NOOB Python Script Problem
I'm just a few days into trying to get the Google Voice Hat working with the scripts that Bill wrote a few years back. I had to dig around to find updates since the image has changed so much since the original post by Bill. At this point my Python skills are non existent.
I updated the auth_helpers.py script and changed the last argument in webbrowser.register() (line 75) from "-1" to "preferred=True".
I changed references to a few libraries to what I think are their new names.
import aiy.voice to import aiy.voice.audio
import aiy.voicehat to import aiy.board
I'm down to what I hope is the last error. I'm using the November 2019 AIY build since this is the only one that I can get to boot on my Pi 4, 4GB, 32GB SD. My dumb guess is that the code is looking for the model of my Pi but that it's not defined somewhere because the Pi 4 didn't exist when the code was written. Any insight would help. As I'm a noob, please be as detailed as possible. It's a learning experience for me.
Python 3.7.3 (/usr/bin/python3)
>>> %cd /home/pi/AIY-voice-kit-python/src/examples/voice

"""Run a recognizer using the Google Assistant Library.
The Google Assistant Library has direct access to the audio API, so this Python
code doesn't need to record audio. Hot word detection "OK, Google" is supported.
The Google Assistant Library can be installed with:
env/bin/pip install google-assistant-library==0.0.2
It is available for Raspberry Pi 2/3 only; Pi Zero is not supported.
from google.assistant.library import Assistant
from google.assistant.library.event import EventType
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO

motor1.value = 0
aiy.audio.say('Motor On. Half speed')
motor1.value = 0.5
subprocess.call('sudo shutdown now', shell=True)
aiy.audio.say('See you in a bit!')
subprocess.call('sudo reboot', shell=True)
ip_address = subprocess.check_output("hostname -I | cut -d' ' -f1", shell=True)
aiy.audio.say('My IP address is %s' % ip_address.decode('utf-8'))

Trouble here also. Following your post, my errors are as in attached picture.
I don't know where auth_helpers.py is to edit it.
don't know where libraries are to rename them.
I appreciate any help you might provide.
@ddaved You DO realize that you posted this in the Test Forum and that no one will see your question, right?
Just checking, as I'll be deleting the posts here very soon and I didn't want you to be surprised when it disappeared!

Thank you, Bill. I'll look for the correct place to post. The status of this posting has changed significantly since I made this request. Good health to you.
