Testing av OctoPrint.

Manual installation

Setup a SD card

Download Raspbian Lite (currently Raspbian Buster Lite[1]) and put onto a SD card (or microSD card if that is what your Raspberry Pi requires).

Before putting the SD card into the Pi, do the following changes

  • allow ssh by creating a file named 'ssh' on the boot partition (cd to mountpoint of boot partition, then do touch ssh)
  • mount the rootfs partition and change the hostname (default is raspberrypi) by editing the files etc/hostname and etc/hosts (only the line with the same name ('raspberrypi')on that partition. The name will show up on the network as hostname.local, so use hostname-print for example (shows up on the network as hostname-print.local). If you mount it on a machine running Linux, you can use sudo vi etc/hostname, and sudo nano etc/hosts to edit the files.

Initial setup

Insert the SD card into your Pi, connect it to a network and power it up. From your machine, you can find out when the machine is available on the network with Wikipedia:ping (networking utility), example ping hostname-print.local.

ssh into the machine (ssh pi@hostname-print.local) withnthe default user and password.

  1. change the password: passwd
  2. check if the user is a member of the required groups, if not, add it. sudo usermod -a -G tty pi, sudo usermod -a -G dialout pi.
