Inky Frame 4.0 Examples ImportError: no module named 'inky_frame'


I was excited to try out my Inky Frame 4.0, but when I tried running (example file) I got the following:

ImportError: no module named ‘inky_frame’

This is after installing:

Did anyone else experience that?

I think you’ll need v1.19.11 for the new Inky Frame stuff.

I’m pretty sure I have Pimoroni 1.9.14 on my Inky Frames (is there a way to tell?) and I’m getting an error about a missing wakeup module. I’m just about to try some other versions.

Type "help()" for more information.

I was using pimoroni-picow-v1.19.14-micropython.uf2 rather than pimoroni-picow_inky_frame-v1.19.14-micropython.uf2 based on the previous instructions in the guide - I see these have been updated to recommend the dedicated uf2.

A key part to that is to click on Show all 16 assets as the Inky Frame versions “hide” at the bottom of the list.
