First huge thanks for this solution and the support you have provided.
I have successfully installed the full package version and had been happily building and deploying code based around adafruit neopixel libs for 2812.
However, I hit a problem as I have described athttp://forums.adafruit.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=52705
Basically when I add in the adafruit neomatrix libs my project no longer seems to boot, simple single led debug in the setup function is not seen to run. All other main loop code has been removed for this investigation.
As the same code seems fine in arduino IDE I must be missing something that is messing with my boot up.
Happy to provide any artifacts that may help, but any ideas where I should be looking?
