How to remotely modify micro SD card

Is there a simple way to modify the octoprint program from a laptop on an installed microSD card without removing it from the Octopi board and reinstalling the entire octoprint program? I need to add a webcam

What did you already try to solve it?


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

I need to add a webcam

  • Webcam support is included with OctoPi by default. So no need to install something new.
  • You can access the OctoPi installation via SSH
  • When you pull out the SD card from the shut off Pi and insert ist later again, it starts as usual - except you did not somthing scary to it

what is SSH? Just a beginner here - sorry.
I did not activate the camera option when I set up the Octoprint download.

There is nothing to activate. Just plug in your USB WEB-Cam.
Maybe you have to make some settings.
