problem with the new LCD 128x64 Bricklet in python 2.7.3

Recommended Posts

Hello,

i have a problem with the new LCD 128x64 Bricklet in python 2.7.3 running on a raspberry.

When i run this code:

 

#!/usr/bin/env python

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

 

HOST = "localhost"

PORT = 4223

UID = "XYZ" # Change XYZ to the UID of your LCD 128x64 Bricklet

 

from tinkerforge.ip_connection import IPConnection

from tinkerforge.bricklet_lcd_128x64 import BrickletLCD128x64

 

if __name__ == "__main__":

    ipcon = IPConnection() # Create IP connection

    lcd = BrickletLCD128x64(UID, ipcon) # Create device object

 

    ipcon.connect(HOST, PORT) # Connect to brickd

    # Don't use device before ipcon is connected

 

    # Clear display

    lcd.clear_display()

 

    # Write "Hello World" starting from upper left corner of the screen

    lcd.write_line(0, 0, "Hello World")

 

    raw_input("Press key to exit\n") # Use input() in Python 3

    ipcon.disconnect()

 

this error is shown:

 

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "display.py", line 13, in <module>

    from tinkerforge.bricklet_lcd_128x64 import BrickletLCD128x64

ImportError: No module named bricklet_lcd_128x64[/color]

 

Can anyone help me?

You can either use the newest RED Brick image (1.13), it comes with the LCD128x64 Bindings or you can update them with the Brick Viewer.

Did you check the UID? Maybe you are using the UID of a wrong Bricklet, that could explain the exception here.
