Pi server issues - extruder temp not plotting

I've used the "new" Pi server image from the downloads section on my Pi2 to create my server (obviously on Pro). I've noticed a handful o issues since I paid for my Pro license:

Bed temp seems to plot ok, but in the tab that shows my printer, the Temperature is simply not plotted at all.
Since adding a USB webcam, the prints simply stop at random points in the print - the system isn't resetting - it's STOPPING. Power supply is a stable 5.2V 5A supply, so I know it's not a power problem.

What's going on guys ? I've paid for software that's "out of beta" and yet it's not working properly from an image created by the devs specifically for the PI.

I've also tried to build a fresh image on a separate SD card, but the streamer code won't compile properly (i'm not a linux guru, so i'm also firing off command code I don/t fully understand).


  • I have just tested the temperature graph and it is working for me. I tested the frontend gui and webfront gui. Are both affected or only one? Do you see correct temperature values for extruder? What firmware and version are you using?

    Firmware is 92.9.
    I only use host and the webgui - it (the Pi2) does not have a touchscreen/display as it is inside an enclosure.
    I have just installed the windows version on a spare laptop - temps are plotted in the graph, and on top of page. In fact everything seems to work a lot better.
    Placed the rebuilt Pi using the image from the download page onto printer again - values not plotted.

    I'm going to ditch the Pi/linux build for now as I have no faith in it at all. Time will tell if the PC build is any better.

  • Tested image on pi and also there I see the curves. What language are you using? And more important which ui does have the problem.
  • hi,
    I fixed this bug - it happens if i create a printer that is not physically connected to the server - it was in the web Ui - I don't run the X server or a screen.
  • You mean you had a virtual printer selected. Ok that does not return temperatures so nothing appears. Thanks for clarifying.
  • no, not a virtual printer - the wizard was cancelled during connection setup, and then config was continued once the Pi build was next to the printer (in the workshop).
    This still creates a printer config, but once you go back in and finish the setup - it won't plot the values but still communicates.
