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


Download ....

Use this for install directions

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


next look at:

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

Remote Desktop VNC

  • vnc

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

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 makes the wifi work as well ( pi 3 )

software installed with package manager

spyder3 arduino stuff

Share Net Drive old still work

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
