Unfortunately there’s no Debian release — see this issue for some information about that. However, if you’re willing to compile from source, there is a process for doing so on Debian-based distributions. I don’t know how comfortable you are doing that sort of thing, but this was my process on Ubuntu:
$ mkdir ~/wherever/you/want/it/to/go && cd "$_"
$ git clone https://github.com/samaaron/sonic-pi.git
$ git reset --hard 06b9586
$ cd sonic-pi/app/gui/qt/
git reset --hard 06b9586 part is important because that commit is the last time that this worked without messing with other dependencies (see this issue for more information). Assuming this compiles correctly, you then would have to add the
app/gui/qt directory to your
$PATH to be able to launch Sonic Pi. The headless server resides at
Let me know if you have questions — I know that can be a bit overwhelming if you’re unfamiliar (apologies if you’re actually super comfortable, I just want to try and help you get this to work). I’m interested if that works since I’m starting work on packaging 3.0.1 for Ubuntu and hearing from a Debian user would be great.
