Building Raspbian Buster Support

Hello MATRIX Community,

Raspbian Buster just came out, and we are working hard to build out support for MATRIX libraries to be compatible with it.

In the meantime, we recommend using Raspbian Stretch.

  • Here is our kit image with Raspbian Stretch Desktop that has all the MATRIX packages pre-installed
  • Here is the blank Raspbian Stretch archive from Raspberry Pi

Thank you for your patience and support. We will provide an update soon!

I guess those images don’t work on Raspberry Pi 4, correct?

Correct! The Pi 4 only works with Raspbian Buster.

We now have partial support for Buster. More testing needs to be done, but the following packages have been updated if you want to try/test!

Snips is currently having issues, so we’re waiting on Snips updates for that, and some other third party services may not work as well.
