Re: RasPi as a print server (without Linux drivers)

Thanks for your reply. How exactly would that work?


I found the cups driver source code that is supposed to work for my printer. How could I get that to work now?

RasPi as a print server (without Linux drivers)

Hello Community! I want to setup my Raspi as a wifi printer server. I own a Brother DCP 357c printer I would like to keep using for that purpose. The main problem: Brother does not offer ARM-drivers and I can not install the printer on Raspian for example by using CUPS. Is it somehow possible to cre...

Re: Change GPIO on poweroff

Thanks you for the quick responses. :) How could such a hardware-delay solution look like?
What exactly is the purpose of that GPIO overlay?

Change GPIO on poweroff

Hello everyone, I am running Openelec 6.0 on a Raspi2.0. I'm trying to extend the features of my Raspi to make it able to completely turn off itself. I have created a special PSU that offers the opportunity to cut the power supply when toggling a transistor. All I need to do now is to tell my Raspi ...

Code: Select all

Re: Powering via GPIO

I do worry about current. Micro-USB plugs are rated for no more than 1.5A and the tracking on the PCB will almost certainly not be suitable for anything over 1A or so.
