I'm trying to install the ABElectronics Arduino librarys into my windows Arduino IDE, with raspberry compiler added, using Sketch/include library/add zip. I get the message "Specified folder/zip file does not contain a valid library" I also tried to install it manually and knothing shows up in the examples folder. Help

To install the Arduino libraries you will need to extract the zip file that you downloaded from github and then go into the Arduino IDE, select the Tools menu > Include Library > Add .Zip Library, and select the folder for the expansion board you are using inside the ABElectronics_Arduino_Libraries folder .  So for example if you want to use the Servo Pi library you would select the ABElectronics_ServoPWMPi folder.  The library should then be installed by the Arduino IDE and show up in the Sketch > Include Library list and the File > Examples list.
