wget http://pi.cs.man.ac.uk/download/install.txt | bash
all that command is doing is download install.txt and pipe it to bash.
you wrote command wrong?
try do it manually with these commands(this is what install.txt looks inside)
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python3-pifacedigitalio python-pifacedigitalio
sudo apt-get install python3-pifacedigital-emulator python3-pifacedigital-scratch-handler
First of all, I appreciate your replying to my question. I ran the 3 commands manually as you suggested and they seemed to run OK. I rebooted the pi
and again entered the command piface/scripts/piface-emulator and received the same error message as before. The really screwy part is that when I tried
the 3rd command again since I assume it is the line that installs the emulator, the system responded with a message indicating that the latest version of the
emulator was already present and so the command ended without installing or changing anything. I'm beginning to wonder if the emulator is there but
maybe there is some file permission problem preventing it from running. Would you know the full pathname to the "piface-emulator" file so I can see if it was
installed or not ?
The get started guide you referenced is out of date. See here:
After installing the software and restarting, login and startx.
Start the PiFace emulator by typing in a Terminal:
Or click on the Desktop icon
Thank you so much. I tried both ways of bringing up the emulator and both attempts were Successful
I purchased a Raspberry Pi and PiFace Digital board and was attempting to follow the steps in the PiFace Quick Start
Guide (http://www.element14.com/community/docs/DOC-53057). After executing the "sudo apt-get" and "wget" commands on
page 2, I rebooted the Pi and attempted to start the emulator by typing the command "piface/scripts/piface-emulator in a terminal.
The system responded with the error message "bash: piface/scripts/piface-emulator: No such file or directory", Anybody have any
idea of what the problem is ? BTW: I don't think this has anything to do to do with my problem but before I executed the steps
above, I first followed the same guide on another web site which had some typographical errors, specifically the "wget" command
had some extra options (i.e. -o - ).
