Welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy your time here.

Thanks for giving EndeavourOS on RPi4 a try. Looks like you installed it more like the Arch Linux way than the EndeavourOS way. Which is great since you ended up with a working system. That is all that matters.

The EndeavourOS way is a two step process.

1 Install the Archlinux Arm base image. One can accomplish this by going to

and following the instructions in the One can also go to
and follow similar instructions there.
This will need to be done on a working linux computer with a uSD in a USB reader to recieve the image.

After the base image is installed, the uSD card will be removed from the working Linux computer and placed in the RPi 4 for the second step. Installing an EndeavourOS with your choice of DM or WM.

2 Install EndeavourOS. This can be accomplished by going to

or by going to
for instructions to install EndeavourOS with DE or WM

If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask here on the forum.

thanks for your good and kind advices .

of course i read several times .

now i run endeavourOS on raspberry pi 4
one is raspberry pi 4 with 4GB memory by micro SD card ( by the arch linux method that you pointed)

another one is raspberry pi 4 with 2GB memory by USB harddisk only (endevour method)

1st i installed manjaro to raspberry pi 4 with 2GB memory by USB harddisk only .
but this KDE plasma is very hard to controll (install itself is easy )



If you are comfortable with CLI on the Terminal here are instructions for installing a 64 bit OS on the RPi 4b in case you might be interested.
