AFAIAA the Notro Drivers are included in the latest Raspbian release and support the XPT2046acawley wrote:I purchased a 3.5" Touch Screen Display TFT (320*480 pixel LCD) for Raspberry Pi B+ from eBay, just £19 delivered from a UK supplier, turned up promptly and works out of the box as described following the simple instructions which involved writing a pre-configured image of Raspbian to a card. So I am impressed so far!
However not been entirely content with using someone else's OS image from a security perspective (as I don't know the origin) I was wondering if anyone else had purchased one of these and had perhaps pursued finding and installing the drivers themselves onto Raspbian? I could not seem to find the drivers online and so wondered if anyone had tackled this already?
For reference this is the screen I have purchased:
Touch Screen Controller Model: XPT2046

Thank you for your time and help.
Oh wow, that sounds great I can see the "XPT2046" listed on that page in a couple of places (despite the resolutions being slightly different I'm guessing it is the controller & software compatibility that counts). Any further pointers on how I make use of this code if it embedded in the latest release of Raspbian? Will there be an application that will provide easy access to enable drivers for possible LCD models or is it something I will need to enable / tweak configs on the shell for? (I don't mind doing that providing I know what I should be tweaking)fruitoftheloom wrote:AFAIAA the Notro Drivers are included in the latest Raspbian release and support the XPT2046
