  1. Hi everyone, I was able to get my lcd https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IGBDT02/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 to work Im running on Orange Pi zero H2 Armbian Bionic mainline based kernel 4.19.y. Ive tried everything here several times, but for some reason my touchscreen still doesnt work. Ive noticed that when Im running sudo make install in the ads7846 part Im getting something saying " WARNING: modules_install: missing 'System.map' file. missing Skipping depmod" . Is this normal? Other than that I dont understand what Im doing wrong. Also tried sudo modprobe ads7846_device model=7846 cs=1 gpio_pendown=1 keep_vref_on=1 swap_xy=1 pressure_max=255 x_plate_ohms=60 x_min=200 x_max=3900 y_min=200 y_max=3900 . Gives me an error " modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'ads7846_device': invalid arguement" Im greatfull for any help.
  2. Just wanted to give you an update. Thank you Igor. That solved the issue for the LCD to display. I did everything i said in my first message but I changed the Armbian to this version Armbian Bionic mainline based kernel 4.19.y. It worked like a charm. Now I just need to see if my touchscreen is working. Thanks again!!
  3. Hi everyone. I have a problem that maybe you can help me with. I have a 3.5 LCD --- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IGBDT02/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 an Orange Pi Zero running ARMBIAN 5.59 testing Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS 3.4.113-sun8i Ive tried so many different options to get my lcd working. The last steps i took were the following 1.Make SD card with ARMBIAN 5.59 testing Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS 3.4.113-sun8i 2. set up new password and reboot. 3.Edit files /boot/armbianEnv.txt overlays=spi-spidev spi-add-cs1 param_spidev_spi_bus=1 param_spidev_spi_cs=1 /etc/modules-load.d/fbtft.conf fbtft fbtft_device /etc/modprobe.d/fbtft.conf options fbtft_device rotate=90 name=piscreen speed=16000000 busnum=1 gpios=reset:2,dc:18 txbuflen=32768 fps=25 4.Reboot 5. apt-get upgrade. the gpios are wired the according to the pinout from the lcd I got from the link. Still I just have a blank screen. Ive spent 3 days trying different linux versions and different methods. Can any one help me figure this out. I would truly appreciate. Thank you
