We recently decided to try Octoprint on a Raspberry Pi Zero W with camera but the current Octoprint image just doesn't work on the Pi Zero W without additional config.

It's really easy but you'll need a Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 with a tested and working internet connnection.

Download the Octoprint image and write to your SD card.

We like to use Etcher as it's quick, easy and works flawlessly.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install binutils
sudo apt-get install rpi-update
sudo rpi-update

Once done; shut down the Pi and put the SD card back into the Raspberry Pi Zero W.

Connect the Pi Zero W to your printer, power it up and then visit http://octopi.local and you're good to go!
