Watterott RPI display and OSMC

Wed Jul 01, 2015 12:46 pm

Hello

I finally managed to get my Watterott touchscreen to work with my Pi using Raspbian but on booting OSMC the images appears through the HDMI not the touchscreen.

I am new to all this so forgive me if I am a bit naive.

Is there a way to get the OSMC OS to appear on the touchscreen? Will I need to alter code etc?

I have tried searching the forums but cannot see a solution.

Thanks in advance :D

no OSMC will be wanting to output to the display port of the RPi - spi style displays are not going to be fast enough to get videos on them

The display works with OSMC/Raspbmc and you can use the installation script to get it working.
The speed is also fast enough to show videos.

Installation steps:

Code: Select all

$ wget -N https://github.com/watterott/RPi-Display/raw/master/rpi-display.sh
$ sudo /bin/bash rpi-display.sh 270
Note: No FBTFT found.
Update the system now? y/n y
A reboot is needed. Do you want to reboot the system now? y/n y

$ sudo /bin/bash rpi-display.sh 270
Enable TFT display driver and activate X windows on TFT display? y/n y
Activate the console on the TFT display? y/n y
Install fbcp (Framebuffer Copy)? y/n y
Enable automatic startup of fbcp on boot? y/n y
Install xinput-calibrator? y/n n
Install ts_lib? y/n n
Reboot the system now? y/n y

$ sudo nano /boot/config.txt
# add the following lines to force a resolution of 640x480
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=4
