Errno 2 with

Hey all! Picked up a GoPiGo kit yesterday, and I’ve been having issues with setting up the pi to control it. Been following the instructions for option 3 here: So, the first time, I was missing smbus. No problem, I download the files using apt-get, and it no longer told me it was missing the smbus module. However, I get this unique error now:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “./”, line 22, in <module>
from gopigo import *
File “/home/pi/GoPiGo/Software/Python/”, line 46, in <module>
bus = smbus.SMBus(1)
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

Some researching tells me that a file is not being found. Unfortunately, the most important piece of info is missing from the error message: the file!

Any suggestions? I tried going into the config.txt file to enable i2c, and then going into advance settings, but this didn’t seem to remedy the situation.

For reference, I am using a Raspberry Pi 2 with Debian Wheezy. Any other information needed I’ll gladly give. All help is appreciated!

If you are running your own SD card, can you just make sure that you have run the install script from here: If you have done that, make sure to run the scripts as sudo. Can you paste the screenshot of the command and the result if this does not work.
