Re: Multiple Displays at once

Yeah , it seems like all USB DisplayLink adapters require a kernel recompile. At least that was case for a long time: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=12761 ghans I meant, would you recommend/approve of that display, or would you have other suggestions/recommendations?

Re: Multiple Displays at once

Yes , this is possible. Insist on displays supported by the fbtft driver even if they are more expensive. Do not settle for devices which only work on vendor-supplied images. ghans Thanks! Do you have any recommendations for USB touchscreen displays which use the tbtft drivers? I would like to keep...

Multiple Displays at once

Can the RPi (B+) handle multiple displays at once? As in, is it possible to configure it to use HDMI as the main display and maybe using a GPIO display or a USB display (like the one linked below), have it show something else ? http://www.dfrobot.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=10...

Re: cool-old-term - Will it run on a Pi ?

Is it worth buying another pi and putting Debian Jessie testing just to see if it would work ? As in, how likely is it that it will compile and work assuming QT5 runs well on those distros ?

Re: cool-old-term - Will it run on a Pi ?

I cant compile it for arch as I only have 1 pi and Its running Debian and being used at the moment as a home server.

Does anybody know if QT5 works well on the Pi, or not yet ?

cool-old-term - Will it run on a Pi ?

Hey, does anybody have any idea if "cool-old-term" would work on a raspberry pi ? https://github.com/Swordfish90/cool-old-term Its an old school styled, yet fully functional terminal emulator. Would you be able to complie/build it on a raspberry pi/ARM, or is it only for x86 architectures ...

Re: 1080Pi a FULL HD LCD touch add-on board

The smaller screen looks like it might be perfect for a project I'm planning. I'm curious about how it would be powered and the current draw. I'm looking for a touchscreen that can completely be powered over GPIO. All the ones I've seen are around 3inches or so when 5 inches would be perfect for me.

Thanks, I guess the next step is to buy the components and built it while hopeing I dont release any magic smoke on the way.

Re: PiTFT + DS18B20 GPIO Questions ?

I'm slightly confused. So according to that chart, the pins in use by the PiTFT would be the 19,21,23,24,25,26 ? Which means that I should be able to run both in tandem without issues ? EDIT: If you dont want to expand the thumbnail: red is PiTFT , Blue is DS18B20 . http://i.imgur.com/MLQaUoK.png

PiTFT + DS18B20 GPIO Questions ?

Hey, im planning a project with the raspberry pi, and I have a question about the GPIO Pins availability. I will want to use the PiTFT and the DS18B20 temperature sensing chip at the same time. The DS18B20 uses the Ground , 3V3 power, and GPIO4 pins. The PiTFT uses hardware SPI pins ( SCK, MOSI, MIS...

Re: B+ GPIO screen power usage

Ah yes, based on this:

http://www.adafruit.com/products/1601

I would assume that they are in the ball park of around 100mA. Thanks for your reply having knocked some sense into me.

B+ GPIO screen power usage

Hey, what would the current draw be for a raspberry pi B+ with one of those small generic GPIO screens attached to them ?
