IIRC - if I recall correctly

It's probably not installed correctly.

First off, thank you helping me.

Now onto how I installed it…

1. I downloaded the zip file "SerialLCD"

2. My Mac auto unzipped "SerialLCD"  

3. I dragged the unzipped folder "SerialLCD" (with all of it's contents) to "libraries" in my "arudino-1.0.1 folder"

4. I closed the folder

5. I started the Arduino programing (should be the newest version)

6. Then I went  to "open program"  and navigated into "libraries" went into the "SerialLCD"  subfolder and opened up the example "hello world"

7. I tried to verify and got the error codes I listed

Could you please tell me where I went wrong.


Thanks,
Drew R. Davis

I have the newest version of the library, and I have the newest version of the Arduino programing software.

What can I do?

I would really like to use my LCD screen.

Thanks,
Drew Davis

But the library you are using was not provided with the Arduino programming software (IDE) and although it is the 'newest' it probably isn't new enough.

You could start by searching for the phrase you are getting in your error message such as "was not declared in this scope" or "does not name a type".  Note that I left out the part that contains the name of the library in order to widen the search.
