[SOLVED] Argon case + script


I put my rpi4 in the argon one case.
They give a script for debian based Os to manage power off, fan speed…

The steps are :

1/sudo wget download.argon40.com/argon1.sh
2/ sudo chmod 755 ./argon1.sh
3/ sudo ./argon1.sh

I try on other debian based os and it works fine.
But here on volumio i receive an error.

    volumio@volumio:~$ sudo ./argon1.sh
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package raspi-gpio
    Please also connect device to the internet and restart installation.

Volumio is wired connected to internet (see screenshot below)
How could i deal with this ?
Thanks for helping.

You would need to install the missing package raspi-gpio, which is not part of the standard Raspbian repository.

P.S. Do so at your own risk.

This case is incredible !
I top to 40° after 2 hours of playing music on my PI4.

Here the guide to install the script

The installation steps :

1/ Connect SSH to volumio
2/ sudo apt update
3/ sudo apt install raspi.gpio
4/ sudo wget download.argon40.com/argon1.sh
5/ sudo chmod 755 ./argon1.sh
6/ sudo ./argon1.sh

Wait the script does the work and try to shutdown volumio using web interface
Then you will have a complete shutdown with power off.

Done !

How to use it :

To manage fan, go SSH use this command and follow the guide provide with the case
