Hi! I'm Lucas, IT student at HTW Dresden University of Applied Science based in Dresden, Germany.
I like to experiment with and learn about Linux, Raspberry Pi, AVRs, Electronics, Programming and Software Engineering and whatever else might interest me.
This is my personal website, the place where you might find some of my ramblings, side-projects, how-to's and rants.

My roommate and I are owning a Brother HL-L2300D printer. It's a decent printer and it works perfectly fine, it can do duplex printing, it is very economical and it even comes with reasonably good Linux support.
What it does not feature though is network printing. Not a big deal, we own a Raspberry Pi and the device has linux drivers, right? So in theory it would be easy to just use the Pi as a printing server. However, in practice, we soon realized that installing that printer's drivers on a Pi wasn't actually that easy (as with many printers, actually)...
