3,5 touch screen help pls

Fri Jun 03, 2016 10:39 pm

hey

Image
i need help i order this kind of screen and box for me.

I thought it can't be so hard to install and at least i have screen so i don't have to change my hdmi cabel between rpi3 and rpi2 all the time.
so.... does it need any special installation if i am using pimusicbox image on my rpi2 sdcard... i mean does i need anything else than just install that screen and put power on?
i google it "how to install 3.5 touchscreen on raspberry pi" and all the guides need lite version of jessies image....
how about musicbox system?
i need to write at least something on console?

Before anyone can try to help, we're going to need to know the make/model of the LCD screen in question. At the very least, a photo of the back so we can read any text on there and see the pinout.

Note that quite a few of those screens require you to use a custom Raspbian image from the supplier, or at least a custom kernel.

xpt2046 on the chipset on the back? don't worry! it's fully supported and you'll get it working in no time at all!

there are many of these 3.5" TFT touchscreens flooding the market - i have several and they all work great!
