I tried to install the Adafruit charlcd library on my Joy-Pi.

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-charlcd

It starts installing, but after a while I get a syntaxerror:

Command "python egg_info" failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-jq7b7n9u/sysv-ipc/

Can you help?

thank you for your message.

We just tested your command with the newest version of our JoyPi image. We could not find any problems though.

Maybe you are using an older version and the problems are caused by that.

You can download the newest image here:

If the problems remain even when using the newest image feel free to contact us again whenever you want.

Yours sincerely,

Niklas Tritschler
