Additional information about your setup OctoPrint version 1.3.10 OctoPi version 0.15.1 Printer(s) Original Prusa MK3 MMU2 & MK2.5, Raspberry Pi 3B+ V1.3
Hello all, first post here and im having some real difficulty trying to do what i wanna do with my unit.
Back story: Purchased a new Raspberry Pi 3B+ kit with NOOBS, 7inch Element 14 touch screen. Goal was to make a 7 in touch controler for Both my Prusa printers. Having 1 pi for 2 machines was original goal with 2 octoprint servers running simultaneously.
Initially just want to have 1 printer and 1 session running as a test run on the unit first as i have a pi zero w on the mk3 already.
Tried @foosel setup guide to install octoprint with the Raspbian OS (stretch i think it was, was the full OS install from NOOBS) so that i could keep the full OS and be able to run octoprint on same unit.
Failed at that guide at the basic info stage.
Cant remember exactly what happened but i think i keep getting a mkdir not found and 1 more.
So i decided to go with an OctoPi install as, in reality, i just wanna print with it and didnt need the full OS install.
I have installed OctoPi and can access it from my desktop/laptop/tablets browser and seems to be working as normal as the addons i DL for octoprint.
My thing is i want to be able to use my 7" touch with touchUI to control my printer session.
1 Thing i have tried is to boot to GUI option in the
sudo raspi-config --> 3. Boot Options --> B1 Desktop/CLI --> B4 Desktop Auto (also tried B3 as well)
First was giving me error and stated i needed the lightdm install. so i did
sudo apt-get install and let it run its thing.
afterwards i did the reboot.
(i also have done the desktop script that shows in the CLI when it boots up as well, as well as the get updates)
each time i reboot it, its just the CLI and doesnt boot to desktop. so im confused lol. i ran the script it showed me and did the lightdm as well.
That desktop script doesnt show on my CLI anymore, and the info it shows my is my address to log into octoprint and my version numbers.
Again Octoprint does work and i can access it from my desktop, as well as SSH into my Pi using Putty so i dont think i messed up there.
After staring at my screens for past 3 days trying to figure this out hurts my head, not to mention i have no experience with linux based stuff, but have at least been able to get half of what i want to do done lol.
about ready to wipe and try reinstall fresh again in case i keep screwing something up.
if you want any other info ill do my best to get it for you, i dont know how to call up the log files from the pi though so if that is needed ill need someone to hold my hand and walk me through that part lol, sorry
