Re: Support for I2C LCD 4x20 displays

The camera can only see modules on its own disk. Soz when you import stuff they need to be on the camera.

You need to copy those files from the package you downloaded to the OpeMV Cam's disk. The IDE is just a text Editor. The camera is what actually compiles and runs the code.
