Fluidd requires some basic configuration to be applied in order to function correctly. Fluidd should warn you if these are not found in your configuration upon startup.

Printer Configuration

[virtual_sdcard]

Fluidd requires your printer be setup with virtual_sdcard. This allows file uploads to work correctly. If you get a geodes path not found error in Fluidd this is generally the first place to look.

[virtual_sdcard]
path: ~/gcode_files

[display_status]

Required to properly support display updates in fluidd- with no other lines required.

[display_status]

[pause_resume]

Enables Pause / Resume functionality within klipper. This is a single block, with no other lines required.

[pause_resume]

Macros

These can be assumed sane defaults, but should be checked and modified to your own needs.

PAUSE
