EINK Service start issue (with fix/hack)

Post by frooty4adafruit »

Hi everybody,

I had issues getting the EInk Display service to start. The reason was that it assumed 'mkdir' was in /usr/bin, when in fact it was in /bin on my pi.

I manually altered the following file to reflect the change:

/usr/lib/systemd/system/epd-fuse.service

Also, it should be noted that in the tutorial, Adafruit recommends using a previous build on github, which is unfortunately not available. Fornutately, however, it doesn't appear to be necessary! The demo code worked fine with some small tweaks-- I had to change directories in the python demo code to match directories on the pi.
