I flashed the
Ubuntu MATE distro with my
OSX. Now I try to connect to my
ssh. I get an
IP but when I try to log with ubuntu/ubuntu as a login/password, it does not work. Is it configured to support
First, I had to connect to the
pi via display. At this step, I experienced interesting issue : I couldn't have any image on the display. This was related to old screen/HDMI cable. I finally forced the config.txt file in that way : uncommenting hdmi_safe=1 and hdmi_force_unplug=1 and it did the trick.
Second, I realised that the problem that
ssh client was indeed installed but
ssh server was not. So I installed it and it did the trick !
Firstly, make a backup of the original
sudo cp /etc/ssh/sshd_config /etc/ssh/sshd_config.original
You can modify your SSH config at your own risk by editing the following file:
sudo vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config
Finally, you can run the following command to apply the changes:
sudo /etc/init.d/ssh restart
You don't have SSH configured when system is first flashed. In fact, you can't properly set up the system unless you can connect it to a display. I haven't tried direct tty connection via USB, which may be possible.
My problem was with connecting to an old monitor via HDMI and not getting a picture. I connected to the TV and was able to complete the configuration.
Old Post but :
Flash Mate to microsd and make a file called ssh (without .txt extension) in the Boot partition. Boot PI. Connect with Putty over ssh to your PI´s IP Adress username "pi" Password "raspberry"
