install other software

Postby hcgrant » 31 Aug 2019, 13:13

I want to use the pi that's running rune audio for more things. Specifically a python3 program to measure temperature and humidity in the room .
Can anyone give me some ideas how to install python and copy my prog to the pi ?
Ive tried to install python using "pacman -Sy python" but it fails .."conflicting files"
any ideas?

PS ..the interface on my Iphone is great :D

Python is already there in the build. You may need to install some python modules and activate i2c / psi if you use them.

Code: Select all
python scriptname.py
(Pi 3, Ver. 0.4b build 20170229, usage m3u radio streams playlists)

Hi hcgrant & lakeuk,

Yes, Python 2 is also installed, so the following is also valid:
Code: Select all
python2 scriptname.py
Even so, please try to use the format which lakeuk suggested, you will then be using what is know as "Python 3".
Python 2 will probably disappear in the next version of RuneAudio.

Thanks for the answers , btw "python" didnt work but "python2" did.
I'm trying another approach .. Ive downloaded Arch for raspberry pi and I'm setting it up as a general desktop ..GUI etc.
When that's working as i like it I want to use the "cookbook" I've seen here to add rune audio to it. If and when I get that going I'll post it
Thanks again
Hugh
