octopi, and printerbot

this shouldn’t be too involved right?
Download octopi 
use the standard

sudo dd if=2015-05-05-octopi-wheezy-0.12.0.img of=/dev/disk2 bs=1m

plug everything in


instructions you ask.. heh, we’ll see how the above goes.

edit 1:
So it was basically that easy, So far.. had to play with the wifi configs to get that working (will really vary by adapter, but my changes are below)

#auto wlan0
#allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet manual
wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
iface default inet manual



I got some weirdness at first because both my SSID and key have spaces in them.. well, I THOUGHT that was the problem.. then I copy pasta’d them both again and found out that in fact I was the problem..
On to the printer, which is not currently playing nice.

edit2: have you turned it off and on again? yeah.. that made the printer work..


the latest update to octopi(octoprint) seems to have decided to rename the usb port. Probably an affect of not disconnecting before pressing UPDATE ME NAOW! easy enough fix though, unplug power from the printrbot plug back in, and restart octoprint (Not the pi, just the octoprint service) bing bang, all set and fixed
