How to install PyGame in the RaspberryPi

Hello everybody, I found out that a lot of people has trouble trying to install the PyGame because of the dependencies.

So here is a few commands to help you to do so.

$ sudo apt-get install mercurial 
$ hg clone
$ cd pygame
$ sudo apt-get install libsdl-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev 
$ sudo apt-get install libsmpeg-dev libportmidi-dev libavformat-dev libswscale-dev
$ sudo apt-get install python3-dev python3-numpy
$ python3 build 
$ sudo python3 install

All this process should take a while:

RaspberryPi 1 B+ around 1 hour
RaspberryPi 2 B+ around 25 minutes

If you have any problem doing the process, feel free to contact me at twitter: @gabrielpires or e-mail eu at
