Problem with Pitft software installation for the Pigrrl 2

  • Hi Everyone,

    I am in the process of making the Pigrrl 2. I have completed the build portion of the project and triple checked to make sure that all the connections are solid. I am now on the software stage of the project and I have been experiencing difficulties.

    I have been closely following the pigrrl 2 guide on the adafruit website ( When it comes to installing the PiTFT (fbcp) Support I enter the commands by hitting "F4" and placing them in the command line. The text that is returned upon doing this does not match the pictures on the guide. After this the follow up command returns a message saying there is no such file in the directory referring to "".

    Here is a screenshot of what comes up after entering the commands.

    Please forgive me if this is a simple problem as this is my first time attempting a project like this and I am still unfamiliar with a lot of the info surrounding raspberry pis and things of the sort.
