Yes, but the whole thing was made … worse? By RasPi not being compliant with industry standards of python.
All other systems use
pip to install the latest version of python. Be it 2, 3, 4, 5… what ever.
The Pi needs to me to use
pip3 to install python3 files.
Then, when I install the python2 stuff and am then told the problem is because I haven’t installed the latest version - for python3.
Yet, when I install that, the problem remains.
Then the commands that can be sent to the display not being documented in the python3 stuff. Yet they were a lot of good example files with the python2 stuff.
Don’t worry about it. I’ll get it worked out eventually.
Though as I did say it would be nicer is Sparkfun put a bit more effort in what is supplied.
Even a basic piece of paper with the links to software which is needed to talk to the device.
I’ve now been there and done that and I now have the python3 software.
But still there is a chronic lack of documentation of what commands are; their syntax and what they do.
