I have a Raspberry Pi 3, and it comes preinstalled with Mathematica 10, I was hoping someone could tell me if installing version 11.0 is possible?

    $\begingroup$ It will be possible (when 11 is released for the Raspberry Pi). $\endgroup$ – ilian Nov 2 '16 at 18:24

    $\begingroup$ Raspbian is technically a version of Linux though no? $\endgroup$ – M.R. Nov 2 '16 at 18:32

    $\begingroup$ Yes, however the CPU architecture is ARM, so the regular Linux release cannot run on it. $\endgroup$ – ilian Nov 2 '16 at 18:33
  • $\begingroup$ @ilian Does WRI have a site tracking the latest release for raspbian? $\endgroup$ – M.R. Nov 13 '16 at 22:30
  • $\begingroup$ No, not that I know of. $\endgroup$ – ilian Nov 15 '16 at 17:50

Mathematica 11.0.1 has been just released for the Raspberry Pi.


(* "11.0.1 for Linux ARM (32-bit) (January 17, 2017)" *)

As usual, one may immediately upgrade via apt-get.


Mathematica 11.2 is available on the Raspberry Pi but doesn't seem to automatically update. But you can console yourself with "sudo apt-get upgrade wolfram-engine"

  • $\begingroup$ I did get the update automatically with a simple sudo apt update, sudo apt upgrade. But I am told it's not compatible with Jessie so I upgraded to Stretch first. Are you on Stretch? $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Jan 30 '18 at 16:34

Depending upon all things configuration, from the terminal on an aged New Out Of Box Software RPi try

 sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

to upgrade Mathmatica to 11 along with everything else.

 sudo apt-get install wolfram-engine

may work as well.
