  • Re: LCD tft screen 3.2" waveshare
    Can someone tell me how to download the files for Waveshare 3,2" resistif TFT screen to my recalbox. It has been a long time since I touched any flavur of linux.

    I have tried to follow https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/TFT-Screen-SPI-Bus-(EN) but I am stuck at the download and rename part



  • OK I got that done just need help to set fbcp to load on boot I keep getting Kodi to load and its showing on the HDMI and not the 3.2 TFT screen

    @mediccby please give details about your hardware and the release of recalbox you are running.
    If you have very little skills in linux, you should try the unstable recalbox 4.1 release. The 3.2 tft waveshare is supported out of the box thanks to a simple configuration in the recalbox.conf file and config.txt file (fbcp at startup is managed)

    ## fbcp FrameBuffer Copy Program
    ## For small TFT screen on GPIO and SPI
    ## See https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Utility---Use-of-fbcp-for-small-TFT-screen-%28EN%29 for details
    ## Needed for Waveshare 3.2" 3.5" TFT screen, 2.8" Adafruit screen
    ## See https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/TFT-Screen-SPI-Bus-%28EN%29
    ## for support and configuration details needed by /boot/config.txt
    system.fbcp.enabled=0
