Starting up with a new SD card

Update Raspbian

First, update your system's package list by entering the following command:

sudo apt-get update

Next, upgrade all your installed packages to their latest versions with the command:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Generally speaking, doing this regularly will keep your installation up to date, in that it will be equivalent to the latest released image available from http://raspberrypi.org/downloads.

However, there are occasional changes made in the Foundation's Raspbian image that require manual intervention, for example a newly introduced package. These are not installed with an upgrade, as this command only updates the packages you already have installed.

Update Docker Images

Pulls an image associated with a service defined in a docker-compose.yml or docker-stack.yml file, but does not start containers based on those images.

docker-compose pull

Builds, (re)creates, starts, and attaches to containers for a service.

docker-compose up -d

Enable SSH

Make the device discoverable by name for Windows

sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install samba samba-common-bin

Restart the samba:

sudo service smbd restart

Enable Microsoft Remote Desktop clients to connect to Raspberry Pi

sudo apt-get install xrdp

Apparently there is a/are defect(s) which prevent xrdp working with the vncserver.
However it works with tightvncserver.
Also the order of installation of tightvncserver and xrdp seems to be important.
In summary remove the following packages : xrdp, vnc4server, tightvncserver.

sudo apt-get remove xrdp vnc4server tightvncserver

install tightvncserver followed by xrdp

sudo apt-get install tightvncserver
sudo apt-get install xrdp



Raspberry Pi as USB server
