Put them individually as i have. Mine compiles fine and your should too once the IDE can find nunchuck.h

What shield do you have? You just said motor.. some shield allow multiple things depending on how you set them up.

A motor shield is for motors. a servo shield is for servos. They are not the same.

If the servos are a fairly small size you can control one or two of them for testing directly from the arduino pins.

Check out the servo examples in the playground or in the IDE and most of them tell you where to connect everything to get a servo to sweep or whatever function the example is for.

I just went and installed the libraries. Examples compiles fine for me.

In your libraries folder did you leave the libraries in a "VideoGame"ShielLibraries" folder or did you just move the libraries into the folder individually?

what i have is ...\arduino-1.0.1\libraries\Nunchuck

In looking for a replacement for this i have found a few potential CCFL inverters that output between 275 and 350VAC.

Do you think any of these would work or would it not be worth the attempt to potentially burn out the existing backlight?

go here and go down to contributed libraries and see if you are doing is like this.

Start by posting the error you are actually getting.

HA! Very cool.

I had no idea what to expect when i clicked on this topic.

40  Using Arduino / Displays / LCD Backlight Inverter on: September 14, 2012, 10:57:53 pm
I have scavenged a densitron LCD from another piece of hardware. I also grabbed the LCD ballast from that assembly.

I got it all working good using individual power supplies. Tested good on the display and the backlight.

I attempted to tie them all to my TPM 30105 whicich for some reason was outputting 8Vdc instead of 5vdc. My backlight inverter (DAS5V13) did not like this at all. It worked for a few minutes then went dark.

Before failure i had 5VDC on the input side and 300VAC on the output to the LCD. Now i have 120VAC on the output and no light.

I have been searching for a replacement for the inverter with no luck. My experience with these is limited to the research i did to make this rig work.... My question is, how would i cross reference this to a compatible replacement?

That's not an error. It's an example sketch.

Change the name. It's telling you that you can't have dashes in the folder name.

It may not be in under coma nd lpt right away. Do you see anything saying "unknown device" with a yellow exclamation point that goes away when you unplug your uno?
44  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: New to Arduino/Project feasibility on: September 14, 2012, 09:08:42 pm
MIght sound bad but i think the place for you to start is doing a lot of reading.

i have done quite a few arduino projects of various levels over the years and i have done one android app (not counting "hello world" stuff).

I would have to say this would not be a first project. Even with IT experience and general programming it's a big job.

Perhaps get a starter kit for arduino and work through some projects. Then get eclipse or processing and make a small android app to get your feet wet on how things are handles on the phone side.

Some reading about AVRCP.
45  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Sensing absolute height on: September 14, 2012, 08:38:17 pm
The chassis will be rolling and there will be lots of vibration (engine running and blades turning). Likely running a sort of grid pattern over a patch of ground.

Distance constraint will likely be up to 50ft or so. Height needs to be as close as possible to the set "zero reference". perhaps +/- .25"

water level sound like a very interesting idea..... will have to think about this some..... it would have to be off of the ground so it doesn't get rolled over and chopped by blades though.
