Re: Brother network printer and Pi 2

I installed CUPS today, so it should be as up to date as it could be. The distribution is from an image I downloaded last week.

Re: Brother network printer and Pi 2

Thanks for the hint...that was almost too easy. CUPS was not installed and once I did that it detected the printer on the network. I picked the top entry for the model (that was the CUPS entry) and now attempted to print a test page. The job gets created, but it immediately shows as Status "stopped"...

Brother network printer and Pi 2

The new shiny Pi 2 with noticeably more oomph than its predecessor strikes me as a really nice option for setting up a 'writing corner' in a cozy spot. All happy I loaded the Brother linux printer drivers, but of course they are compiled for i386. That brings me to two questions: A) Is there any cha...

Re: Borked up interfaces file? [partially solved]

That is how I understood ifplugd working, but after trying it thrice now I come to find that I can get both interfaces configured with a static IP, but ifplugd favoring the wired connection. If I unplug wired nothing works, the wireless does not kick in, not even on a reboot. If I reset everything a...

Thanks for the tip DirkS! That gets the wired networking back online. But with that I now run into the problem that I see an error during booting along the lines of "wpa_supplicant daemon failed to run"..."exit code 1". So I tried it without auto eth0 and that didn't make a difference. Hargs! I also...

Re: Borked up interfaces file?

Thanks for the quick response! That definitely was one of the issues. After fixing that and rebooting I was told that 'static' cannot be used together with wpa_supplicant.conf and that the only method allowed is 'manual'. So I fixed that as well and now during boot I get a green OK for configuring n...

SOLVED: Raspbian freezes up

Raspbian used to work fine for months and then (I assume) after an update (no idea which one) it froze up meaning that the GUI no longer reacted to any keyboard or mouse input. I power cycled probably too many times and eventually the OS did not boot any longer. Here is the setup that I have: - Pi v...

Re: New version of Pi. When?

One upcoming option is UDOO, a combo of 4 Pis with an Arduino. See http://www.udoo.org/ That board has 1GB of DDR3 RAM and runs Android/Linux and costs four times as much as the model A Pi. Still not powerful enough to run a fat Windows OS (RT, which is the only one for ARM). For real Windows you ne...
