Missing rioboard module - Arch linux

5 years 11 months ago #29529763 by QuiXXotic
I cant import the rioboard module on Arch linux.
[root@alarmpi ~]# python2
Python 2.7.8 (default, Sep 24 2014, 05:50:30)
[GCC 4.8.2 20131219 (prerelease)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import rioboard
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named rioboard
>>>

By manually giving this command before python execution the import works.
export PYTHONPATH=/riofiles:$PYTHONPATH

Hello QuiXXotic,

Thanks for sharing the of solution:
export PYTHONPATH=/riofiles:$PYTHONPATH

Another alternative/workaround would be to start Python interpreter from /riofiles directory.

For the next version we will update the install script accordingly to provide the path to "rioboard" at boot time.

Is there any file i can add that line to myself to get it executed during boot? Because i autostart a python script after boot so i need to get that exported during boot.

Hello QuiXXotic,

According to this description " Arch Linux::Environment variables " you can modify one of the following files:
  • "/etc/profile"
  • "/etc/bash.bashrc"
  • "/etc/environment"
Consider also adjusting the PATH variable for your user only (see further in the aforementioned manual)
