I have another question. I can send the image giraffe.565 to the tft using your recommendation of
sudo tail --bytes 153600 /home/pi/giraffe.565 > / dev/fb1
It works beautifully! I am also learning Qt (tying to expand my horizons a bit), and I do the following:
QByteArray qb = file.readAll();
printf("qb size %d\n",qb.size());
This works, but the image is displayed with a slight offset (I can see mixture of blocks). It seems it is having trouble synching the new lines to the tft screen. So my question is what is the difference between? What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance!
