I am trying to connect a particle sensor to RPi via I2C.
I have added
dtparam=i2c_arm=on to the config.txt file and I have also un-blacklisted I2C.
Using the Serial Python module, I have a script that defines a connection with
/dev/i2c-0 and when I try and run this script in the Linux terminal, I get this message:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "fly_modt.py", line 23, in <module> ser2 = serial.Serial('/dev/i2c-0') File "/home/pi/OPC/serial/serialutil.py", line 282, in __init__ self.open() File "/home/pi/OPC/serial/serialposix.py", line 296, in open self._reconfigurePort() File "/home/pi/OPC/serial/serialposix.py", line 325, in _reconfigurePort raise SerialException("Could not configure port: %s" % msg) serial.serialutil.SerialException: Could not configure port: (25, 'Inappropriate ioctl for device')
I am wondering what is going on and what I need to do in order to get this I2C connection to work.
Also, to add more information to the question, when I use the cat command for i2c-0, I get an Input/ouput error:
cat i2c-0 cat: i2c-0: Input/output error
