Hi all, my name is Mike and I’m a complete Newbie to Raspberry Pi. Just received and unboxed the GrovePi and followed the directions to get it connected to the network. I can easily get to the ‘welcome’ page (Raspbian for Robots) that offers the choices of VNC or Terminal.
Using the instructions on webpage [https://www.dexterindustries.com/GrovePi/get-started-with-the-grovepi/], I managed to get down to the middle of Test The Grove Pi. Item 7 has me trying to check the firmware version. I followed the directions to change the directory then tried to type in the command: sudo python grove_firmware_version_check.py When I type the ‘underscore’ character, nothing happens in the Terminal screen. Alpha characters work fine, the hyphen works fine, just not the Underscore. I tried this using a second computer and have the same problem.
The first computer is an HP desktop with an HP keyboard. The other is a Surface Pro 3 with the Surface Type Cover [keyboard].
To type an Underscore, I’m holding down the Shift key and clicking the Hyphen/Underscore key. The key works properly here_ _ but doesn’t populate the character into the Terminal window.
By the way, I have no programming knowledge and it’s been years since I did anything with MSDOS but some of this looks familiar, such as CD to Change Directory. I did a Search in the Forums for the word “underscore” and didn’t find anything that sounded like this problem.
Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks in advance!
