I have have only tested this on a Raspberry Pi 3 running Debian Jessie, but it may work on other versions and flavors.
Strong recommendation: Do not bother downloading the so-called "driver" noted in various places. The version for Debian Jessie is really just a script that copies configuration files (that seem to have some errors) into your /etc/ directories that brick your device. Happily, there is no need to do this, you can easily modify the files yourself.
Prior to connecting the new display, do the following:
The only software you need is for the touchscreen. You can get this with "sudo apt-get install xinput-calibrator"
Then edit /boot/config.txt to add the following lines:
hdmi_cvt 800 400 60 6 0 0 0
dtoverlay=ads7846,cs=1,penirq=25,penirq_pull=2,speed=50000,keep_vref_on=0,swapxy=0,pmax=255,xohms=150,xmin=200,xmax=3900,ymin=200,ymax=3900 <======Note this is all on 1 line!
Shutdown the pi, and connect the display. When you power it back up, you should have a perfect display. You can now calibrate the touchscreen by running Menu-->Preferences-->Calibrate Touchscreen. Click each of the four targets when requested and then you will get a text window which explains what you should put into a calibration file. For the Pi, the filename should be /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf.
And presto, you are done. I bricked my Pi 4 times getting this figured out...it is silly how easy it is once you know what needs to be done.
Not a bad little display.
Successfully configured with -
Raspbian Jessie with PIXEL
Image with PIXEL desktop based on Debian Jessie
Version: September 2016
Release date: 2016-09-23
Kernel version: 4.4
Open terminal and update the repositories:
1. sudo apt-get update
An upgrade to the whole system isn't needed but it is recommended:
2. sudo apt-get upgrade
Now for the configuration:
3. Open terminal and use the command: sudo nano /boot/config.txt
4. Copy and paste this into the /boot/config.txt
hdmi_cvt 800 480 60 6 0 0 0
5. Ctrl + x and confirm file name(dont change name) press enter, type y and press enter to save changes.
7. Install touchscreen software w/ command: sudo apt-get install xinput-calibrator
8. Calibrate the touchscreen by selecting Menu-->Preferences-->Calibrate Touchscreen (You will need to *use the stylus provided* with the screen and as accurately as you can select the circle inside of the X for the 4 X's that pop up during the calibration). After you do that for the 4 X's dont do anything else until it finishes loading
9. After calibration finishes loading an LXTerminal window pops up! Make sure to read that window it will tell you what to copy to your calibration file so that it saves! (Otherwise you will be resetting calibration on every reboot).
However it does NOT say where to put the calibration changes for the distro i am running
The location to save the output for your calibration is: /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf
10. Type the command: sudo nano /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf
and paste the calibration output into this file.
11. Ctrl + x and confirm file name(dont change name)press enter, type y and press enter to save changes.
Note: If you somehow mess up while calibrating the touchscreen just use the command
Apt-get remove --purge xinput-calibrator, then reboot and reinstall it. (What I did anway)
**Adding a virtual keyboard:**
12. sudo apt-get install matchbox-keyboard
13. sudo reboot
14. Open Menu>Accessories>Keyboard (Should now be listed)
Also: OOB screen resolution is wrong, but this is not the screens fault.
However it is a good thing it works OOB because if this was the only screen you had you could still get it working with this configuration process.
touchscreen functionality stopped working :( have tried re-calibrating and still doesn't work
Low power requirement, USB powered.
Crisp Screen, very sharp and bright.
Needs a good hdmi cable if your using the hdmi port, a couple cheap cables produced garbage on the screen/white/blank screens. (not really a con, just something I observed)
Does not work with raspberry pi out of the box, have to change some settings. (see below)
Getting it to work with Recalbox:
After some searching, I found the right settings for my config.txt
All you have to add is the following to your config.txt
#increase HDMI signal strength (just a black screen if not set!)
#remove black borders
#set specific CVT mode
hdmi_cvt 800 480 60 6 0 0 0
#set CVT as default
And you are up and running.
Note, in recalbox you may have to edit some config files to force the emulators to use your default setting. Use your google fu to find which ones.
I can't comment on the touchscreen as i'm currently not using it, but may revise this review later.
