Installing Discord On Raspberry Pi

Tue Apr 04, 2017 11:43 pm

Hello,

A very popular chatting app, called Discord has been lauched for over two years now. They also have a linux file. I've tried several times to install it on my pi. Has anyone been able to successfully install it? If so can you please provide the steps. Thank you!

On the downloads page it states 64bit Linux, which is x86-64 CPU

The Raspberry Pi has an ARM CPU, so not surprising incompatible.

guessing its the modules for audio that needed to be executed on X86..

Java never works everywhere. Despite what they advertise.

next86,

Sorry, you said "JavaScript", I read "Java".

From your link: https://www.reddit.com/r/discordapp/com ... f_discord/ we can read that it is indeed written in Javascript.

We also read that it uses Electron as it run time engine. https://electron.atom.io/

Electron is the Google browser HTML and JavaScript engine being used for display and user input coupled with node.js for interaction with the operating system. Basically a way to create desktop applications using web technologies.

So, before Discord will run there needs to be an Electron that runs on the Pi.

So far the only nice way to do that I have found is via the services of resin.io.

I'm pretty sure whatever downloads Discord have include Electron built for x86.

Actually, it is possible. Twister OS which is based on Raspberry Pi OS, actually has it pre-installed! so there MUST be a way. I also don't know. It does not use stuff such as Box86. If you want to install it right now, post this into terminal : curl -sSL https://git.io/JfAPE | bash it will install pi-kiss. then open it. navigate to the internet section and you will find discord click enter on discord. it will install discord and then it will show pres any key to exit. then open discord. always first it opens terminal and starts to emulate it. then after 10-20 sec it will open discord and ask you to sign in.

It worked for me and should work on any pi. Hope it helped you. If not, just use the web version. type discord.com, click on Login and login.. It wil open discord.

It's under the Internet category. Are you on a 32-bit OS or on a 64-bit OS?
