Thanks for the help last night on the Arduino plugin.
I know what I need to do.
And now, another question. I have been working with the plugin for We Do
robots. The plugin is installed and the palette is where it is supposed to
be. But, the We Do does not respond to the program.
When I look at the Turtle Arts plugin page (
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Activities/Turtle_Art/Plugins), I am directed
to this link:
to download directions for setting up permissions. However, there are two
files there and I am not sure what to do with them.
I would appreciate any help you can provide.
