    alright... you have to download and install this library
    https://github.com/fdebrabander/Arduino-LiquidCrystal-I2C-library
    or install it trough the IDE(?)

    instead of the normal library include at the start you put this
    #include <LiquidCrystal_I2C.h>

    at line #41 you put this instead
    LiquidCrystal_I2C lcd(0x27,16,2);

    at lines #238 #239 #240 you put this instead (i put the initialization after, it works)
    lcd.begin();
    lcd.backlight();
    initializeGraphics();

    it works with the latest(?) I2C controller with the 3 solderable pads to select a different I2C address (not needed), they are under the potentiometer (that it's better to adjust)

    you welcome, if you are talking about vintage VFDs (tube or pack) i would really like to know if it works ok or not (it should, in my opinion) if you remember it, come back... maybe power the CD4017 with ~16 volts if they require more juice
