Getting on line

Sun Jun 22, 2014 11:19 am

Simon Monk says to get on line to copy this code in Lesson 4. How do I do that? Real Newbe here!

I don't know who Simon Monk is or what he says in lesson 4 but at a guess you have a command starting with sudo ifconfig?

If so you need to open lxterminal (under accessories in the menu, if I remember rightly) and type it in.

If it's something else you might want to post it here so we can tell you :)

To access the web, you can plug your pi into your router with an ethernet cable. Just plug one end into the router, and plug the other into the pi.

However, you can also use Wi-Fi, with a Wi-Fi adapter . I would recommend getting a pi-specific model such as the 'pi hut usb wifi adapter' (just google that). Then you can follow the instructions at http://thepihut.com/pages/how-to-setup- ... i-raspbian .

Rather than negativity think outside the box !

Asus ChromeBox 3 Celeron is my other computer.

Thanks guys! I had the Wi-Fi stuff operating okay, but did not know what Midori was in order to use it as a browser. I understand and used it to load several things. Simon Monk has start up lessons on Adafruit.com. Thanks again. I am sure I will be back with more simpleton questions later.
