Yeah incase anyone is interested, I fixed this by clean installing a new Raspbian image and then loaded the enviroplus-python library first like @Heride mentioned above. Thanks for that
As is usual with anything linux, it still didn’t work straight away and I got error messages when trying to run any of the hat-mini python scripts. The images could not be found but I then fixed this by adding the full path to the text and not just “/images/xxx123.jpg” .
I am glad that it now works (I still have an issue when running the analog.py script - Line 71 - most likely to do with a missing font, but I can’t be bothered to fix that now. I just remmed it out until I have the strenght to tackle this again).
I am just a bit let down that the Pimoroni crew expects everyone to know how to fix these issues and it is kind of a barrier to entry for newbies like myself. Also, no one from Pimoroni officially responded to this thread. I just feel like they bring out such innovative and fun products, but once you buy it you are on your own.
Anyway, I hope my fix helps someone else get joy out of their Automation hat mini
