Flash

Flashing your SDCard is the same process as any other Raspbian image.

  1. Quality of SDCard matters. Recommend using known, reputable brands such as Sandisk, Samsung and Kingston.
  2. The flashing process will WIPE YOUR SDCARD. Be sure you have no existing data you’d like to keep from it.

For windows users, the recommended tool for flashing is Balena Etcher.

For macOs users, the recommended tool for flashing is Raspberry Pi Imager.

Configure

  1. Configure the WiFI connection by editing fluiddpi-wpa-supplicant.txt on the root of the flashed card when using it like a thumb drive. Important: Do not use WordPad (Windows) or TextEdit (MacOS X) for this, those editors are known to mangle the file, making configuration fail. Use something like Notepad++, Atom or VSCode instead or at the very least heed the warnings in the file. a. Note: Often, connectivity issues can be boiled down to WiFi issues. If you’re having trouble, try plugging in an ethernet cable.
  2. Boot the Pi from the card.
  3. Log into your Pi via SSH (it should be located at http://fluiddpi.local) if your computer supports Bonjour. If not, you may need to access via it’s IP address.
    • If your computer supports Bonjour, it should be located at http://fluiddpi.local.
    • For networks that correctly manage DNS, your host maybe located at http://fluiddpi.
    • If you can’t find your Pi, try inspecting your Router web UI.
  4. Configure your host.
    • The default username and password is pi and raspberry.
    • Run the raspi-config tool; sudo raspi-config
    • Change your Password via System Options -> Password.
    • Change your Timezone via Localization Options -> Timezone.
    • Change your Locale via Localization Options -> Locale.
    • Optionally change your hostname via System Options -> Hostname. Your hostname should be a single word. Fluidd will no longer be available at fluiddpi.local but rather yourhostname.local.
  5. You should not need to expand the filesystem. You should not need to manually enable the RaspiCam. This is done for you.
  6. You should now be able to access Fluidd through http://fluidd.local or http://yourhostname.local.
