PardusARM Operating System for Raspberry Pi

Date: 21 Apr 2016


Pardus Operating System for Raspberry Pi - 001




Pardus Operating System for Raspberry Pi

Pardus Operating System Raspberry Pi - 74

Today, we are going to demonstrate how to install and use Pardus operation system on Raspberry Pi 2 Model B v1.1.

First of all, we need to know the meaning of the word Pardus. A pardus is a predator animal, a type leopards that live in the wilds of Anatolia, in Turkey. It is a strong, fast animal that likes to live on its own. Thats why, developers gave its name to their unique Raspberry Pi Operating System. However, we will show you how to use this powerful OS to do great things, it will probably only take as much time as you need to read this article, we know that many of our readers are not new to Raspberry Pi, and most of you have a Raspberry Pi board. 

(Note: we are using PardusARM v3, which is based on Debian/Raspbian) 

The list of requirements:

  1. Your computer (With an internet connection wired or wireless)
  2. Raspberry Pi 2 Model B v1.1 (With SD card, mouse, keyboard e.t.c.)
  3. Ethernet cable (long enough from your modem to Raspberry Pi)
  4. Micro SD card reader (Class 10 32GB would be cool)
  5. Speaker (for Raspberry Pi's audio jack to hear a voice)


Installing Pardus Operating System on Raspberry Pi

Step 1: Downloading Pardus OS for Raspberry Pi


Open your computer and browse to:

Click "indir" to download. If this is hard to do, you can go directly to this alternative IP adress :

On this page there are two files :

  1. 1.03 GB
  2. 61B

Click on zip file to begin download. If your browser is Google Chrome and you can't download the 1.03GB file, try to use Internet Download Manager to do it more easily.

Step 2: Copying the OS to SD Card

Now, that we have downloaded Pardus to our computer's desktop. We needWin32 Disk Imager program in order to flash this .rar file into our SD Card directly and easily. Copying the files as a whole image is better than Copy-Paste, this way Raspberry Pi will process the data on the SD Card as an operating system.

Once done, you plug in the SD Card into your Raspberry Pi 2 board, and then give power to it.

Careful: It is better not to insert the SD card while the Pi is running, it should be done while it is off.

Step 3: Your First Boot of Pardus on Raspberry Pi

The SD Card is on board, we have power in it and the system begins booting. And the first this you will see is a nice error message like this:

lib_request_firmware: Error - Failed to request Firmware

It is just because we didn't attach the ethernet cable to the board and the system couldn't update itself, which is an automatic Procedure once you are online. Wait for a couple of minutes and you see black screen with texts on it.

Step 4: Logging into Pardus 

While you are on that black screen, press "ENTER" activate  the login Procedure.

Use "pardus" as the username and the password as well

PardusARM GNU/Linux pardusarm login: pardus password: pardus

Note: These login name and password are for PardusARM version 3.

Here are some useful quick commands to use at this point:


Just like Raspbian OS, you can use 'startx' to see the desktop.

nano /etc/wpa.config

This code is to modify the Wi-Fi settings.

Step 7: How to give an internet access to Pardus

Use an ethernet LAN cable from Raspberry Pi to your modem. (Picture 1)

You can use a USB Wifi adapter; you can veify the wireless connection through the Wifi settings.(Picture 2)

After you plug in the ethernet cable, reboot your Raspberry Pi board with internet connection. Press enter on the keyboard. and then login with the default ID: 'pardus' and the default password: 'pardus' when you see yellow command line.

sudo nano /etc/wpa.config

On the editor page set the parameters like these:

ssid="**your SSID of your wireless modem**" psk="**your wifi password"

You can modify these with the arrow buttons on your keyboard.

To save the changes: press CTRL + O then  E

You should see the code  Wrote 12 lines  you saved the Wifi info succesfully.

CTRL + X to close the editor to return.

Now, type startx to open the desktop

At the top right corner you can see the logo and there is a white thing in front of it, right click on it >> Bağlantı (Connection) >> Wired Network >> Now you are connected perfectly.

Go to default web browser from bottom panel and click on the globe icon to run the web browser. >> Type the link >>and hit enter >> If you can see the Pardus logo you are connected to the web!

Step 8: To sum up




Well done! You have got a new operating system!. Thanks to the Pardus Developer Community, working from the 1990s till today, we have got an operating system that offers a lot of freedom.

Although it is close to Raspbian operating system, Pardus's interface is way more interesting and user friendly.

That's all !


Step 9: BONUS: YouTube Video Listener

On Pardus terminal, type this code then press 'Enter':


This opens YouTube video Listener,which is a program to listen to music videos through youtube without actually watching them. Check the video below to see what this program is.

Step 11: BONUS: Update Pardus + Enable SSH + Enable FTP + Change Password + Web Server + Screen Saver Pardus Matrix

Reboot and log in again then type this code to the main 'Settings'.

sudo pardus-ayar

Then, you can use this code to change the audio from HDMI to the 3.5 audio jack and vise versa:

sudo ses_hdmi sudo ses_kulaklik

If you want to see or edit any files or folders use this code:

sudo mc

To exit from any screen just use 'exit':


To clear the code screen use this:


If you want to act "cool" infront of your friends. You can start the Pardus-Matrix Screen Saver (press q to quit):


For the task manager use this code (press q to quit):


Listen the network with this code below:

Step 15: BONUS: How to load Arduino IDE on Pardus in order to code Arduino Mega

This option is very cool in Pardus because you don't need Windows or MAC PC to program your Arduino board. Let's download Arduino IDE first from the internet. Just open your LXTerminal, and type this code:

sudo apt-get install arduino

If password is required, use -pardus-, just like always.

After the loading is finished, you need to restart your Pardus. Go to top-right corner and click on the PardusARM logo then press Y to reboot.

After rebooting enter the desktop and go to: PardusARM start >> Elektronik >> Arduino IDE

Now, everything is set. Plug in your Arduino board into Pardus, choose the COM port number, and file >> examples >> basics >> a blinking code appears. >> Click on 'upload' to upload your codes to Arduino board.

    Merhaba,Öncelik ile bu güzel anlatım ve paylaşım için çok teşekkürler. Sizler insanlara katkıda bulunmak isterken yorumlarda da gördüğüm gibi, hata ve kusur arayan, karalayan çok insanımız var.Herkez farklı amaç için kullanım yapabilir , gereksiz yada şişirilmiş bir yazılım olmasını anlatacak platformun burası olmadığı düşünüyorum.Neyse.... Teşekkürler iyi Çalışmalar

    Karşılaştırmada hata var. PardusARM nin çıkış tarihi için pardusun çıkış tarihini yazıyorsanız, raspbian için de keza debian ın çıkış tarihini yazmalısınız. Bunlar türev işletim sistemleridir en nihayetinde. Diğer bir nokta grafik karşılaştırılması hangi kritere göre yapıldı? Kullanılan desktop managerlar neydi? Ram kullanımına göre mi iyi mesela desteklediği efekt sayısına göre mi? Ya da efektler sırasındaki fps değerine göre mi? Pardus düşmanı değilim, desteklediğim ve içinde bulunduğum bir proje. Sadece bu tip yaklaşımlar düzeltilmedikçe insanlar şişirilmiş bir yazılım olarak görmeye devam edecekler.

      İlk izlenimler açısından bir kıyaslama yapılmış olup gerçek zamanlı test sonuçları ilerleyen zamanlarda çok daha fazla veriyle detaylandırılacaktır. Eksiklerimizi görmemiz bakımından yorumunuz için teşekkür ederiz.

  • Murat

    Tamam güzel pardus denmiş arm denmiş fakat ben burada sadece adı pardus olarak değiştirilmiş debian gördüm, başlangıç logosunu değiştirip raspi-config komutunun adını pardus-ayar yaparak bu iş olur mu? Çok gereksiz geldi bana açıkçası.

    • Samm Teknoloji

      Merhaba Murat Bey, Raspbian işletim sistemi de benzer şekilde Debian\'den geliştirilmiş. Dolayısıyla iki işletim sistemi de aynı altayapıya sahiptir. İyi günler dileriz.
