RGBLCD screen library help for Python in Ubilinux

I'm using Ubilinux because there are so many good features about it.

However, my only issue that I have right now, is how to use the RGBLCD with Ubilinux. It does come with the mraa library, but no documentation on how to use the LCD anywhere, besides changing the color of the screen. I really want to be able to add text to the LCD screen as well.

How do I get the library pyupm_i2clcd on ubilinux?

pip install pyupm_i2clcd doesn't work for me, nor do I see the library files on the github account. Please help.

 

Thanks

Hi,

In Yocto you can use the ipk package from http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/3.0/intelgalactic/opkg/i586/ http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/3.0/intelgalactic/opkg/i586/, and install it with opkg install upm once the repository set in /etc/opkg.

In order to install the library in Ubilinux I suggest you to contact EmutexLabs, they are the owners of the image so they could help you and give you the best way of install this library. http://www.emutexlabs.com/forum/index http://www.emutexlabs.com/forum/index

 

You can build it by following this instructions: https://github.com/intel-iot-devkit/upm/blob/master/docs/building.md https://github.com/intel-iot-devkit/upm/blob/master/docs/building.md

Is this the file you need https://github.com/intel-iot-devkit/upm/blob/master/src/lcd/pyupm_i2clcd.i https://github.com/intel-iot-devkit/upm/blob/master/src/lcd/pyupm_i2clcd.i?
