I've tried multiple times and different ways to install SimpleCV for Python2 on my Raspberry Pi 3. I was able to do this with no problem on RP2.
The first method I tried was using pip:
sudo pip install https://github.com/ingenuitas/SimpleCV/zipball/master
This ended up with the following error:
ConnectTimeout: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='github.com', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /ingenuitas/SimpleCV/zipball/master (Caused by ConnectTimeoutError(<urllib3.connection.VerifiedHTTPSConnection object at 0x76176d30>, 'Connection to github.com timed out. (connect timeout=15)'))
This doesn't make sense because I can ping the site and I'm definitely connected to the internet.
So I moved on and tried to install it using source:
mkdir ~/Code cd ~/Code git clone git://github.com/sightmachine/SimpleCV.git cd SimpleCV sudo pip install -r requirements.txt sudo python setup.py develop
However after installation when i try to run it i get an error about Scipy:
ImportError: No module named scipy.ndimage
So then I tried installing Scipy, which literally said it could not find any files associated with Scipy.
I'm pretty much exhausted of ideas here, I don't understand why none of this isn't working, whether a module changed or if there is something wrong with my Pi. How can I troubleshoot this issue?
