Hello to who is reading this, I hope you will be able to explain this to me. I have a printer Ender 2 pretty cool so far!
#Running Rasbian Stretch Installed the OctoPrint server as per instructions;
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev python-setuptools python-virtualenv git libyaml-dev build-essential git clone
https://github.com/foosel/OctoPrint.git cd OctoPrint virtualenv venv
./venv/bin/pip install pip --upgrade
./venv/bin/python setup.py install
sudo usermod -a -G tty pi
sudo usermod -a -G dialout pi
You should then be able to start the OctoPrint server: pi@raspberrypi ~ $
~/OctoPrint/venv/bin/octoprint serve * Running on http://0.0.0.0:5000/
# Works OK so far In my learning curve I also installed OctoPrint directly onto the Pi, seemed more problems to do that.
Also the server app started right up on the first shot the two times I installed it where the other didn't. so I ran with this direction.
# I use the VNC viewer through my Netbook. Hard wired (Local) the Pi and my netbook. Each have wireless connections to the internet through the wifi router. As I was learning this connected through the wifi router (in the beginning) it wasn't stable enough dropping off a lot (Older Router) I wanted guaranteed connection so I enabled my local connection and plugged it in.
Wireless>>> 192.168.1.1 Gateway Router
1.149 Pi 1.159 Netbook
1.255 Not sure
Local >>>> 169.254.53.79 Netbook connected local to
169.254.247.63 Pi OctoPrint
Server address is 0.0.0.0:5000
Time Lapse is located at, 127.0.0.1:8080/?action=snapshot
169.254.247.63:8080/?action=snapshot (shared to the 127.0.0.1 address)
So the deal is the printer comes with a cat already sliced into the g-code needed to make it. I have made several, and it's pretty cool fun to watch but I have projects I want to make but they are in .stl The issue is there are no instructions (Clear to follow and understand) as to how to install/use/configure/setup the CURA that is (or isn't) installed in the OctoPrint. I go to the wrench follow down to the Plugin CURA 15.04 that I believe is installed as I see it there, I can find empty Folders in the file manager under CURA I can find LOTS of information on EVERYTHING BUT using 15.04 in the OctoPrint App. where is the path? Path to what folder or is it a file? be the path? One instructions was pretty clear, "if file doesn't exist just make it" well DUH how do you do that? Zip nothing, two weeks cannot find one thread that has simple to follow instructions that give click by click field by field entries that will allow me to use to learn how to slice within the OctoPrint. I was smart enough to follow the directions to get the Raspberry running, OctoPrint installed and printing, I can read and understand the english language but none of anything I am reading works let alone make sense. Can you help? I'm tired of the CAT I want to move on and make other things but can't due to lack of understanding or the lack of decent instructions that are to the point, step by step. Click here, enter this, do next, simple simple simple and explain what to do if you have to do it, like "just make it" explain how with the description, not have to jump to 5 different subjects to get to to understand "Oh click on that too enter " thanks in advance, very frustrated so much of a curve to get to do what seems like a simple thing. Add to all of this (almost forgot) that I did try this>>>
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ pip install "https://github.com/kennethjiang/OctoPrint-Slicer/archive/master.zip"
\ 1.6MB 472kB/s
Complete output from command python setup.py egg_info:
Could not import OctoPrint's setuptools, are you sure you are running that under the same python installation that OctoPrint is installed under?
Command "python setup.py egg_info" failed with error code 255 in /tmp/pip-eFqAnu-build/
That is what I get and I cannot find any instructions I can follow PLEASE HELP!!!!!
