My lovely gf bought a new Pi3 and the official 7" touchscreen for christmas, what a gal !!!!
I got it going with some guides I managed to find on the internet, the official link on the box didn't bring me to a dedicated webpage with how to configure it. No official manual in the box. I think the foundation should get this addressed.
Anyway, as I mentioned, it is working of a sort. I put the latest Raspbian on a micro sd, and modded boot config to include lcd_rotate=2, and put an SSH file in the boot, so that ssh is started. The Pi starts up fine, and displays the boot splash, then displays the ssh/change password message. I then have a cursor, and the touchscreen moves the cursor around, but it doesnt boot to the desktop, as I expect. I have left it powered on for a long time, but no desktop
Can anyone please help ???
