Install Gnumeric on Raspberry Pi


Fast, reliable spreadsheet program
Ons of the spreadsheet programs specifically written for Linux, Gnumeric is lightweight, fast, and very responsive. It can save as .gnumeric files, .ods files, or even the familiar Microsoft Office .xls filetype.

To run: Menu -> Office -> Gnumeric
To run in a terminal: gnumeric

Fortunately, Gnumeric is very easy to install on your Raspberry Pi in just two steps.

  1. Install Pi-Apps - the best app installer for Raspberry Pi.
  2. Use Pi-Apps to install Gnumeric.


For the best chance of this working, we recommend using the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS, which is currently version Bookworm.
Raspberry Pi OS has 32-bit and 64-bit variants, both of which will run on most Raspberry Pi computers, including the Pi 3, Pi 4, and Pi5.
Gnumeric will run on either PiOS 32-bit or 64-bit.
