I finally got Octoprint running with klipper and everything set up after nothing went as planned. I then tried to install the piTFT 70 from BTT. the screen boots up a showed an SSH screen, but wouldn't show anything else. not sure where to go I tried the desktop which worked, but wasn't what I wanted. I removed it with "sudo apt purge xserver* lightdm* raspberrypi-ui-mods". Now I'm unable to open the octoprint web server.
I don't know anything about coding so this has all been feeling my way through with tutorials I can find online.
What did you already try to solve it?
My thought was to try to reinstall octoprint, but checking the pi with a ftp, everything seems to be there.
Have you tried running in safe mode?
Tried but it's only coming back with "command not found", I expect I'm missing something
Again, only getting "command not found" when trying
Additional information about your setup
Printer is a Voron, Octoprint version 1.9.1, Octopi version 0.18.0, browser firefox on Windows
in the first line you copied the $ from the example - that doesn't belong there. Then you should replace file with the actual filname.
Same for the second line.
The next two lines are ok, then you just entered a path without any command. If you want to read the file in a tui texteditor your can put nano in front of it.
Next line does the same thing, but with admin privileges.
And then just a filename without any command.
That's the reason why you got command not found - either there was no command or you put a $ in front of it
Don't worry. Most of us learned the shell commands by ourselves and we didn't know what to do either the first time.
Now let me tell you how you get the logs.
The easy method is to just go to http://octopi.local/recovery and download the systeminfo bundle zip from there. But if that doesn't work you can also create it in the terminal:
Just enter ~/oprint/bin/octoprint systeminfo . (the dot is important) in ssh.
Now download WinSCP, connect to the pi with the same ip/hostname and credentials you used before for the ssh connection.
WinSCP is a file explorer and lets you download the systeminfo bundle you created with the command above.
And the last step is to upload the bundle here so we can look at it
It seems that I've run out of space after the desktop install. Could the space be the issue, despite trying to remove it?
Short of clearing the Pi and starting over, is there a good way to filter stuff out that's unnecessary? Or a good way to find the large files to eliminate the biggest files I don't need? It hasn't been used for anything before the printer, so the only thing I can imagine filling it to the brim is the desktop install.
The card is an 8 gb. This is a brand new build, but I have had the Pi 4 B for a couple years, just haven't used it until now. If I replace the 8gb with a bigger card, like a 64gb, will that solve the memory issue? I assumed it ran more like a pc with the OS running on the built in memory, rather than the the expandable memory.
I've swapped to a 64gb, not sure if I can just transfer the files from the previous SD or if I have to go through the entire process again. I've also managed to get the logs, I think. based on the last date it recorded anything, I know that was the day I first started trying to install the Pi TFT70 from BTT. I followed Modbots install instructions from the link below:
"BIGTREETECH PI TFT50 Octoprint Touchscreen Install & First Look - YouTube"
I've attached the logs. Please let me know what I can try
I've been thinking that as well. I tried reflashing a new 64 gb cardwith the pi image, its giving me the same
" The OctoPrint server is currently not running"
If there's no storage on the Pi itself, this step should be straight forward, but it's still not working. Any ideas? Have I somehow corrupted the Pi entirely or something?
I'm wondering if one of the plugins I installed is causing the problem, but I'm not getting any response from my attempts to initiate safemode as I have to do it through SSH, which I have no understanding of. I've tried following the safemode instructions on octoprint's website, but I think it assumes I know more about the console then I do.
Did you get that right after flashing the new image or after you tried to install the screen?
I think I see why the screen isn't working as expected - your guide and the whole OctoBTT installation are 2 years old and meant for on older version of the OS.
Think of it as an guide for Windows 7 and you're running windows 10.
But don't worry the screen uses the dsi connector so there shouldn't be an issue to get it working.
I can't really help you with the screen since I don't have one to test it.
It should be basically plug and play with the latest OctoPi image.
I would recommend to use this as display "software".
I hope someone else with a screen can help you out with the details.
Yeah one of those are probably the issue. We need a current systeminfo bundle so we can tell for sure.
The log from 6 hours ago is 10 days old (at least the last log entry is).
