LED Shim Support

  • Been looking at sprucing up my RPI3 case and came across this from Pimoroni. Would be a nice addition however I'm not sure on the feasibility on getting this working on LE, especially with my limited coding knowledge. I understand there is some I2C support but to get the required packages working I'm guessing I'd have compile LE myself or could this be achieved with an addon?

  • Have a look at the "Pi Tools" addon; it most likely has all the extra Python libs/bits required for GPIO work etc, and if it doesn't we'd be happy to accept changes to add them.

  • Thanks yes I've got this installed hence why I thought this would be possible. Now just to piece the puzzle to together...

    From what I can tell from this script these packages are needed/installed:


    SMBUS2="python-smbus_3.1.1+svn-2_armhf.deb"

    SMBUS3="python3-smbus_3.1.1+svn-2_armhf.deb"

    SMBUS35="python3-smbus1_1.1+35dbg-1_armhf.deb"


    SPIDEV2="python-spidev_2.0~git20150907_armhf.deb"

    SPIDEV3="python3-spidev_2.0~git20150907_armhf.deb"


    RPIGPIO1="raspi-gpio_0.20170105_armhf.deb"

    RPIGPIO2="python-rpi.gpio_0.6.3~jessie-1_armhf.deb"

    RPIGPIO3="python3-rpi.gpio_0.6.3~jessie-1_armhf.deb"
