Hello OrangePi Community,

I've got actually an Orange PI PC+ and i was wondering if there's a way to install GPIO in OpenElec ?

Regards.

Pins are accessible trought sysfs. If you meant something like python libs, then you are right and there is no plugin yet. If you have time, you can help create one.

Can i use them to control my fan ? as i've got one.

If yes could you help me to do so ?

Thanks.

I misconfigured GPIO module, so for now, you have to load driver first (it will be fixed soon):
  1. modprobe gpio_sunxi
Copy code

then check sysfs for all available pins (depends on script.bin):
  1. ls /sys/class/gpio_sw
Copy code

Choose one, for example PA0. Set it either to input (0) or output (1). This will set it as an output:
  1. echo "1">/sys/class/gpio_sw/PA0/cfg
Copy code

If you set it as an output, you can set state of the pin with writing 1 or 0:
  1. echo "1">/sys/class/gpio_sw/PA0/data
Copy code

Otherwise, you can read it:
  1. cat /sys/class/gpio_sw/PA0/data
Copy code


Please know that all these informations are based on a driver, so please tell if it works or not.

Hello jerneg and thanks for your fast answer!

I followed your steps but i haven't been successful turning the fan on.i even activated all the pins via the two commands:

> echo "1">/sys/class/gpio_sw/PA0/cfg
> echo "1">/sys/class/gpio_sw/PA0/data

The FAN still off, is there schema of the pins and their numbers ?

Yes, search the forum or check schematic, which you can find on official site in download section.

I quickly created WiringOP GPIO plugin from https://github.com/WereCatf/WiringOP Install appended zip as a plugin from Kodi and reboot. Then you should have familiar gpio command.

Please report result. If it works, I will add it to repository.

Hola jernej and sorry for the delay of my answer.

The installation was successful in OpenElec but i haven't been able to control it and when i put the fan on the first pins it's on by default and you can't put it off...

Weird, I can't make sensible readings with my multimeter. I must take a deeper look.

Copy code

Now, you must select pin appropriatelly. For ordinary gpio functionality, you can only use pins under "wPi" column on both side. For example, lets use physical pin 40, which coresponds to wPi 16. First we have to set direction. This is easily done by:
  1. gpio mode 16 out
Copy code
After that you can switch between 3.3V and 0V by using command
  1. gpio write 16 1
Copy code
or
  1. gpio write 16 0
Copy code
, respectively.

Is this all you wanted or do you want to use PWM for precision fan regulation?
