MagicMirror on Pi Zero W
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.
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!
@rootsudo Thank you!
This along with post number 23 got my Pi Zero and Pi zero W working perfectly :)
- Place wpa_supplicant.conf in Boot folder of SD card
- Boot SD card and login
- Enable SSH: sudo raspi-config -> Select Interfacing Options -> select SSH -> select Enable -> select Finish
After step 4 i recommend creating an empty file called “ssh” and also put it in the Boot folder of the SD card.
So you don’t have to do step 6, cause ssh is started on boot with the default credentials (user: pi, password: raspberry)
After boot, it did not open the browser, instead it just showed the console window.
Problem was solved by installing x-server with
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg
