So I just received this in the mail today and was messing with it trying to get an RGB common anode LED to light.
I hate to sound noobish (oh i clearly am), but i'm having a hard time getting it to register on my pi. I've installed i2ctools and python-smbus using debian wheezy. I'm having some trouble with the i2c address. I didn't solder any jumpers so it should be 40 according to the tutorial online.
Here is what I ran on the pi, I'm not getting an address for an existing i2c bus. http://imgur.com/N9sZE
I know you have expressed not to connect the 5v to power the board, but since the pi is able to power an led off it's pwm pins I thought it would be ok to power 1 led from the board via the pi's 5v. (I'll have a dedicated 5v 2ma once i scale.) Here is my wiring diagram.http://imgur.com/4gRzk
I know this won't help, but here is the hardwire version. I soldered my jumpers into 0,1,2 PWM | 0 V+ on adafruit board. I also soldered the breadboard piece to GND, OE, SCL, SDA, VCC, and V+. http://imgur.com/24n9L
Any help for a NOOB would be grateful.
