Has anyone Gotten a VFD working on a Pi?

Hello All,
I have a Noritake-iTRON 6 pin VFD

I have been trying to get working with Volumio for a few weeks and …I am feeling quite defeated. it seems that this should be a simple process, however everything i have read and every process i have followed has failed me. So i am reaching out to the Volumio community in hopes that someone who has gone down this path might see it and provide me with some guidance.

the best resource i found was projects-raspberry.com/interfac … pberry-pi/
however his process does not seem to work for me. I have also tried Raspdac (broke the web interface) and Pydpiper
