Cannot connect to GoPiGo3 robot from Raspbian for Robots OS

I have no problem controlling the robot using the DexterOS either thru Bloxter, Advanced Bloxter, or Python; however, when I use Raspbian for Robots OS, I cannot control the robot from the command window
(https://www.dexterindustries.com/GoPiGo/projects/python-examples-for-the-raspberry-pi/basic-robot-control-with-the-raspberry-pi-gopigo/)

or by launching Scratch from the desktop.

It appears there is no communication between Raspbian for Robots and the GoPiGo3

Hi @terryandunha,

When running Raspbian For Robots on your Raspberry Pi, please make sure:

  • You have internet access.

  • You have the GoPiGo3 stacked on the Raspberry Pi.

Then run the following commands inside a terminal session in the following order (by the way, follow any given instructions, even if it asks you to reboot the machine):

sudo curl -kL dexterindustries.com/update_gopigo3 | bash
python /home/pi/Dexter/GoPiGo3/Software/Python/Examples/Read_Info.py

After you do this, please come back with a screenshot/results of what you got - this should solve your issue though.

Thank you!
