Unicorn HAT software


#1

Hi,
I have just tried to update/upgrade the software with

curl https://get.pimoroni/uptodate | bash
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

and I understand there is now meant to be a folder called Pimoroni, which I can’t see. It seems as though the update went ok and rebooted ok. Anyone know what I might be doing wrong here?
Thanks,
Heidi

hi, i think you need to run this , curl https://get.pimoroni.com/unicornhat | bash , and then you will find the pimoroni folder here , /home/pi/Pimoroni/unicornhathd/

the info came from here .

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
will update / upgrade Raspbian. I normally run those first, before doing anything else.

curl https://get.pimoroni/uptodate | bash
I believe only updates “previously” installed Pimoroni software?
So that begs the question, was the Unicorn Hat software already installed?
If no, Jacks instructions will sort it out.
If yes, I’d run what Jack posted anyway, it won’t hurt anything as far as I know and it will then get you your Pimoroni folder. In that folder you will see a unicornhat folder with an examples folder ect in that.

If things do get messed up after running the one line installer, I’d start over with a fresh Raspbian image and just run the one line installer for the unicorn hat.
curl https://get.pimoroni.com/unicornhat | bash
