I was getting going with my new shield bot and on Windows 7 using version 1.0.5 of the IDE. I imported the shieldbot library using:
Sketch->Import Library->add library…
and ran into the problem that the complier couldn’t find the Shieldbot class defined in the library.
The problem was that there were too many levels in the directory structure of the .zip file. It was:
for it to work. I just copied the Shieldbot directory directly to my Sketches/libraries directory and it work.
Just posting in case anyone else runs into the same problem. Or if the guys who maintain the library want to change the zip file directory structure.
