Re: Using Rapsberry Pi to make a wired printer wireless

I had a quick look at the debian forums.

Could only see one issue with your printer and its like yours. i.e. not printing.
Sadly it looks like it's not 100% supported.

Re: Using the pi 3 as NAS

You "might" get away with a powered USB hub depending on the power supply. Something like this : https://www.amazon.co.uk/Atolla-Powered-Splitter-Switches-Charging/dp/B071QZ5D7L You would need a few SATA to USB "Y" cables (unless you are buying caddies for the drives) so a few of these : https://www...

Re: Using Rapsberry Pi to make a wired printer wireless

Hmm.. Sorry to say I'm stumped.

Hope someone else can chip in with somethings to try!...

Only thing i can think of is if you have an option to pick "ipp://" for the printer connection in the Cups admin pages.

try :

Code: Select all

 lp -d HP_LaserJet_P1006 ~/.profile
and

do they print anything out?
or do you get errors?

what did you type to get that error?
What does it say when you type in "lpstat -s -H" (it's lowercase LPstat) ?
Can you copy paste the output.

Re: Using Rapsberry Pi to make a wired printer wireless

Did you select the correct printer model number? Try this SSH into the rpi and type : lpstat -s -H that should tell you if CUPS is running correctly and any printers it can see. For me it looks like this : no system default destination device for HP-Photosmart-5520-series: ipp://HP28924A047461.local...

Re: Can't create wifi connection in Raspbian

Are you using the sudo command to open the editor?
If not then the files won't be saved when you try and close the file.

e.g. you should run :

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
and "ctrl + x" to close nano (say yes to saving changes!).

Re: What power brick is recommended for a Raspberry Pi zero

Currently running a headless rpi0w as a mail server running off of the USB socket at the back of my "BT HH6" Router.

So depending on what you want to do, if it does not require any extra peripherals, then any USB socket providing 500mA will do the trick.

So, I would suggest that the way it should work is that there is no default password, but when the user enables ssh (via any of the 3 supported methods), they are then forced to choose a password. One idea is that if they enable ssh via the dropping a file /boot method, the contents of that file wo...
