=========================
 
 
 
 
  C:\Users\Russ>pip install wxPython
 
  Collecting wxPython
 
    Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement wxPython (from versions: )
 
  No matching distribution found for wxPython

Well, not so bad.  Useful to know that my Spyder already had wxpython, came with it or I installed, who knows.  Also useful to know wxpython is called wx.  This helps a lot.
 
 
 
== This works ==
 
 
Download the file from github, the zip file.  Unzip.  Ignore a bunch of the stuff and take the
 
 
        \instrumentino
 
        from ( ........\instrumentino-master\instrumentino )
 
        and copy it to the place where your spyder projects live ( making a new project  instrumentino  )
 
 
Find the file:
 
          ......\SpyderP\instrumentino\__init__.py
 
 
and modify the top to:
 
 
          from __future__ import division
 
         
 
          import sys
 
          sys.path.append( ".." )
 
         
 
          #...... rest of file
 
 
This should make it run.
 
 
To do much more it seems you need an arduino.
 
 
== Clean Install on Mint ==
 
 
Installed spyder

Install

Misnomer I do not want to really install it I want compile it and run on my Uno. See Russ's Computer Environment

Ton of files ( well maybe 10 ) on gitHub. Seems the only one that matters much is controlino.cpp. Download it. Make a new arduino project. I called mine controlino_ino. In its file controlino_ino.ino paste the contents of controlino.cpp. Follow the directions in the file. Compile. Worked the first time. Now have something on my uno. What?
