Beacon setup

Recommended Posts

Need some help setting up Beacon, it’s a Rev H. I have followed the instructions on the Beacon website. I have my CanBus working fine, I ran the USB cable for the Beacon, plugged into my RPi. When I SSH into my RPi and enter the command to get the dev ID for the probe, I get no such file or directory. What am I missing/doing wrong??

You're looking for a file under /dev/serial/by-id, correct? The appearance of that file should be completely automatic - you shouldn't have to do anything but plug in the USB cable at both ends (Beacon and RPi). Check the wiring and try a different USB port on the Pi. If that doesn't help, the Beacon might be DOA.

ssh into the pi and stop the klipper service

sudo systemctl stop klipper

then try again

Ok, entered the line you gave me. Typed in: ls dev/serial/by-id/ and got the same error. No such file or directory.
