Astro Pi tutorial problem

Mon Aug 31, 2015 9:45 am

The instructions here https://www.raspberrypi.org/learning/ge ... /software/ are incomplete! The missing step is sudo pip-3.2 install pillow - without this python 3.2 will complain that it can't find the imaging library module.
Can someone please update the tutorial page?

I ran into this same issue (it still doesn't list the pip install pillow step)
Having done pip install pillow i got a subsequent error when running the test program
ImportError: No module named Image

Help - I'm stuck and don't know what to do :)!

OK I worked it out - the instructions by the way are incorrect on the learning page https://www.raspberrypi.org/learning/as ... oftware.md because they miss the instruction to pip install pillow (I think the instructions elsewhere have been updated, but not on the 'learning' section)

My mistake was that I did the pip install of Pillow, but also added a 'import Image' into my code by mistake (I was copying from something else) - without the 'import image' in the code all was well.

Would be good to update https://www.raspberrypi.org/learning/as ... oftware.md because it is the thread I think that a lot of new users of the sensehat will follow.

Love the hat!! Just have to decide the best project to make now :)
