Install Eagle CAD on Raspberry Pi
Design printed circuit boards.
This is Eagle CAD's last 32-bit Linux release (7.7.0), emulated using Box86. Subsequent Eagle releases dropped 32-bit support.
To run: Menu -> Programming -> Eagle
To run in a terminal: eagle
Fortunately, Eagle CAD is very easy to install on your Raspberry Pi in just two steps.
- Install Pi-Apps - the best app installer for Raspberry Pi.
- Use Pi-Apps to install Eagle CAD.
For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS, which is currently version Bullseye.
Raspberry Pi OS has 32-bit and 64-bit variants, both of which will run on most Raspberry Pi computers, including the Pi 3 and the Pi 4.
Eagle CAD will only run on PiOS 32-bit. Pi-Apps will not let you install Eagle CAD on PiOS 64-bit.
Pi-Apps is a free tool that makes it incredibly easy to install the most useful programs on your Raspberry Pi with just a few clicks.
Open a terminal and run this command to install Pi-Apps:
wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Botspot/pi-apps/master/install | bash
