Accessing the Pi environment

What is the problem?

Loaded Python 3. Loaded firmware updater. Updater fails after configured. Says /usr/bin/avrdude does not exist. So I forgot how to access the pi (SSH??) what do I need? New computer, so any programs I used before for this are not loaded. This is a serious brainfart on my part.

What did you already try to solve it?

Don't remember where to start.

Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?


Systeminfo Bundle

You can download this in OctoPrint's System Information dialog ... no bundle, no support!)


Additional information about your setup

OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, printer, firmware, browser, operating system, ... as much data as possible


First, most important question - what OS is your new computer.

The internet has a lot of guides of 'how to use SSH to access an RPi' you could use, and it's built into most OSes now, using ssh pi@ipAddress command.

windows 11

I assuming that You remember login and password.

Hi again,
I figured out that I can get into the raspberry environment with putty. I have logged in and have searched thru all the directories looking for the /usr/bin/avrdude path. I does not exist. This is on another Rip that I have. Its been working fine until I reimaged my Rip to have Python 3 on it. Again, I loaded the addon for the firmware updater, using the same parameters I used before and what is documented on the firmware information page. This second Rip has the same issue when configuring the FW addon. Any ideas?
Thanks in Advance!

You have to install avrdude, it doesn't come pre-installed.
