when i follow the instructions on setting up the easy servo through sshing into the pi, everything goes good until i hit these commands.....
sudo systemctl enable pigpiod
sudo service pigpiod start
the sudo systemctl enable pigpiod command works
but when i type in this command sudo service pigpiod start and hit enter, it gives me this message.....
job for pigpiod.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
see "systemctl status pigpiod.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
now i'm a total newb at this so im not sure what is going wrong, or how to view the
systemctl status pigpiod.service or journalctl -xe, or how to fix it
any help will be greatly appreciated
hopefully those ''' work lol also the system bundle is a zip file it said not to unpack it.
Also im not sure what the system bundle is needed for lol im trying to accomplish this Anycubic Vyper Parts Swiper - YouTube without usings a mossfet but so far im not even sure my servo is getting power. its plugged in to power but i can still manually move the arm lol and nothing works in octoprint on the easy servo side, the servo wont move or make a noise at all. i made a 5volt adapter that uses a phone wall charger adapter and and old usb charging cable i cut the end off and soldered onto the servo connections, so it has power from that, im not sure if its enough power 5 volts 1 amp i think.
Unfortunately I don't think I will be much help here. I just assisted the plugin author with making the plugin as kind of a tutorial for them. It also appears that @FranFran might be on sabbatical to OctoPrint plugin development.
The instructions to follow are, after the sudo service pigpiod start <-- this trys to start the pigpiod service on the system
command fails, try using the commands sudo systemctl status pigpiod.service. <-- this tells you the status of the service, and briefly why it failed
Then try: sudo journalctl -xe <-- this tells us what the recent system journal contains
(the journalctl command puts the output into a "pager" called less, which you type q to get out of).
Copy the output of those into a reply. They might give you (and us) a clue what is actually failing. Without that, we're all flying blind trying to help you.
