Tinkerforge Weather-station python script


Recommended Posts

Recently published instructions in a PC mag. pointed to http://tinyurl.com/mxw8omx. This download was to employ a completed script, to run the TF weatherstation i.e download and dump data to Drop Box. Sounded very useful indeed. Problem is the script will not run successfully in Gene the recommended compiler for this exercise.

Situation is: RPi "B" Raspibien, Gene running, file (downloaded unzipped as described above) First few lines of script read:

 

#!/usr/bin/env python

 

import pygame, csv,os

from pygame.locals import *

from datetime import datetime

import pytz

import upload

from Today import *

 

Result: Traceback (blah blah blah) Import error: No module named pytz.

program exited blah blah.

 

As one would have reasonable confidence that this script was tested before publication, one is somewhat startled by this result???

 

Any ideas?

Ah, this script is from a PC magazine. This information was missing in your German post.

 

As stated in the other thread, you're just missing the pytz module. On Debian/Ubuntu you can install it like this:

 

sudo apt-get install python-tz
