Raspberry Pi Tools Add-on missing module "colorzero" (LE 9.95.5, Raspberry Pi Tools 9.80.11.109)

  • Hi,


    My Raspberry Pi 4 has a temperature controlled fan. It works using a Python script that relies on the Raspberry Pi Tools add-on.

    I recently updated to the latest version of LibreElec (9.95.5), requiring me to update the Raspberry Pi Tools add-on to version 9.80.11.109.


    When I try to import the "OutputDevice" class from "gpiozero", I get the following Traceback:


    Traceback (most recent call last):

    File "fancontrol.py", line 7, in <module>

    from gpiozero import OutputDevice

    File "/storage/.kodi/addons/virtual.rpi-tools/lib/gpiozero/__init__.py", line 97, in <module>

    from .output_devices import (

    File "/storage/.kodi/addons/virtual.rpi-tools/lib/gpiozero/output_devices.py", line 45, in <module>

    from colorzero import Color

    ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'colorzero'


    Is this a known issue and does anyone know a workaround for this?

    I also have problems with RPi Tools. For me the GPIO pins don't hold their state uninterrupted. I'll ask the dev's to recompile that add-on.

    Da Flex are you still on LE 9.2.6 as I don't have any issues?

  • Maybe it depends on which GPIO pins are you using. For instance, some GPIOs does not keep their state during reboot.

    I am running the LE 10 Nightly (currently 20210703) on RPi 4B, using GPIOs 4, 6 and 27 for relays and LED and did not encounter any issue so far.
