I am using my beaglebone black to run Octoprint for my printer. Its a new RevC with the MachineKit Image from elinux.org and I followed the basic raspbian install instructions for getting OctoPrint installed which worked fine. I also installed X11vnc and mjpg-streamer. All of these work fine with started manually over ssh. The issue cosmes when I try to get any of these services to autostart on boot.
for Octoprint followed these instructions:
Automatic start up
Copy the script files to their respective folders and make the init script executable:
sudo cp scripts/octoprint.init /etc/init.d/octoprint sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/octoprint sudo cp scripts/octoprint.default /etc/default/octoprint
Then add the script to autostart using
sudo update-rc.d octoprint defaults.
I also tried running this:
cat > ~/run-octoprint <<EOT
chmod +x ~/run-octoprint
- Add the following to /etc/rc.local
#run octoprint as octo user
( su -c /home/octo/run-octoprint octo ) &
For x11vnc I installed through apt-get and added another script to init.d for vnc to start the server, as well as trying to add to rc.local and setting up a .conf script in init.
and I never got to mjpg-streamer.
anyone have any ideas.
