The 4th update of Sparky 6 – 6.4 is out.

– Firefox (103.0.2 & 102.1.0esr Mozilla builds can be installed from Sparky repos as the ‘firefox-sparky’ and ‘firefox-esr-sparky’ packages, but they use a new user profile, so your bookmarks, passwords, settings have to be synchronized from the Mozilla account)

System reinstallation is not required; if you have Sparky 6.x installed, simply make full system upgrade:



sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade

or via the System Upgrade tool.

Sparky 6 is available in the following flavours:
– amd64: LXQt, KDE Plasma, Xfce, MinimalGUI (Openbox) & MinimalCLI (text mode)
– i686: LXQt, MinimalGUI (Openbox) & MinimalCLI (text mode)
– armhf: Openbox & CLI (text mode)

PC user:password – live:live

As the Rasperry Pi OS uses a user changer at the first boot, make sure Sparky ARM does not.
ARM user:password – pi:sparky

New live/install media of the stable line can be downloaded from the download/stable page.

Next Sparky iso images of the stable line 6.5 will be published in the middle of November.

  1. me gustaria que en aptus este el comando upgrade o que el gestor de actualizaciones notifique que hay una nueva actualizacion de base disponible para el sistema, ya que aunque fue muy rapido y sencillo actualizar la base(upgrade),no me di cuenta hasta dos meses despues que estaba disponible la actualizacion de base ya que el gestor de actualizaciones no me alerto de este tipo de actualizacion,me entere solo por que hoy visite la pagina para ver la verion con lxqt
