Is it even possible to run the 7-segment HT16K33 module with Armbian and Orange Pi?

 

I'm trying with I2C and SMBus2 but can not make it work. I can see the module, but it is imposible to communicate with it:

 

sudo i2cdetect -y 0
     0  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  a  b  c  d  e  f
00:          -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
10: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
20: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
30: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
40: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
50: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
60: -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
70: 70 -- -- -- -- -- -- --

Any help will be apreciated. Thank you in advance.

I tried this one based on micropython but when i install trought pip returns many errors:

sudo -H pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ht16k33
...
 error: invalid command 'bdist_wheel'

  ----------------------------------------
  Failed building wheel for Adafruit-Blinka
  Running setup.py clean for Adafruit-Blinka
  Running setup.py bdist_wheel for adafruit-circuitpython-busdevice ... error

...
error: invalid command 'bdist_wheel'

  ----------------------------------------
  Failed building wheel for adafruit-circuitpython-busdevice
...

 

And many more. Also it needs busio and board but can't find it. Also i installed adafruit-blinka alone (https://pypi.org/project/Adafruit-Blinka/) what have busio and board drivers, but it doesn't work either. The instalations is success, but after that the code can't find busio or board:

I think i tried everithing... I don't know where to go....

Thank you for your response.

Or this one:

https://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2018/11/raspberry-pi-7-segment-led-display-module-using-python/

 

orangepi@orangepiplus2e:~/Adafruit_Python_LED_Backpack$ sudo python3 7segment_counter.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "7segment_counter.py", line 32, in <module>
    display.begin()
  File "/home/orangepi/Adafruit_Python_LED_Backpack/Adafruit_LED_Backpack/HT16K33.py", line 53, in begin

    self._device.write(data)
OSError: [Errno 6] No such device or address

 

 

And this one based on SMBus that i installed previously:

https://github.com/emcconville/HT16K33

 

sudo python3 clo.py

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ! Unable to load SMBus            !
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ! Switching to terminal emulation !
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "clock.py", line 9, in <module>
    from _HT16K33 import FourDigit
ImportError: cannot import name 'FourDigit'

 

But does not work either.
