(Fedora / CentOS) Install requirements with

yum install python3-devel python3-pip python3-distutils

(Raspbian and maybe other ARM based distro)

thnx to @inquilino for the fixes/updates

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev python3-dev python3-libxml2 python3-lxml unrar-free ffmpeg libatlas-base-dev
  1. Upgrade Python to version 3.7 or greater.
  2. Download latest release of Bazarr here
  3. Extract the content of the zipped release to the previously created bazarr directory
  4. Install Python requirements using:

    python3 -m pip install -r requirements.txt


    (Raspbian) Don't worry about lxml not being installed at this step, you have installed the module through apt-get anyway.

    Older Raspberry Pi (ARMv6)

    On ARMv6 devices (e.g. older Raspberry Pis, find out with uname -m), numpy installed from pip might contain instruction set that is not compatible with the architecture (Ref). The solution is to replace it with the version from apt repository:

    python3 -m pip uninstall numpy
    sudo apt-get install python3-numpy
  5. Change ownership to your preferred user for running programs (replace both instances of $user)

    sudo chown -R $user:$user /opt/bazarr
  6. You can now start bazarr using the following command:

  7. Open your browser and go to http://localhost:6767/

Please see the autostart page for systemd/upstart configuration instructions.
