Mac Software


#1

I followed the step by step guide, and i am at Chapter 5 Step 5 “Putty” there is no link for the me follow, and i have typed in all the code into the Mac terminal and the VNC terminal system only to get nothing back. All the lights are blinking with means the thing is working.

I also did the extra step if “ifconfig” in the VNC command line which was successful with no issues.

I"m lost where should i start over at & what should i download.?

putty is not for us MACies, it’s just a ssh client for windows. On a mac you just open a terminal window (you find it at application/utilities) and type in “ssh”.

Did you folloe the youtube video tutorial? It seems really nice and complete and shows the connection between the go and a macbook: https://youtu.be/tmTvmlsdXOU?list=PLGXEJ4Ye1qCNZ9OGYTXh7o8jSgO5-NHjY


#3

I put ssh into the terminal, and got back.

I went into VNC into T&T ran a test, and the little dude is connected, and working fine.

What part should i go back too, and redo?

Hey,
Can you follow the guide here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ha1YiB2An18&list=PLGXEJ4Ye1qCNZ9OGYTXh7o8jSgO5-NHjY&index=3 and see if the terminal works for you too. Even VNC should be good enough for doing everything on the pi.

I appreciate the link, but how do i get the thing to move is the question!

Everything is running everything is working, but what am i missing?

I am at Basic Robot Control page, but those scripts are not saying “No such file or directory”

ngmorales, it sounds like you’re not logged onto the pi. You’re able to ping the Pi, but that’s not the same as being logged into the Pi. Karan gave a really good link, heres’ the exact spot you should be watchingo n the youtube video: https://youtu.be/Ha1YiB2An18?list=PLGXEJ4Ye1qCNZ9OGYTXh7o8jSgO5-NHjY

You’ve setup the Pi to connect, but you haven’t logged onto it. So, once you logon and open up the Raspberry Pi terminal, you should be able to then open the Basic Robot Controls.

Maybe if this is further confusing, you can show us a screenshot of where you tried to run the basic robot controls and ran into “No such file or directory”

I followed the YouTube video for the second time, and we are still kinda where I am at before.

I have redone all the suggestions.

Using the ssh command alone would not do anything. Can you try ssh dex.local and see if that works. The easier way is just to log into the Pi from the browser using the instructions in the video: https://youtu.be/Ha1YiB2An18?list=PLGXEJ4Ye1qCNZ9OGYTXh7o8jSgO5-NHjY.

Just open your browser and enter: dex.local in the address bar and press enter and the Dexter Industries screen should appear which would give you access to the Pi with VNC or terminal.

Again, just to reiterate what Karan is saying, I would highly recommend you watch the video series we have about getting setup. I think it would clear up the connection steps a bit.
