Finally I found the time to try to run efaLive on a Raspberry Pi. It was less effort than expected. You just need a Raspbian installation that you upgrade from Wheezy to Jessie. This can be done by exchanging "wheezy" by "jessie" in the /etc/apt/sources.list. Then run "apt-get update" and "apt-get dist-upgrade". This will take a lot of time, but at the end you have a Debian Jessie based installation. Now add "deb http://efalive.hannay.de/debian jessie main" to /etc/apt/sources.list and run "apt-get updat"e and "apt-get install efalive" (ignore the missing GPG key for now). Many dependencies are installed now. At the end everything is ready to run efaLive. Just configure raspi-config to boot into the GUI and put the following lines into a file /home/efa/.xsessionrc:

#!/bin/bash
exec ~/.xinitrc

Now you have to change the autologin user from "pi" to "efa" in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf. From now on, the efaLive Kiosk environment should start automatically.

Maybe I can provide a complete image for the Raspberry Pi in the future, we will see.

Hi Kay,
I deeplay hope that you will manage to relize the image. It's a great idea to make the image available for linux users
