Hi folks, I was following Bill's project, using a raspberry pi 3b+ and a 2.7 inch e paper screen, configuration epd2in7b_V2. 

There is a config file, paper.ini in the paperpi folder where you change the line display_type from none to your screen size.

After saving the file I run the program, ./paperpi/dist/paperpi

I get an error where it fails to load the driver for the screen. All the drivers are loaded in the e-Paper folder.

When I test the screen in the examples folder in e-Paper, it works fine.

Any help in getting the driver to load would be greatly appreciated.
