New user to the forum

Thanks gvolt it is working!
Apologies for the delay in replying
Tried posting, but admin message states I have exceeded my quota as a new user?

It seems as a newbie, I cannot post PM’s or post more than 20 times. Then have to wait another 21 hours?
Frustrating for all.
Assume it is an anti-spamming measure!

:+1: Great!

Is touch properly aligned to the display?

Frustating for sure, but I agree this is probably for spamming protection.

I am not using touch at the moment, TBH just wanted a screen to display “what’s playing” as using the android phone app to control
Can now see the pitfalls of this screens resolution.
I have another screen. A 3.5 inch Waveshare copy.


Think this is the link with the most info https://community.volumio.org/t/volumio-with-3-5-tft-touch-screen-gpio-rpi-3b/11265/275

So will give it a go tonight. Any pointers would be grateful.
Thanks again! :+1:

Looks like this display.

You can simply follow the instructions outlined in post #10. Only the curl commands in step 2 would need some adaption:

sudo curl -L https://github.com/goodtft/LCD-show/raw/master/usr/tft35a-overlay.dtb -o /boot/overlays/tft35a.dtbo

sudo curl -L https://raw.githubusercontent.com/goodtft/LCD-show/master/usr/99-calibration.conf-35-90 -o /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf

sudo curl -L https://raw.githubusercontent.com/goodtft/LCD-show/master/usr/99-fbturbo.conf -o /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-fbturbo.conf

And of course the content of “/boot/userconfig.txt” has to be adapted to the different overlay:

cat >> /boot/userconfig.txt <<EOL

dtparam=spi=on
dtoverlay=tft35a
EOL

Thanks for the pointers gvolt!

Fantastic.
Worked first time, you are the man!
