Working With Raspberry Pi

Support Raspberry Pi OS/Ubuntu/Kali and Retropie systems.
1) Download the latest image from Raspberry Pi website.
2) Download the compressed file to the PC and extract the ".img" file.
3) Connect the TF card to your PC and format it by SDFormatter software.

4) Write the .img file to your TF card by Win32DiskImager software. Select the system image downloaded in step 1, and click "Write" to write the system image.

5) After the image has finished writing, open the config.txt file in the root directory of the TF card, add the following code at the end of config.txt, then save and quit the TF card safely.

6) Power the LCD with the 5V 3A power adapter.
7) Connect the HDMI interface of LCD to the HDMI port of Raspberry Pi, then power the Raspberry Pi, and wait for a few seconds to display normally.

Working With PC

Support PC Windows 11/10/8.1/8/7 system.
How to use:
1) Use a 5V 3A power adapter to power the LCD.
2) If using HDMI communication, connect the HDMI port of the LCD to the HDMI port of the PC, and it will display normally after a few seconds.

1) Some PCs do not support plug-and-play with HDMI devices. Generally, they can be used normally after restarting the system.
2) Some PCs may cause LCD flickering due to the insufficient power supply of the USB interface. Generally, it is recommended to connect to an external 5V/3A power adapter for use.

Working With Smartphones With Type C Port

1) Power the LCD with a 5V 3A power adapter.
2) Please connect the Type C port of the LCD to the port of the smartphone. After a while, it can be used normally.
Note: Your phone must support the screen wired projection with a Type-C cable before using the Type-C display function.




Add the following command to /boot/config.txt.


Replace the custom image with the image in this directory /usr/share/plymouth/themes/pix/splash.png.


Test environment: 2022-04-04-raspios-bullseye-armhf 32-bit system

Supported models: Support Micro Snow DSI LCD, DPI LCD, and HDMI LCD capacitive touch screen series.

Software Installation

wget https://files.waveshare.com/upload/1/18/Evdev-right-click-emulation.zip
unzip Evdev-right-click-emulation.zip
cd evdev-right-click-emulation
sudo apt install build-essential libevdev2 libevdev-dev
cd 'evdev-right-click-emulation'
sudo cp 'out/evdev-rce' '/usr/local/bin/'
sudo chmod +x '/usr/local/bin/evdev-rce'

Enter the command:

sudo evdev-rce

After running, you can touch and long press to realize the right-click function.

Set Pi

sudo usermod -G 'input' -a pi
echo 'uinput' | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
sudo nano  /etc/udev/rules.d/99-uinput.rules

Add the following content in the "99-uinput.rules":

KERNEL=="uinput", MODE="0660", GROUP="input"

Save and then run the following content in the terminal:

sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
sudo udevadm trigger

and then reboot

sudo reboot

Reboot and then run (no "sudo" )


After running, you can touch and long press to realize the right-click function.

Set Start Up

Enter the terminal

sudo mkdir ~/.config/autostart
sudo nano ~/.config/autostart/right_click.desktop

add in "right_click.desktop"

[Desktop Entry]
GenericName=Enable long-press-to-right-click gesture
Exec=env LONG_CLICK_INTERVAL=1000 LONG_CLICK_FUZZ=200  /usr/local/bin/evdev-rce



It depends on the system, if the system has hibernation, the screen will also be black. If it is the official system of Raspberry Pi, the default is about ten minutes without action to have hibernation.
