I meet an error when I test the Sense Hat," it cannot detect the RPI-sense FB device" as attached picture. How can I solve this problem ? Thanks.

More info on what your trying to do would help. Posting your code/file your running may help too.

What OS and what version it is would help too.

The OS is the latest vision raspbian-jessie. And some parts were tested OK and others were failed.

Open your file in idle2, then clip and past the contents here using the "Code" tags. Run it from idle and you'll get better error messages and a marker to the code that's creating the error. I test all my code in idle first, until it runs with no errors. Then give it a real world run.

Just so you know, the latest Raspbian already contains all the packages needed to run the sense hat. You shouldn't need to install anything extra. I can't tell what it is your doing from that screen shot alone.
