Adafruit_NeoPixel does not name a type

by rcichew on Tue Oct 29, 2013 6:30 pm

Keep getting the name type message. Tried Adafruit_NeoPixel strip = Adafruit_NeoPixel (8, 6, NEO_GRB + NEO_KHZ800); Using Adafruit 8 NeoPixel stick and pin 6 and Adafruit NeoPixel library. Checked to be sure NeoPixel h and cpp are in the right folders. Ist time using NeoPixel. What did I miss?

Also several "strip' was not declared in this scope"

Still sounds like the library's not correctly installed. Where is it located, and is it nested inside other folders or anything? Also, restart the Arduino IDE.
