I am not a hardware person, so maybe what I try to do is not even possible. But hopefully someone can help me.
I have the raspbian for robots running using python. Everything works fine.
I would like to interact with the outside world using wxPython, based on the distance reader, so I got a piscreen (http://ozzmaker.com/piscreen-quick-start-guide/)
This screen connects to GPIO pins.
I can get the screen to work. However:
- If I connect the screen, and I try to run the python code, it throws an error it cannot find the easygopigo3 module.
I found this a surprising error. Solved this by copying the files directly into the same directory of my python program
After doing this, the program says the GOPIGO is not detected. And I also get my favorite “No SPI response. GoPiGo3 with address 8 not connected” error. Flashed the hardware and reinstalled the software: no improvements…
Removing the screen makes everything work again robotwise.
With my limited technical knowledge my guess is that they both using the SPI pins? Is there a workaround for this?
