Library not showing in Installed Libraries
Jun 5th, 2019 at 9:21pm
 
I'm trying to use this library.
https://github.com/johnrickman/LiquidCrystal_I2C

I've installed it from the Arduino IDE just fine and it shows up.

I switched over to Visual Studio 2017 with Visual Micro and everything was doing great until I needed to use this library.

I removed it from the Arduino\libraries folder and installed it using Visual Micro. It says it installed but never shows up in any of the lists though it should be in the User Installed list.

If I try and install it again it says it's already installed.

All the other User Installed libraries I install in the Arduino IDE are showing up in the list.

I have version 1906.3.0 of Visual Micro installed on VS Community 2017 Version 15.9.12.

Any help would be most appreciated!

Thanks,

Jeffery

The library.properties file in the library says it is for avr only. Which board are you using? The arduino ide often shows libraries that don't work. It you want to force it to be displayed for non-avr hardware then change architectures=avr to architectures=* and then click Rescan or restart IDE

name=LiquidCrystal_I2C
version=1.1.4
author=Frank de Brabander
maintainer=Marco Schwartz <marcolivier.schwartz@gmail.com>
sentence=A library for I2C LCD displays.
paragraph= The library allows to control I2C displays with functions extremely similar to LiquidCrystal library. THIS LIBRARY MIGHT NOT BE COMPATIBLE WITH EXISTING SKETCHES.
category=Display
url=https://github.com/marcoschwartz/LiquidCrystal_I2C
architectures=avr
