Raspberry Pi Headless Setup

Raspberry Pi Headless Setup

After many question on how to set up the raspberry pi, I decided to compile a brief how to for headless raspberry pi setup. This should work for all models. I was using retropie as my system, but if you are using linux, the setup should be simillar if not the same. Before you start, download a system image of your choice and flash it to your sd card. Once done, follow these simple steps:

    1. Create empty file with no extension with name “ssh” and put it to the root of the boot partition on your microSD
    2. Create another file called wpa_supplicant.conf and place it to the root of the boot partition on your microSD
    3. Edit the wpa_supplicant file and end just copy and paste following text and save the file (you need to fill in your network credentials):
      ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev

    4. Insert the card to the raspberry and power it on
    5. I am not sure what pi you have, so if you have a zero, give it some time (maybe even 2 minutes) to boot and connect to your router
    6. Then just go to your router config and find out the IP address of your Pi (if unsure, you have to research on this, I don’t know what router you have) in the table of DHCP clients possibly and it should clearly say retropie (I think :))
    7. Once you have the IP address of your pi, get the putty client(or what ever ssh client you prefer) and open a connection to your pi – user name on new installation will be “pi” and password “raspberry”
    8. voila – you have now headlessly set your Pi up 😉
