  1. Hey @chwe, thanks for the detailed answer! I was having a hard time trying to understand the difference between mainlike and kernel, with their desktop / cli versions, but you explained it very clearly. I managed to get the display working after a while. I've detailed my steps in this thread. Thanks a lot for your help and attention!
  2. Some commands that might be useful for debugging: Running a program as a new window through SSH: DISPLAY=:0.0 {program name} Running the program as "full screen" (no desktop environment): First we need to find the executable path. You can find it with "whereis". I'll use "glxgears" to illustrate: whereis glxgears You'll get something like: The executable is usually in a "bin" folder. For glxgears the path is /usr/bin/glxgears. Now we can run the program with startx through the framebuffer we're using for the screen: FRAMEBUFFER=/dev/fb0 startx /usr
  3. Hey guys, I've spent the last couple of weeks trying to get a TFT display with touch screen to work on my Orange Pi PC board, and I've decided to share my step-by-step solution here. This tutorial is heavily based on Guide: How to use Touchscreen + LCD on H3 devices by Kutysam, but I had to do some extra steps for it to work properly. This tutorial is only for Mainline kernel, I was able to get the graphical screen working with Kutysam's guide for Legacy, but couldn't make the touch work. First of all this is the display I'm using: LCD module Pi TFT 3.5 inch (320*480) Touchscreen
  4. Hey chwe, thanks for the replies! I will give Debian_stretch_next a try then when I have a little spare time. Just so I can understand, both Debian_stretch_next and Debian_stretch_next_desktop are mainline, the only difference being the GUI? I was under the impression that GUI images were legacy and CLI images were mainline. I'll post the results as soon as I have something!
  5. Isn't legacy Armbian_5.38_Orangepipc_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113_desktop ? That's what I got from the download page. In the box where the display came in there is a label that says "Driver: ILI9486", but from what I've seen this is a waveshare 3.5" display clone, and apparently it works with ADS7846 touch screen driver. The display itself worked with no problems by just configuring fbtft.
  6. Greetings all. I've bought an Orange Pi PC recently, along with this screen, and I wanted to make the touch screen work on it. I have tried following this tutorial and this one, but so far I was only able to get the screen working. Currently installed image is: Armbian_5.35_Orangepipc_Debian_jessie_default_3.4.113. When I run `evtest` the only devices detected are `vmouse`, `sunxi-gpiokey` and `sunxi-ths`. I tried installing a GUI with xorg, lightdm and xfce. To show the GUI on the display I am using the following command: FRAMEBUFFER=/dev/fb8
