PPPD not found on network connect

I have my nova successfully connected to the network sending “hello world” and everything, firmware updated as well. But when I open a network connection I get this error stating pppd not found.

pi@raspberrypi:~ sudo hologram send "hello world" RESPONSE MESSAGE: Message sent successfully pi@raspberrypi:~ sudo hologram network connect

It seems my hologram installation is wrong in some way.

Ive set my default python to 3.7

Any ideas?

What OS are you using?
can you do sudo which pppd and see if that returns anything.
If it doesn’t you will have to install PPP


It didnt return anything

sounds like ppp is not installed on your pi.
try sudo apt-get install ppp
