Shadow on Raspberry Pi OS is a new platform for our unified client, adapted to the arm64 architecture running Linux.
With its small size, multiple I/Os, and low cost, Raspberry is the perfect solution for a TV or small Desktop PC.
While Raspberry delivers less power than a modern PC, we’re launching the first version with lower acceptance criteria, and a few less supported features that we aim to unlock through further developments.
Please see the following sections to install Shadow on Raspberry Pi:
- Raspberry Pi 4 (Any RAM models)
- Ethernet connexion recommended
- Raspberry OS (64-bit with desktop)
How to install Raspberry OS

The easiest way to install Shadow on Raspberry Pi is to download and install the .deb package (64-bit), either through the graphical software center if it's available, or through the command line.
Installing the .deb package will automatically install the apt repository and signing key to enable auto-updating using the system's package manager.
Step 1: Downloading the .deb package
You can download the package by clicking on the link below:
Step 2: Install the application
Use one of the following two methods:
- Right-click on the .deb file and use the package manager to install it via the visual interface.
- Or open the terminal, navigate to the download folder where the .deb is located (using the
cdcommand) and type:
sudo apt install ./shadow-prod.deb
Step 3: Launch Shadow
You can launch Shadow from the Raspberry Menu on the top-left corner, in the Photo/Video section.
Alternatively, the repository and key can also be installed manually with the following script:
sudo apt-get install wget gpg
wget -qO- http://repository.shadow.tech/shadow_signing.key | gpg --dearmor > packages.shadowapp.gpg
sudo install -o root -g root -m 644 packages.shadowapp.gpg /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/
rm -f packages.shadowapp.gpg
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=arm64] http://repository.shadow.tech/prod bullseye main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/shadow-prod.list'
Then update the package cache and install the package using:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install shadow-prod
