I am very new to the raspberry pi and I have a couple of Adafruit 64x32 RGB LED displays along with the Adafruit RGB LED HAT kit.
I have followed the steps to install and run the linux and python scripts so that I can see the demos on the display. Currently I have only 1 64x32 RGB LED matrix display connected to the HAT.
I have been trying to modify the example "matrixtest1.py" code to add in Font Text but I either get errors or nothing gets displayed.
I have added in the "import ImageFont" line under the other import lines (i.e. "import Image, Import ImageDraw, Import time").
I have "draw.text" commands in such as: "draw.text((10, 10), "test", font=ImageFont.load("arial.pil")
"draw.text((10, 10), "hello", font=ImageFont.load_default())"
"font = ImageFont.truetype("FreeMono.ttf", 15)"
"draw.text((10, 10), "hello", font=font)"
then I have the "matrix.Clear" which causes an error. I can remove and continue on but nothing gets displays other than the rest of the example code.
matrix.SetImage(image.im.id, 0, 0)
Can someone help out a new beginer out?
Thank you - Tim
