Has anyone has success with Astroprint on a Raspberry Pi 4? I tried with no luck, just experimenting so no problem, just curious.
We don’t yet have a date for Rpi4 support
Thanks for the reply. I didn’t realize that the Pi 4 has differences that make in incompatible with Pi3 programs, until I started experimenting with it.
I got Astrobox Touch working on my Pi 4, but it’s not an easy ride and I don’t recommend it. Wait until Daniel and co have an official image.
Thanks for the update. I’ll be honest, I was just experimenting - not sure what advantage the Pi 4 would provide. I have been very happy with the way ASTROPRINT works on the 3.
For me the advantage is having the Astrobox Touch do other things, in my case since the Pi 4 is way more powerful than needed I have it running a 6-camera Zoneminder setup (recording to a NAS) and a Squid proxy.
I’ve repurposed my Pi 3 to manage my Prusa MK3S running Octoprint because I need to be able to “Print from SD” to take advantage of Power Panic but Astro doesn’t support Print from SD
Ran into the same problem, could you document the steps you took to allow ABT to run on the Pi 4?
I am running it as a plugin for octoprint on my pi 4 rn.
I could, but I wouldn’t recommend doing it - you can’t upgrade ABT so you get stuck with an old version unless you have a 2nd SD card with ABT on it and upgrade that one, then copy all of the ABT directories over to the Pi 4 card.
Here’s an experimental image for the RPi4. A couple of things:
- This is for ABG only!! Do not flash this on an ABT
- Let us know what you find.
Thanks for the update, but I have switched to Octoprint.
As of today with image 0.17(4), the pi 4 is supported.
