Ok, now I looked into the building instructions. Where do you have this autogen.sh thing from? ;) On the brlaser page it says

Re: Brother HL-L2300D Printer on Pi

If you have a GUI installed on your Raspi, you can just use the file manager and check where the files are located. Otherwise, you can view the contents of any folder with ls -l /path/to/your/folder or just ls if it is the current folder. You can then jump to any folder with cd /path/to/your/folder ...

Re: Brother HL-L2300D Printer on Pi

Two things: 1. /path/to is also just a placeholder. It could be something like your home folder /home/pi or /home/joshlicht or just ~/ as shorthand notation. It could be also your desktop folder, ~/Desktop. Or any other folder - you have to know where exactly you extracted the zip file. 2. You need ...

Well, as usual, via

cd /path/to/extracted_folder
Most probably the folder is somewhere in your home folder, so it would be

cd ~/extracted_folder
Of course "extracted_folder" is just a placeholder, you need to find out its name, most probably it is starting with "brother...".

I can try to dig them out but why don't you use the easier solution mentioned in the first line:
I got a reply from Brother's tech support. The automatic power off can be switched on and off by opening the front cover and pressing the Go button for 4 seconds.

Thanks, I will try this option then! As far as I understood, the difference is that in one case there is one coil for each voltage setting, so the setting switches between different coils, while in the other case there is only one coil and the setting moves a contact so a different fraction of the c...

Hello community! I have a weird problem. I am using a Raspberry Pi B+ and an external hard disk (actually a former internal hard disk in a box).

Re: NFS mount takes up to 10 seconds

"No effect" is vague. Do you still see a delay and blank screen?
Do you get the mount when you cd into the path?
Do you get a mount when you "sudo mount -t nfs ...." manually?
Yes, yes, I don't have to, since the share is already mounted.

Re: NFS mount takes up to 10 seconds

Sorry for the late reply. It looks like the location of the mount point doesn't matter. I changed it to /home/USER/Raspi and the black screen was still there. I checked in Thunar and the mount was already there. So the test seems to give no result.

Re: NFS mount takes up to 10 seconds

So instead why not temporarily modify the mountpoint so that the Pi boots in full without accessing it, then enter that path and see how long the system takes to respond? You mean, enter a wrong path in the share? Like, in the fstab of the client put 192.168.2.104:/wrong/path /media/Raspi nfs defau...

Well, the second problem is not that bad in the end. In Thunar there is a possibility to hide entries from the devices list.
