I get the identical result when trying to run the example profiles. What the heck did I do wrong? Ive got all the directories in /home/pi including pexpect-2.3, pipresents, and pp_home (which i copied from the examples folder).
Any help I can get would be appreciated. I would like to set up these rotating content displays outside a few conference rooms.. but i cant even get the example to run! Once I do get it to run, is there any easy way to get it to display html content from a URL? Or does pipresents only display content that is inside the media folders.. ? I guess I am also confused on how to put the content I want on screen.
PIL is the python imagging library. Something has gone wrong with the installation of one of these, probably the first.
sudo apt-get install python-imaging
sudo apt-get install python-imaging-tk
Try installing them again.
You cannot display html content. I believe you can display images e.g..jpg from a url but I haven't tried it. If you want remote web server display or html display then Screenly OSE might be better for you. Pi Presents is more about display of pre-defined images,videos and audio tracks from local folders.
When you get it working use the pp_mediashow example. Look at the profile in the editor and read the manual.
