Cannot install Blinkt s/w - We can't connect to the Internet, check your network!


#1

I keep getting the error “We can’t connect to the Internet, check your network!” when I run the Blinkt installed on a Pi3 with latest s/w.

The Pi is definitely connected to wired and wireless connection

I have it running on a zero which I installed a couple of weeks ago

May be a localised connectivity problem with the Python Package Index, it seems to have those from time to time. Can you navigate to https://pypi.python.org/pypi/blinkt in your Raspberry Pi browser?


#3

yes can do that and can down load the .z file


#4

Might be worth trying:

sudo pip install blinkt

Which will get you the library, at least, then examples are here: https://github.com/pimoroni/blinkt/tree/master/examples

Yes that worked fine all up and running now thanks
