Hello all, and thank you for taking the time to check my post.

I'm helping a friend with a project using a programmable LED ribbon, and I can't seem to get it to work right (read: at all).

I tried testing the LED strip with the official support files found here:
http://blog.radioshack.com/2013/06/tricolor-led-strip/

to no avail... The LEDs would light up red only and blink a bit, but that's it. I looked around a bit on Google and found this library for controlling LED strips:
https://github.com/pololu/pololu-led-strip-arduino

but I couldn't get the 3rd party libraries to load for some reason (which is another, completely separate issue).

Anybody have experience working with this product? The power supply I'm using is adequate to power the project (12V). Thanks in advance.
