I am using the Raspberry Pi 3B with an LPD8806 LED strip wired as follows:
Pi Pin 19 = Data in of LED strip
Pi Pin 23 = Clock in of LED strip
The GND and +5V are wired properly into an adapter. The GND is also wired to Pi Pin 6 (ground) (I know that the adapter works because it is powering the pi as well).
When I turn on the pi (and thus the LED strip), two LEDs light up somewhere in the middle - one pinkish-purple and the other a light orange (right next to each other). I cannot control it, and I am trying to use lightshowpi (lightshowpi.org). I have run all the test programs I can find.
How can I control the strip?
