Install LibreConnect on a Raspberry Pi
If you want to install libreConnect inside /opt/libreConnect
Check the wget url here
mkdir /opt/libreconnect cd /opt/libreconnect wget https://github.com/madnerdorg/libreconnect/releases/download/1.0/libreconnect_rpi_v1.zip unzip libreconnect_rpi.zip
You can then test it with the command:

usb_scanner must be start in its folder.
Make it visible in Windows Network
You can use samba without sharing files just to make your Raspberry Pi visible
apt-get install samba

Build a Wifi USB Hub
Here is a proof-of-concept of a Raspberry Pi Wifi USB Hub that fits in a pocket.
You can find stl files (and .blend) here: https://github.com/madnerdorg/libreconnect/tree/master/3D/spidersocket
I used an Anker 4-Port Ultra Slim USB3 Hub.
