I have installed the PiFace board but get "ImportError: No Module named piface.pfio" as an error when ever I try running my coded masterpieces in IDLE3.
However - running the emulator + canned test scripts works as does running my programmes after changing chown on my filename.py to root and running as sudo - which would indicate that the board and drivers are all ok.
It seems to be a permissions issue.
I have tried (three times now) doing a clean installation of Raspbian + updates and then installing the PiFace board as per the manufacturers instructions.
This ought to be simple but I just cannot get this to work properly.
I can confirm that PI is a member of the SPI user group.
Can anyone please help?
Update: If i write a .py program in vi (as pi user) and run 'python filename.py' as pi user the PiFace board works. If I try doing that in IDLE I get the error - it's as though IDLE doesn't know how to link to the PiFace libraries... Is this fixable?
