# [✓] Install packages on MMA 11.2 on the Raspberry Pi?

GROUPS:
 Hello, I am missing the menu-item "Install" here on MMA 11.2 on the Raspberry. I am trying to use a 'package' I've downloaded, its readme says Under File > Install... , choose package and input the path to the package you just downloaded. Also the help here says the same. But the menupoint "Install" is completely missing here. Is it a difference in the Raspberry-version of MMA? How do I use this package now, is it still possible at all? Many thanks already.

 Szabolcs Horvát 1 Vote Packages need to placed in the directory returned by FileNameJoin[{\$UserBaseDirectory, "Applications"}]. If you got a zip file, you will need to extract it first.Generally, packages come with installation instructions. You should follow those instructions instead of using File -> Install, which will mess things up unless the package was specifically designed to be installed this way.
