I'm afraid I don't understand this statement:
"go to 'Help->System Information'
This Does not exist on the system I'm working on.
This system is a CubieTruck ARMHFV7i running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. The window manager is LXDE.
Python version is 2.7.3
I did a locate pySerial and it comes up with nothing.
Have I do something wrong? Do I need to install something else?
