Raspberry Pi 7" Touch Screen plugin not working

I am using the Original Raspberry Pi 7" Touch Screen with the touchscreen plugin. I successfully installed and enabled the plugin but the touch screen only displays nothing with a mouse pointer on it (shown in the picture). I am using the Raspberry Pi 3B. I didn’t encounter any errors during installation so I have no idea what is happening. Can anyone helps?

Thanks in advance!

Please provide your Volumio version and the plugin’s version.

Do you see an error message when you enable and/or disable the plugin? If so please post the content of this message.

I suspect the chromium-browser is not starting. If possible connect to Volumio via SSH and post the results of sudo apt list --installed | grep chromium and (with the plugin enabled) of systemctl status -l volumio-kiosk please.

Hi! Thanks for the reply.
My Volumio version is 2.773 and my plugin version is 1.1.8

I don’t see any error messages when enabling or disabling the plugin.

I have followed the instructions as suggested, here is the result.

I am not sure about what the results tell. May I kindly ask for your help and solution? Thank you!

It seems chromium has not been installed. You could try uninstall the plugin and reinstall it. Aside from watching the installation process in the UI you can follow it with sudo journalctl -f and look for error messages regarding downloading and / or installing chromium.

You could also try to manually install chromium with sudo apt-get install -y chromium-browser, but if you don’t mind at first try reinstalling the plugin and watch the installation process so we could discover if there should be a problem in the install script of the plugin.

P.S. If possible copy the text of commands output, logs etc. right from the terminal and paste it here in code tags instead of posting pictures. That would allow me much faster “scanning” and searching for certain information.

Thanks for your prompt reply! I tried to manually install the chromium browser but a dependency is missing, then I tried to install the dependency but it fails.

I then tried to reinstall and enable the plugin again. It seems that some error happens when I enable the plugin. The monitored process in the terminal is shown below. Thank you!

Hi kwokmaster, gvolt

I installed the exact same setup today rpi3 (+ hifi amp2) and 7" official touchscreen with latest volumio and touchscreen plugin.

I only get a grey screen and mouse pointer.
I found out chromium-browser won’t install, tried several times un/installing the plugin without luck.

With some troubleshooting I found a workaround. Looking at install.sh file on github I did the following:

wget http://repo.volumio.org/Volumio2/Binaries/arm/libraspberrypi0_0.0.1_all.deb --no-check-certificate

wget http://repo.volumio.org/Volumio2/Binaries/arm/raspberrypi-bootloader_0.0.1_all.deb no-check-certificate

wget http://repo.volumio.org/Volumio2/Binaries/arm/raspberrypi-kernel_0.0.1_all.deb no-check-certificate

sudo dpkg -i libraspberrypi0_0.0.1_all.deb

sudo dpkg -i raspberrypi-bootloader_0.0.1_all.deb

sudo dpkg -i raspberrypi-kernel_0.0.1_all.deb

rm libraspberrypi0_0.0.1_all.deb

rm raspberrypi-bootloader_0.0.1_all.deb

rm raspberrypi-kernel_0.0.1_all.deb

sudo apt-get install -y chromium-browser

The --no-check-certificate flag did the trick because the repo certificate is not trusted/expired

Hope this can help others too.

@billy_pi Many thanks for the hint!
@kwokmaster Could you try the steps above utilizing the --no-check-certificate flag, too, and report back?

@gvolt The problem is solved! Thank you.
@billy_pi Thank you for the hint!

Reason seems to be that certificates of repo.volumio.org just expired on 2020.05.30. I guess this will be solved so using the --no-check-certificates flag should not become “standard”.

Could it be we just need to use “wget https://…” now? Can someone confirm this? I currently don’t have my Volumio system at hand so I can’t test this.

Edit: “wget https…” also does not work. Error stays the same:
ERROR: The certificate of 'repo.volumio.org' is not trusted.
ERROR: The certificate of 'repo.volumio.org' has expired.

It seems that after I let the touchscreen works, it fails to play my songs…

I think there are some bugs related to the plugin…I will give up using the plugin at the instance and wait for an update.

The installation issue you encountered is not a bug of the plugin but caused by expired certificates of the repo where libraspberrypi0_0.0.1_all.deb, raspberrypi-bootloader_0.0.1_all.deb and raspberrypi-kernel_0.0.1_all.deb are downloaded from. This will certainly be taken care of in the next days.

Regarding your problem to play songs… I would not expect to have the Touch Display plugin this kind of side effect. But if you would describe what happens in more detail and provide logs I would like to have a look at it.

Certificate is fixed.

I just downloaded the version volumio-2.777-2020-05-25 and made a try on the Touch Screen Plugin with my 19" desktop monitor, and I works now!

The steps I did before run the plugin installation:

  1. resize the third partition(mmcblk0p3) and ext4 file system to 3G. The original initialization seems just enlarge the partition and leave the ext4 file system unchanged. This may cause the out of space problem.

  2. login the console and run following commands:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install keyboard-configuration
    (and finish the keyboard layout sellection)

I hope the above information can help. Cheers!
