I have recently purchased an Inky wHAT (yellow), I’ve connected it to a Raspberry Pi Zero W (on a fresh Raspbian -Buster-Lite image, followed the instructions as per the tutorial
, once that finishes I run the examples I get no errors but literally nothing happens on the display. I have tried a different raspberry pi zero with and have the exact same result. I’ve flashed the SD, installed again but exactly the same thing nothing. The example I am using is python name-badge.py --type “what” --colour “yellow” --name “Inigo Montoya”.
I have tried python3 : python3 name-badge.py --type “what” --colour “yellow” --name “Inigo Montoya”. But again nothing at all.
During the one line install I do get the errors Unable to locate package xxxx
Apt failed to install xxxx then it says falling back on pypi and then downloadsthe approriate packages, so perhaps this is ok? The below is an example output:
E: Unable to locate package python-fonts
Apt failed to install python-fonts!
Falling back on pypi…
