I'm a complete newbie with both Rabperry Pi and electrical circuits, so this is most likely a rookie mistake.
I'm using a Raspberry Pi 3B with a breadboard, I connected a simple LED:
The resistor I used is 330R.
I placed the longer leg of the LED with the transistor row (row 26).
I then turned on pin 17 using this the virtual file system:
echo 17 > export
echo out > direction
echo 1 > value
But the LED does not turn on.
I know the LED is working, because I tested it with a CR2032 battery.
Maybe my circuit is wrong?
Maybe this is not the correct method to turn on pin 17?
Maybe I need to somehow "turn on" ground pin?
Any help will be appreciated
