If the hashsum is incorrect please just flag it out of date (also when there is no real new release, but the changed the old archive for some reason).

@ArchGalileu I have a Raspberry Pi cam working on my octoprint install... I just followed guides available on the net, e.g. the alarm wiki + octoprint information to run mjpg-streamer. The only problem I had with mjpg-streamer is that I did not get the input_raspicam plugin to work, but input_uvc works...

For your access to sudo systemctl reboot and other system commands from octoprint, check that you have a line that allows the octoprint user to run sudo commands without a password, either in /etc/sudoers or a file in /etc/sudoers.d/. Furthermore, on my fresh install the octoprint account was expired and password-locked. You don't have to unlock the password (user should not log-in), but update the account so it does not expire: chage -E -1 octoprint

anyone knows howto add the camera to octoprint? The raspberry pi camera?

Also can't solve access to "sudo systemctl restart .... or sudo systemctl reboot"

Best regards ArchGalileu

sl1pkn07: You must run it as the octoprint user, if you want to use plugin installation etc. with the included pip, the permissions get set accordingly (other have only read+execute). I have also included a systemd service that does this automatically, so the simplest way is to just start/enable that.

seems pip can't write into /opt/octorpint/lib/pythonXX/site-packages

It takes a long to compile on a raspberry pi 1 even with distcc, so here:

Yeah, but if you comment that line out you get a effectivly empty package ;) Maybe you had just a short internet disconnect while building the package? I would try a clean build again.

I'm having a strange problem with this package. When I run 'makepkg -si', the package build dies while fetching dependencies:

Processing dependencies for OctoPrint==1.3.8
Searching for frozendict<1.3,>=1.2
Download error on [Errno -3] Temporary failure in name resolution -- Some packages may not be found!
Couldn't find index page for 'frozendict' (maybe misspelled?)
Scanning index of all packages (this may take a while)
Download error on [Errno -3] Temporary failure in name resolution -- Some packages may not be found!
No local packages or working download links found for frozendict<1.3,>=1.2
error: Could not find suitable distribution for Requirement.parse('frozendict<1.3,>=1.2')
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

It was very odd to see a name resolution failure, so I went into the src directory and ran this by hand:

../../pkg/octoprint-venv/opt/octoprint-venv/bin/python2 install --optimize=1

... and it worked just fine. So, I commented this line out in PKGBUILD:

${pkgdir}/opt/$pkgname/bin/python2" install --optimize=1

and then ran makepkg -ei and the package was able to build and install.

EDIT: It did install but the octoprint binary is missing. Something is messed up.

Done, thanks tracernz. I am not bumping the pkgrel again, most will soon get it with the 1.3.9 release.

Thanks for your efforts Jake! A small note, on startup I see the following log message in the journal: Starting the server via "octoprint" is deprecated, please use "octoprint serve" from now on.

Might be a good idea to add the "serve" arg to the service file next time you're working on the package. :)

Jake commented on 2018-06-29 22:14

Sorry for causing the data loss and thanks for the notice, Remspoor. I have changed it (pkgrel=5).
