I just managed to get APM Planner RC2 running on my Raspberry Pi. I have not tested connecting to an APM yet but clicking around in the interface is much more responsive than i ever thought it would be.

Here are a brief instruction:

Install the required packages:
sudo apt-get install phonon libqt4-dev \ libphonon-dev libphonon4 phonon-backend-gstreamer \ qtcreator libsdl1.2-dev libflite1 flite1-dev build-essential \ libopenscenegraph-dev libssl-dev

Clone the repository in your workspace:
cd ~/workspace git clone https://github.com/diydrones/apm_planner

Build APM Planner:
cd ~/workspace/apm_planner qmake-qt4 qgroundcontrol.pro

Run APM Planner:

Hi ! I am new in Raspberry, and I can not install APM,  can someone make an image the SD card vs installed APM?

Thank you so much! I did it! Ubuntu Linux version 15.10 I didn't do permanent installation though, as instructed here: https://github.com/RestlessC0bra/apm_planner I don't know what these values for x and y are supposed to be. If anyone could kindly explain it'd be nice. I managed to do "permanent installation" 5b) though, but an APM Planner icon didn't show up on the sidebar, so i'm guessing that's not so permanent.
