Can't set up Unicorn Hat


#1

Hi,

I’ve tried all of the installation commands on the GitHub page, ie the curl command and the python ones and the python ones installed fine but the curl one comes up with a syntax error (with the file it’s trying to download/execute, not my command), hence I can’t install what’s required to get it working.

Any help would be appreciated.

Merry Christmas!

Curious! What was the syntax error? Were you running:

curl get.pimoroni.com/unicornhat | bash

You can download the whole github repository and go into the unicornhat and ws2812 folders and run:

sudo ./setup.py install

In both, if all else fails!

Thanks for replying.

My apologies, but it seems I was mistyping the command, silly me!

Everything seemed to work fine after that. Now to start exploring the examples and create my own blinky light show!
