 4GB in size, and some older unzippers will fail to decompress it properly. If you have problems, use 7-Zip on Windows and The Unarchiver on Mac – both are free applications which have been tested to decompress the file correctly.

To update an existing Jessie image, type the following at the command line:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install -y rpi-chromium-mods
sudo apt-get install -y python-sense-emu python3-sense-emu
sudo apt-get install -y python-sense-emu-doc realvnc-vnc-viewer

and then reboot.

If you don’t use xrdp and would like to use the RealVNC server to remotely access your Pi, type the following:

sudo apt-get install -y realvnc-vnc-server

As always, your feedback on the new release is very welcome; feel free to let us know what you think in the comments or on the forums.

I’m following these directions, which are the same as these directions.

I have done update (twice) and upgrade. and I still get the “Unable to locate package” error:

$ sudo apt-get install realvnc-vnc-server realvnc-vnc-viewer
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package realvnc-vnc-server
E: Unable to locate package realvnc-vnc-viewer

The realvnc-vnc-server package isn’t in the repositories for jessie, but you can download the deb file VNC-Server-6.2.1-Linux-ARM.deb from here: https://www.realvnc.com/download/vnc/raspberrypi/

sudo wget https://www.realvnc.com/download/file/vnc.files/VNC-Server-6.2.1-Linux-ARM.deb

And install it manually with sudo dpkg –install filename

sudo dpkg -i VNC-Server-6.2.1-Linux-ARM.deb

install raspi-config

sudo apt-get install raspi-config

and then
