I’ve constructed the GoPiGo and am having problems. The SD card only installed the standard Raspbian desktop and nothing else. It appears it didn’t contain Raspbian for Robots as was written on the SD card label. There was no other option offered apart from standard open source Raspbian in the setup. It also gave an error message stating that there was a file transfer error re: a GUI file which required a password. No idea what that means as I was not even connected to the Ethernet.
I have been using a HDMI cable and a wifi keyboard and mouse with a plugged in power cable-nothing else.
The internet won’t connect to my computer (windows 7 laptop) without a “pre-shared key”. I assume that means a password though I don’t use one for my internet.
The Wifi dongle also won’t connect to my computer and it won’t connect through Ethernet either. I gather I have to find some software to run the Wifi dongle.??? Should I take the SD card out and put it in my laptop and download some wifi software? Would this even work?
I suppose I could knock up a program with Python to make it work a bit without Wifi and attached to the HDMI cable but there’s not much point.
How can I get the Raspbian for Robots software? Can Dexter send me another SD card with the software on it?
Can you please help me as I’m really disappointed with this product.
