Topic: Arduino IDE can't compile for Sparkfun Thing when I2C Library included (Read 163 times) previous topic - next topic

I've checked all the troubleshooting pages I can find but nothing like this appears.
I had this project running two years ago, but wanted to update it. Since then, I have a new laptop with Windows 10 and latest IDE.  The libraries are the same as were used 2 years ago, except for Blynk.
If I comment out the ADXL345 and I2C libraries, it will compile.  The error report mentions the I2C.
I can't even compile for the starter program.  See below;

/*
#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
#include <BlynkSimpleEsp8266.h>
#include <Wire.h>
#include <SimpleTimer.h>
#include <ADXL345.h>
#include <I2Cdev.h>

void setup() {
  // put your setup code here, to run once:

}

void loop() {
  // put your main code here, to run repeatedly:

}
*/

This is the error log that results from trying to compile this;

I hope someone can help.

Thanks.

Unlike other cores, ESP8266's min function does not allow you to pass it parameters of different type. The version of the I2Cdev library you're using tries to do just this. Luckily, that bug has since been fixed. So all you need to do is update to the latest version of the library and the error will no longer occur. If you need help with that, let me know and I'll provide instructions.

  • Delete C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\libraries\I2Cdev
  • Delete C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\libraries\ADXL345
  • Download the latest version of the I2Cdev library: https://github.com/jrowberg/i2cdevlib/archive/master.zip
  • Unzip the downloaded file
  • (In the Arduino IDE) Sketch > Include Library > Add .ZIP Library
  • From the unzipped folder, select the i2cdevlib-master/Arduino/I2Cdev folder
  • Click "Open".
  • Sketch > Include Library > Add .ZIP Library
  • From the unzipped folder, select the i2cdevlib-master/Arduino/ADXL345 folder
  • Click "Open".


Note that you should never install libraries to the Arduino IDE installation folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino in your case). The reason is that anything you install to that location will be lost whenevery you update to a new version of the Arduino IDE. Instead, you should install libraries to the libraries subfolder of your sketchbook folder. The location of the sketchbook folder is shown at File > Preferences > Sketchbook location. The Arduino IDE's Sketch > Include Library > Add .ZIP Library and Sketch > Include Library > Manage Libraries features will automatically install libraries to the correct location so you only need to worry about this when doing a manual library installation.

You're welcome. I'm glad to hear it's working now. Enjoy!
