I bought a BLINKT! a couple of weeks ago and have tried to connect it to a Raspberry Pi Zero, but I can’t get it to work. As far as I can tell it is properly connected (and the right way around).
When I ran “curl https://get.pimoroni.com/blinkt | bash” the script downloaded, but when I typed “y” to run it I got an error saying “We can’t connect to the Internet, check your network!”. The Pi definitely has internet access.
I read a post on a forum saying you could install the Python library by running “sudo pip install blinkt”. That seemed to work. From a Python command prompt I can import the blinkt library and any commands I run don’t show any errors, but nothing happens on the BLINKT. Nothing lights up. I have followed the tutorial at:
Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong? Or is the BLINKT faulty?
