MagicMirror on Pi Zero W



  • @Iseknutz I use ssh and nano. I also am a Mac user.

    I’m glad it’s working

    What do you mean by “after the Update to the actual OS”? I used the image linked above. I can’t do an update/upgrade as I have no internet connection. I’m using the console on the Pi and editing my conf in Mint Linux. I’m using Jessie Lite rather than the full install.

    @CaptnJB
    Thanks for the rewrite on the wpa_supplicant, but it still won’t connect to any provided wifi network.

    Thanks to all.



  • @kylelmartin I have connected an USB Wlan Dongle (Edimax, working without extra software) and do the update. Im using Jessie Lite and later I installed the desktop.
    Sorry for my bad english ;)

    Greetings from Toulouse. To do the update and upgrade, from the terminal type:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    After the installation of the new updated packages, sudo shutdown. Wait. Remove the power and your edimax adapter and connect power. Now does it work?

    Silly me! I should have known that to get a wifi adapter to work I needed a wifi adapter!
    Fortunately I had a usb splitter with power supply and an edimax wifi lying around.

    After the update and upgrade its working well.
    Your help was greatly appreciated.
    Thanks from Texas!
