Re: Sense-Hat Problems

Wed Mar 28, 2018 6:01 pm

I recently bought a Sense HAT and tried to put it on a 2014 Raspberry Pi B+. Followed the first few lines to update, install, and reboot. Next was the "from sense_hat import SenseHat" and I get the error message - "from: can't read /var/mail/sense_hat"

Anyone have a clue why I'm getting this message? :?:

Have you used Python before ?

You need to open Thonny or IDLE3 at the Desktop, then create a new Project.
Follow this ... -sense-hat

If you are using an old version of Raspbian, I would recommend getting the latest version.
B+ is quite old so you could be on a very old version.

I have a feeling you are trying to enter it all at the Terminal/Command line
