library.properties - in the libraries folder; in my case /home/stephen/sketchbook/libraries/Adafruit_GFX/library.properties
contents are

Code: Select all

name=Adafruit GFX Library
version=1.1.5
author=Adafruit
maintainer=Adafruit <info@adafruit.com>
sentence=Adafruit GFX graphics core library, this is the 'core' class that all our other graphics libraries derive from.
paragraph=Install this library in addition to the display library for your hardware.
category=Display
url=https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-GFX-Library
architectures=*
in your case if the architectures line AVR or something else - it maybe being ignored.
if you haven't got one, it's not.
it was just a thought, however i usually get a warning.
what level of details (compile and upload) have you set in preferences?
