Unicorn HAT + Raspberry PI 3 Not lighting at all


#1

Hello All, I just got my new unicorn hat. I am using Raspberry PI 3. The script examples are running but the unicorn HAT is not lighting at all!! I disabled the audio analog. (typed aplay -l and got no soundcards found…).
Any ideas?


#2

Unicorn HAT or Unicorn HAT HD? (they use different libraries, just to be confusing!)


#3

It is Unicorn HAT HD


#4

Which one-line installer did you use? You have to use the HD one, since the “unicornhat” software is not compatible with HD:

curl get.pimoroni.com/unicornhathd | bash

Thank you so much!! This works! I never noticed that there is a difference in the libraries. This is confusing.
