I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success... Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything. -- Nikola Tesla

Your friend has challenged you to DK!

More documentation of things I have noticed.

In the section of setting up Octoprint, there is a part where the commands to be typed, and the physical keys to be pressed are not clearly defined.

http://wiki.thing-printer.com/index.php?title=Kamikaze#System_commands

The CTL+D looks like it should just be pasted into the shell, when it means to exit/quit the cat command.

And the whitespace is slightly wrong, leading to the command not working. The one that works for me is:

system:
actions:
- action: Reboot Octorint
command: sudo systemctl restart octoprint.service
name: Reboot Octorint
- action: Reboot
command: sudo shutdown -r now
name: Reboot
- action: Shutdown
command: sudo shutdown -h now
name: Shutdown

and the one on the wiki is

system:
actions:
- action: Reboot Octorint
command: sudo systemctl restart octoprint.service
name: Reboot Octorint
- action: Reboot
command: sudo shutdown -r now
name: Reboot
- action: Shutdown
command: sudo shutdown -h now
name: Shutdown

And it even locked up my octoprint for a while. I edited this all in nano, which worked just fine.

I am going to attempt to document all the things I find with Replicape/Kamikaze getting it installed into my Rostock Max V2 printer. This will be as I find them, and remember to write them down. They might not be in any order. But I think that documentation being written down is a start of something.

First thing is that the instructions on the wiki for Kamikaze install are not clear as they could be. For instance, it is mentioned in one spot that having all 4 lights solid blue means that it is time to power down the board and remove the SD card. But before that, it is mentioned that it will 'power down' but having all 4 lights on doesn't really seem like a 'powered down' state to me.

Secondly, the 'ping kamikaze.local' command only works if you have a mDNS/SD-DNS installed, and Win10 does not have it installed by default for all applications. You need to download and install one, and the major one is (ironically) Apple based. It is called "Bonjour Print Services for Windows" even more confusingly since it works for everything and not just printers... Once that is installed, then it works as expected. It usually returns an IPV6 address, but sometimes a IPV4 address, so PuTTY kind of freaks out sometimes when connecting. Oh, and having a WiFi and wired connection also makes everything freak out--so pick one or the other. Not both. Wired is more reliable, but wireless is far more convenient if you are pulling the board in and out of places.

Manga Screen seems to be wonky. Less than half the screen responds to touch, and the side looks weird.

I was instructed by Elias to run a command of:

cat /sys/devices/platform/ocp/4830e000.lcdc/drm/card0/card0-HDMI-A-1/edid | parse-edid

And when I do I get "Partial Read... Try Again"

What does this mean and/or how do I fix it?

I realize that they are doing a good thing. I think this is amazing.

But...

I can't help but think that this just is playing on the novelty of the whole ordering in ASL, and that they won't have much patronage after a few months. And that is really unfortunate.
