Decided time to switch to new os and Python 3, this is more or less a log


[edit] Download ....

Use this for install directions

said use etcher so that is what I plan to do.

[edit] Setup

next look at:

  • look at preferences from menu and enable vnc
  • in preferences set the localization to yours

[edit] Update

  • Before installing new application or service in Raspbian, make sure to always type this into terminal: ( if this file is on your PI use cut and paste ) This takes awhile ( perhaps an hour? )
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

You many find the following of use as well Linux Commands On Pi

[edit] Remote Desktop VNC

  • vnc

Default login. Username: pi. Password: raspberry. So, type pi, enter, raspberry, enter.

[edit] Static Ip Address

sudo leafpad /etc/dhcpcd.conf

Scroll all the way to the bottom of the file and add one, or both of the following snippets. Depending on whether you want to set a static IP address for a wired connection or a wireless connection eth0 = wired, wlan0 = wireless. You’ll need to edit the numbers in the snippet so they match your network configuration.

  • interface = This defines which network interface you are setting the configuration for.
  • static ip_address = This is the IP address that you want to set your device to. (Make sure you leave the /24 at the end)
  • static routers = This is the IP address of your gateway (probably the IP address or your router)
  • static domain_name_servers = This is the IP address of your DNS (probably the IP address of your router). You can add multiple IP addresses here separated with a single space.
  • my next Raspberry Pi 182/183 I just pasted this into the bottom of the file

interface eth0

static ip_address=
static routers=
static domain_name_servers=

interface wlan0

static ip_address=
static routers=
static domain_name_servers=

then sudo reboot to try it out - ivp 6 may be a good addition to look into

this does part of wifi, but need more

[edit] finish get wifi working

[edit] software installed with package manager

spyder3 arduino stuff

[edit] Share Net Drive

which samba	             

did not show samba but

sudo apt-get install samba

showed it was there -- not this time it did a big install ?? did it remove and install, the mysteries continue

>>> create mount point

sudo mkdir /mnt/share1

this gave read access

sudo mount -t  cifs -o guest  // /mnt/share1

read write with this

sudo mount -t cifs -o username="russ",password="passwordhere",workgroup="MSHOME",file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,nobrl //  /mnt/share1

[edit] Make automatic with fstab


2.2 Password Protected Share sudo mount -t cifs -o username=yourusername,password=yourpassword //WindowsPC/share1 /mnt/mountfoldername 3. Now to check that its mounted , run the following command $ df -h

[edit] using fstab

  1. using fstab this will let you auto mount

for nano ctrl O writes a file

sudo leafpad /etc/fstab
sudo nano    /etc/fstab            

note that fstab may be hidden file >> // /mnt/share1 cifs user=russ,pass=<password_notin_quotes??>,_netdev 0,0


this looks good for stab


 # For Guest Login
     //WindowsPC/Share1 /mnt/mountfoldername cifs guest 0 0

For Password Protected Login //WindowsPC/Share1 /mnt/mountfoldername cifs username=yourusername,password=yourpassword 0 0

// /mnt/share1 cifs user=russ,pass=squeak13,_netdev 0,0

If you make a new entry in fstab it will not auto-mount. Therefore you must reload / refresh the entries. A reboot will do this but that is not a friendly way to do it. A quick way to reload new entries in /etc/fstab (fstab) is to use the mount command:

mount -a
