Looking for some assistance getting the Pimoroni Fan Shim configured.
I’m assembling a pi-star digital voice hotspot for amateur radio on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+. I’ve added the Pimoroni Fan Shim to aid in cooling.
The installation seemed to go fine, using the steps on Pimoroni’s page Getting Started with Fan SHIM (pimoroni.com).
That was until I came to the part where you add the script to add temperature thresholds. When I tried to run the
sudo ./install-service.sh with the parameters, I recieved an “error” message
A snippet from the Terminal:
pistar@pi-star(rw):fanshim-python$ cd examples pistar@pi-star(rw):examples$ sudo ./install-service.sh --on-threshold 65 --off-threshold 55 --delay 2 Fan SHIM controller requires Python 3 pip You should run: 'sudo apt install python3-pip'
There is no mention of the SHIM controller requiring Python 3 pip in the Getting Started steps.
My question is, did I do something incorrectly, or is the documentation missing important steps… or some third option that does not occur to me :) ?
