Re: Sense-Hat Problems

Re SenseHat Difficulties Do I understand correctly - The Jessie version of OS already contains Sense-Hat software? I also understand that you do not need to install Upgrade and Pillow, is this correct? When you Raspi-Config and choose I2C does this enable i2c tools automatically, as I have seen inst...

If this is correct, how can I create an emdash using debian linux via Putty or SSH remotely?
Thanks
