This is my first time here, so apologies if this ends up in the wrong thread.
I’m getting a project together where I want a Raspberry Pi 3 powered music player installed in my drawing desk with an ADA 3.5" touchscreen connected to the GPIO to control it. Essentially it’ll be like an iPod but wirelessly connecting back to my NAS to pick up all my music. I’m sure people will be thinking, ‘just get an iPod’…! Well, I’ve already got one, that’s maxed out on storage and am looking for a better solution than blu-taking it to the side of the desk. Plus, where’s the tinkering fun?
I can get Volumio working via a larger monitor, but does it support a low res 3.5" screen? And if so, is there a way to get the ADAfruit drivers for the screen shoehorned into Volumio and for it to output via the GPIO and not the HDMI?
I’m fairly new to Linux and don’t know my way around fully as yet, so if it’s possible I’ll need a noob guide of where to go and what to do!
