Hello!

First thanks for all of the development.

I'm trying to use one generic 2550 board with the pinguino but it don't work. I try in Windows XP and Ubuntu 8.04. I also try the rules for ubuntu 8.10.

Exist any support forum or community?

Thanks :D

PD: The board used is the LCD2550 who have in my blog.

Hi,

Thanks for using Pinguino and hope it will be useful for you.

Your generic card works.

First program the 2550 with the bootloader. Hex file for the booloader is on www.hackinglab.org/pinguino/download/
I think your card has a 20 Mhz crystal.

Second put a pull-up resistor beetween Vcc and RA4 ( Pin 5 ) and a NO switch beetween RA4 and ground. This switch will be the Run switch.

All is ready now.
Reset the Pic,
Download the program with the IDE,
push the run button.

it blinks ?

Hello,
I've just tried your projet under Windows XP and It works perfectly ! ;-)
However, I would like to mention that to avoid the problem "pic not found !!" while trying to upload a hex file generated with the environnement you need to proceed as Follow (once your board is ready):
1/ download and install Python
2/ download and install wxPython
3/ download and install PyUSB
4/ download and uncompress the driver
5/ Connect you board and configure it with the driver
6/ DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL LIBUSB-WIN32
7/ Download and uncompress Pinguino

Doing like this will prevent you from the "pic not found" issue !
Then, Enjoy ;-))

Thanks JC for this step by step description of the windows installation.
Sometimes, it is necessary to install libusb-win32 before pyusb and sometimes it must be installed after.
I haven't yet understood why, but a simple solution is to re-install libusb-win32 if the board is not found.

Have fun

Jean-Pierre
