I have a sparky with lcd touch screen.
I have a files volumio-2.348-2018-03-23-sparky_lcd_touch.img for my screen. But I can’t install new version with this screen. I’m french , my english isn’t good, sorry.
volumio-2.348-2018-03-23-sparky_lcd_touch.img has been an image which has obviously specifically been prepared for use with the touch display. The version you can from volumio.org probably is not an needs some manual work.
Enable SSH access (https://volumio.github.io/docs/User_Manual/SSH.html) and connect to Volumio via SSH.
Assuming your display is connected via the DSI connector check if the display driver module is loaded with
lsmod | grep ctp_ft5x06
. Please post the result.
In case the driver should not be loaded check if a file named ctp_ft5x06.ko is in /lib/modules//kernel/drivers/input/touchscreen/FT5406:
ls -al /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/touchscreen/FT5406
If the file should not be either there or maybe in /lib/modules//kernel/drivers/input/touchscreen, I think you would have to manually download and install the necessary files. You could try following Sparky’s instructions (https://github.com/sparkysbc/sparky_linux_images/blob/master/Sparky_LCD_Touch_Volumio.pdf) but I don’t know if they are still valid for the current Volumio image regarding the section “Update sparky drivers:”.
Regarding the installation of the touch display plugin it should not be necessary any more to run
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install keyboard-configuration.
Regarding the instructions to get a virtual keyboard I would recommend commenting the line
in /opt/volumiokiosk.sh and after this line adding
matchbox-keyboard -d &
matchbox-window-manager -use_titlebar no &or substituting “openbox-session &” with the matchbox related lines.
