Slight update- fixed the error I was seeing. It runs now, without crashing..... however nothing actually happens. When sending emails, it does not feed. and Display/button dont work. I'll have to try to step through it
Hardware wise, everything went pretty smooth. I was able to get most things on Amazon/Ebay. Software wise, i'm still debugging :/
So the first error i get is the adafruit one below. After some researching i'm guessing the repositories have been updated. I was able to remedy that error with the following lines dictating each pin for communication. Had to change a couple references of SetCursor to Set_cursor. After that, it runs for about 30 seconds, then the last error. Pictures should be in order. Thanks for looking at this :)
Raspberry Pi Class
I made this, however cannot get the code to work. I updated all the calls to the libraries (rpi.gpio, adafruit_char_lcd) that gave errors when the code ran. I need to debug the python script more, its running but nothing was actually working. I ended up making some custom script myself just to say "if button press, activate LED, wait for 4 hours, at 4 hours, cycle motor for 20 seconds, turn led off"OP, anyway we can get updated python code?
