I got a Raspberry Pi to set up and use Octoprint. Hit a snag In the set up. I would have went to the Rasspberry Pi forum to post this but I wonder if they might not know about Octoprint set up issues. So here I am. Hopefully I won’t get booted out of here. Hope you guys can help. Thanks.
I have the Octopi image written to the SD card and installed on the RPi. The RPI boots up normally, but I have not booted to the GUI only to the black dos text looking screen. Where I am stuck is going on to my PC and typing in my browser (Firefox) Octopi.local to connect the RPI to the network. I get a page or address not found error in my browser. Now I forget exactly what it said. But basically I can not log onto the Octopi on line interface.
This is the video I’m using for instruction. http://youtu.be/EHzN_MwunmE
At first I did not realize the printer (Taz 5 ) was suppose to be plugged in. Tom did not instruct to do so. So I shut down the RPi and plugged the printers cable in, turned on the printer, and the rebooted the RPi. Same results can not log into the Octoprint web interface.
In the set up I did not set up wifi I want to set up the RPi via wired connection.
The RPi dose not show up on my computers network? Shouldn’t it be there?
Am I suppose to be booted up to the GUI on the RPi?
