Useful Tips

These are tips I have gleaned that describe useful (?) customizations in Raspberry (13.10 - now 20.04). To find out what version of Raspberry is running, type lsb_release -a into a terminal window at a shell prompt.

Fixing SSH

As of the November 2016 release, Raspberry Pi OS has the SSH server disabled by default. It can be enabled manually from the desktop:

  1. Launch Raspberry Pi Configuration from the Preferences menu
  2. Navigate to the Interfaces tab
  3. Select Enabled next to SSH
  4. Click OK

Alternatively, raspi-config can be used in the terminal:

  1. Enter sudo raspi-config in a terminal window
  2. Select Interfacing Options
  3. Navigate to and select SSH
  4. Choose Yes
  5. Select Ok
  6. Choose Finish

Alternatively, use systemctl to start the service

  1. sudo systemctl enable ssh
  2. sudo systemctl start ssh
But bear in mind that this latter does not persist across a reboot.

Regular Software under Raspberry

Here is a list of all the software I regularly use, and which needs to be installed in a new Raspberry system:

  1. apache2
  2. firefox
  3. make
  4. python2 and 3
  5. xsltproc
The list is being extended as I recognize missing entries.
