Introduction

In this section I am going to get the Raspberry Pi set up and ready to work. To do that I will be following this guide.

Starting Up

Following the Raspberry Pi guide I am going to fire this up for the first time.

First, I dig out one of my MANY extra keyboards and mice and connect those through the usb ports.
Second, I no longer have an extra monitor so I had to steal my second monitor. Another stroke of luck, I had an unopened Amazon Basics HDMI cord.
Third, on first start up I select the ‘Raspbian FULL’ option.
Finally, after some reboots and some options my Pi was ready to run

Remote Connection

In order to keep me from having to connect to my second monitor (as well as getting out my extra keyboard and mouse) I am going to enable SSH and Remote Desktop.

SSH

To enable SSH, go to the Raspberry menu -> Preferences -> Raspberry Pi Configuration. On that screen go to Interfaces and enabled SSH.

On my machine I didn’t have to install anything because OpenSSH client was already installed. If you don’t have it installed it is under ‘Optional Features’ under the Apps setting screen.

Remote Desktop

To enable SSH, go to the Raspberry menu -> Preferences -> Raspberry Pi Configuration. On that screen go to Interfaces and enabled VNC.

Now, on my main computer I need to download and install RealVNC

Conclusion

One of the awesome things about the Raspberry Pi is how easy it is to setup. It really is a 15 minute setup.
