Re: Installing HP LaserJet P1005

Rasbian Stretch, install HPLIP from repository not from the website: sudo apt update sudo apt install hplip I've just tried this, and received a message to say that it's already installed. The correct syntax for adding a user is: sudo usermod -a -G lpadmin pi http://www.penguintutor.com/linux/print...

Re: Installing HP LaserJet P1005

I have a pretty old HP Laserjet P1005 printer. I had this working on an older Raspberry Pi, and even managed to set-up Google Cloud Print and AirPrint, which was incredible handy. It took a lot of messing around though to get the printer even working locally, and I'm not sure which of the guides th...

Re: USB networking for secure file sharing

For the Pi Zero and Zero W there is the Ethernet Hub and USB Hub w/ Micro USB OTG Connector . I would expect that SSH and SFTP should be sufficient for most people unless one does not want to use a wireless network. But using that prevent the pi working as a USB gadget so doesn't fit the OP's requi...

Totally ludicrous idea, the RPi is a Small Board Computer, not an add-on. It's not totally ludicrous.
