#RaspberryPi – Install raspi-config on Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS

Hi !

This is my current Ubuntu version running on a Raspberry Pi 4.

raspi-config is a powerful tool to manage the device settings for the Raspberry Pi. It’s included in Raspberry Pi OS, but not in the Ubuntu distro. So, if yu want to use raspi-config, follow these steps

Of course, we start with an Ubuntu image:

ubuntu images in raspberry pi imager

And in single step, let’s update and install raspi-config

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install raspi-config

And now we can run raspi-config (in sudo mode)

sudo raspi-config
raspi config running in Ubuntu

I really like to use this to

  • change my host name
  • expand my filesystem
  • configure the wireless network
  • update the OS
  • etc


If apt-get install does not find raspi-config we need to add the debian repository to the source list

echo "deb http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/ buster main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the Key

apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 7FA3303E

Super easy !

Happy coding!
