Unable to get 4" xpt2046 screen to work on Recalbox
I have a 4 inch Touch Screen TFT LCD - Model xpt2046. This seems to be a cheap version of the waveshare screen.
I managed to get it to work on RetroPie via following this tutorial: https://www.waveshare.com/wiki/4inch_RPi_LCD_(A)
I have found out that a lot of commands on RetroPie are not available in RecalBox, such as sudo and git, and as you probably already know, the tutorial above naturally doesn't work.
I've tried copying the LCD-Show folder from RetroPie to the root of the Recalbox root, but I'm just not getting anywhere. I've tried googling this with no success of getting it working.
I'm quite new to coding on the pi and setting things up, and was wondering if anyone could explain how to set up this screen in Recalbox. If there is a step by step tutorial from a new install of Recalbox, it would be very appreciated.
Thanks ever so much in advance.
@Zing Thanks for the link. I will try it later on.
@Zing Hi bud.
I tried both setups in that tutorial, but all I get is the same white screen after rebooting.
This is looking like it wasn't meant to be!
Any other suggestions?
@VoxT3R Searching the Forum, in this topic the user seems to refer to the same screen:
@Zing Thanks once again mate. I'll look into this further when I get a free moment.
@Zing Hi again bud.
I tried doing as the link suggested, but I am still left with a white screen after reboot.
Not sure why this is so difficult. Not to worry.
Thanks once again for help and advice.
@VoxT3R Sorry, I have no knowledge to help you further ...
@Zing Thats okay bud. I appreciate your efforts all the same.
