I feel I have to ask.
I am really not getting anywhere and am starting to clutch at straws to find out why it won't work now.
I am installing it from the CLI and it is complaining that it can't find the required libraries.
(Yes, I know...)
I ran this command before doing the install.
curl -sS get.pimoroni.com/unicornhat | bash
I don't know if it needs to be done by
sudo or not. Does it need the FULL install?
(That's 4 possibilities already)
But I have run that command to meet the prerequisites and when installing the node it says it can't find the libraries: something is wrong - somewhere.
Oh, and YES: I did reboot.
It was working on the release just before BUSTER.
While updating the power was lost and so the card won't boot.
It isn't corrupt, but just won't boot.
To further test/try to find a solution I tried both STRETCH and JESSIE (old SD cards lying around)
Did the prerequisite. Installed the node from the CLI.
"Can't find the required libraries."
This is frustrating as everything needed is on the original SD card that now won't boot.
So at a pinch, I could copy them from it to the new SD card.
But I don't know enough about how to find the required library names.
All I am asking is if someone could confirm that they can install this node and get it working with BUSTER, and HOW they did it.
When I try to install the node this is what I see:
pi@MusicPi:~/.node-red $ npm install node-red-node-pi-neopixel > email@example.com postinstall /home/pi/.node-red/node_modules/node-red-node-pi-neopixel > scripts/checklib.js WARNING : Can't find required python library WARNING : Please install using the following command WARNING : Note: this uses root... WARNING : curl -sS get.pimoroni.com/unicornhat | bash + firstname.lastname@example.org updated 1 package and audited 166 packages in 7.675s 9 packages are looking for funding run `npm fund` for details found 15 vulnerabilities (7 moderate, 7 high, 1 critical) run `npm audit fix` to fix them, or `npm audit` for details pi@MusicPi:~/.node-red $
So given I have done that
curl -sS get.pimoroni.com/unicornhat | bash command already....
What's my next option?
