Karan and John, to clarify, when initially setting up the GoPiGo, I successfully connected using putty (Host Name - raspberrypi.local, login as: pi, firstname.lastname@example.org’s password: raspberry), then successfully connected using VNC (VNC Server - raspberrypi.local:1; password – raspberry) and got what I assume is the standard Raspbian GUI which included the “Di” software update utility. Per the standard setup instructions found at this link, I attempted to run the Di utility which failed at the Linux command line and then followed these instructions to successfully update the software and firmware (I think) manually. Perhaps I’ve only updated the software or firmware and not both?
- Make sure robot connected to internet: ping google.com
- cd ~/Desktop/GoPiGo
- sudo git pull – pulls all firmware updates to local robot from Dexter website
- Follow steps here minus trim settings - http://www.dexterindustries.com/GoPiGo/programming/python-programming-for-the-raspberry-pi-gopigo/add-trim-to-the-motors/
Karan, apologies, but I don’t know how to determine the image name I’m using per your post: “Can you have a look at the image that you are using and post the image name. The latest image uses dex.local as the username and robots1234 as the password. Can you try that out and let us know if it helps.” Can you clarify how to do this, and also where I would use the dex.local and robots1234 login to do so? Unsure if this helps, but please see attached picture of login page I get when I attach directly to the robot as a desktop; does this tell us anything, and is there a login and password I can use here to help?
John, just to confirm, I have been using VNC hostname “raspberrypi.local:1” with password “raspberry” and continue to receive “The connection was refused by the host computer” message.
