Hi I have a brand new Inky PHAT in Yellow and can’t get it to work. I installed as per the instructions and tried to run the name badge example but get “Failed to detect an Inky board, you must specify the type and color manually”.
I specifed them manually trying various options but then I get the error all the time
"Failed to detect an Inky board, you must specify the type and colour manually.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “name-badge.py”, line 18, in
inky_display = auto(ask_user=True, verbose=True)
File “/usr/local/lib/python3.7/dist-packages/inky/auto.py”, line 19, in auto if args.type == “phat”:
AttributeError: ‘tuple’ object has no attribute ‘type’.
I am disappointed as there seems to be multiple complaints with the Inky PHAT not working and no replies in the forum. I have tried on a Pi Zero 1.3 and also new Pi 4 both with the same results.
Does anyone have any suggestions as how I can get this to work?
I tried one of the other examples and get the same error. I tried the python to print “Hello World” but nothing happened on the display and no errors.
Thanks in Advance
