That was soooo much better thanks, It seems that the import module Adafruit_DHT imports. When the readTemp Command is invoked the DHT read code runs but I am still erroring out with this: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/pi/py3prog/TkinterTutor11DHTRead.py", line 5, in <module> humidit...

Re: importing modules from other directory paths

What is in your variable PYTHONPATH? Have you made PYTHONPATH available to the python interpreter through an export statement? sys.path won't be able to access it otherwise. I do not know exactly how to use a PYTHONPATH variable. I have been unable to find a clear example of it in use. I had been b...

I purchased a preloaded Noobs/ SD card with Jessie when I bought my Pi 3. The first boot up the Drop down menu looked normal. There were preferences and all of the Libre programs were also available. In preferences there was no WiFi setup to select and that is where the trouble started. I was clicki...

Update to RPi 2 B Wheezy??

Sorry for the idiocy here. I have been out of circulation for awhile and my pi's have been dormant. I am now getting back into things and was going to attempt to set up a static IP address. So to do this I first did an apt-get update. I was amazed that the command line was telling me that my update ...

Re: ssh RSA Id changed

It's a pretty dumb message due to sshd being restarted on your RPi. It is not a dumb message, it is essential to the security of the protocol. If ssh did not check host keys you would have no idea whether your communications were being intercepted. And it cannot happen because sshd has restarted. I...
