Getting Raspbian to boot GUI

I found this good article about getting Raspbian Jessie Lite to boot with GUI.   I found that I also had to run

sudo apt-get install xorg

to finally get it to work.

[SOLVED] Controlling Astroprint directly from installed Pi?

Been looking around and can’t seem to find an answer. I have Astroprint installed and working on a Raspberry Pi on my Taz5 printer. I’m wondering if it’s possible to control the astroprint software directly from the Pi, with a monitor, keyboard and mouse connected to the Raspberry Pi that’s running the Astroprint software.

 

Printing a priming line

I’ve done this before with my previous printers.  Seems to work well with the TAZ 6 as well.  Will always get some extraneous extrusion, no matter what you do.  Minimizing it is worthwhile.

Ditched my skirt for this Prusa i3 Mk2 style wipe feature I made for the TAZ 6 – forum.lulzbot.com

Not sure if anyone else runs into this but when I print skirts there is a decent chance they get pulled into the print. After I saw how the Prusa i3 Mk2 primed its nozzle by printing a line at the front of the bed where the printer never usually prints I got jealous.
