Computers like Raspberry Pi (RPi) can be connected to a network – to provide them an access to the Internet or connect to them remotely. This article describes how network connections can be configured on RPi with Ubuntu Mate 15.10 with GUI tools and in terminal mode.
Major advantage of such tiny computers as Raspberry Pi (RPi) is ability to work on small autonomous platforms like mobile robots. However computer, moving with a robot, is a challenge as well – during development it is not easy to change the code. Remote connection to the computer via SSH or VNC, using Wi-Fi, might help in such cases.
OctoPrint is a server controlling a 3D-printer over web-interface, running on the small computer like Raspberry Pi or PCDuino with Linux OS. This article describes how to setup OctoPrint on Raspberry Pi 2 with Ubuntu OS. Read another article to setup OctoPrint on PCDuino.
Raspberry Pi 2 has ARMv7-based CPU on-board – this allows to run Ubuntu directly on this small computer. Ubuntu has plenty of features in compare to special editions of Linux distributives for such small devices and therefore less limitations with installing specific programs and components on it.
