Hi,

The instructions on https://8086.support/?action=faq&cat=13&id=120&artlang=en should work - if not let me know and I'll update them.

Chris.

ah so the instructions above arent working on ubuntu server 20.10 on the pi.

apt install git libusb-1.0-0-dev python-usb python-libusb1 python-smbus

Reading package lists... Done

Building dependency tree       

Reading state information... Done

Package python-smbus is not available, but is referred to by another package.

This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or

is only available from another source

Ah, thanks for letting me know,  as Ubuntu 20.10 uses Python 3 you can install using "sudo apt install git libusb-1.0-0-dev python3-usb python3-libusb1 python3-smbus python-is-python3" (I've updated the FAQ entry).

Chris.
