Re: SD card won't format

Have you tried the SD formatter (https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/)? Another option would be to use a digital camera. And you could also try to write an OS image from https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/ directly to the card with Etcher (https://etcher.io/). There should be no...

Re: Help installing a new library

The repository is here: https://github.com/sbcshop/motor-shield Thanks. I checked out the repo and it seems straightforward. You really don't need to install anything. Since you already downloaded the file you can just copy (or move) it to the directory where you have stored your script / program. ...

Re: Unable to Install few packages on Raspberry Pi 3 - Connection Failed on few headers

If the libgtk package is not in the repo you would have got a message telling you that.
(unless your apt cache is thoroughly messed up)
Did you run 'sudo apt update' before trying to install?
Did it give any errors or warnings?

BTW: the error messages actually suggest a networking problem

Re: PATH question - research done.

AFAIK .profile is only read when logging in, not when starting a new terminal session.
So try logging out and in to see if the path changes are picked up

So you already copied the zip file to the Pi?

Use the Kodi interface to install it. On my OSMC I do this (but it's probably more or less the same in any Kodi setup):
Settings / add-on browser / Install from zip file
Then probably home folder and select the zip file

It means that the command you give is incorrect.
Exactly what command do you use to start the SSH connection?
