Working with PC

This product supports Windows 11/10/8.1/8/7 OS.:

1. Connect the 12/1A power adapter to the DC interface of the LCD, after connecting the backlight will light.

2. Connect the TOUCH interface of the LCD to the USB interface of the PC. Waiting for a moment, The touch will be recognized by Windows automatically.

3. If you use HDMI, you need to connect the HDMI interface of the LCD to the HDMI port of the PC. About 5s later, you can see that the LCD displays properly. If you need the audio, you can insert 3.5mm earphones into HP ports.

4. Use VGA, you need to connect the VGA interface of LCD to the PC's VGA ports by Mini HDMI to VGA Cable.


1) If multi-screen are connected to one PC at the same time, you can only control the cursor by this LCD, so please set the LCD as the main screen.

2) Some of the PCs cannot support HDMI screen Hot Plug. In this case, restarting the PC can solve.

3) HP audio output only works while using HDMI communication.

4) Mini HDMI to VGA Cable is necessary and needs to be purchased separately if you use VGA communication.

Supports Raspberry Pi OS / Ubuntu / Kali and Retropie systems on Raspberry Pi.

please download the latest version of the image from the Raspberry Pi official website.

1. Download the compressed file to the PC, and extract the img file.
2. Connect the TF card to the PC and use SDFormatter to format the TF card.
3. Open the Win32DiskImager software, select the system image prepared in step 1, and click write to burn the system image.
4. After the programming is completed, open the config.txt file in the root directory of the TF card, add the following code at the end of config.txt, and save it.

5. Connect the 12V power supply to the DC interface of the LCD, and you can see that the LCD backlight is lit normally.
6. Connect the Touch port of the LCD to the USB port of the Raspberry Pi.
7. Connect the HDMI port of the LCD to the HDMI port of the Raspberry Pi, power on the Raspberry Pi, and wait for a few seconds to display normally.

Linux Software Dimming

#Install ddcutil tool:
sudo apt-get install ddcutil -y
#Detect whether it supports DDC/CI monitors:
sudo ddcutil detect
#Adjust the monitor brightness, <value> needs to modified as 0-100.
sudo ddcutil setvcp 10 <value>

Screen installation reference instructions (without case version)

The bonding method between the LCD of the screen and the touchpad is using double-sided adhesive. In order to prevent the LCD and the touchpad from peeling off in some special situations (such as when the screen is installed at an angle), it is necessary to make structural support for the LCD when installation. A reference example you can check below.
【Note】 The assembly materials used below are not included in the shipped kit!! This is only used as a reference for installation and materials.

Part Name:
1. Equipment case
2. Countersunk head machine screw
3. Standoff
4. Adhesive sponge
5. Acrylic board (thickness 5mm and above) 6. Round head machine screw
Assembly instructions
1. Fix the Copper pillar ③ on the back of the Equipment case ① with countersunk screws ②, and then embed HDMI LCD ⑦ into the Equipment case ① and bond it firmly. The countersunk screw holes on the casing will be blocked by the edge of the screen. So the screws cannot be seen on the exterior side.
2. Paste the Adhesive sponge ④ with an appropriate thickness on the Acrylic board ⑤, pay attention to the position of the paste to avoid the PCB board, and finally fix it on the copper pillar ③ with the Round head machine screw ⑥. After assembly, make sure that the sponge is fully attached to the back of the LCD.
3. The opening holes on the acrylic board avoid the components on the PCB board to facilitate the connection between the interface and the device.
Note: The LCD display surface cannot be installed parallel to the ground, otherwise it will fall off under the action of gravity. In addition, when it needs to be installed at an angle, the back of the LCD screen should be kept at least less than 75 degrees from the horizontal.

Keys Description


  1. Turn the LCD on or off. If you don't need the LCD for a long time, you can use this button to reduce consumption.
  2. Direction button.
  3. "OK".
  4. Open the menu and the "Return" function.

Without Case Version

  • Power: Backlight power button. Turns the backlight power on/off. If the LCD screen is not needed for an extended period, use this button to turn off the backlight and reduce power consumption.
  • Menu: Menu button. Press this key to open the OSD menu. While using the menu, it can also function as a confirmation button.
  • Up/Left: Directional key.
  • Down/Right: Directional key.
  • Exit: Exit button.

Test environment: 2022-04-04-raspios-bullseye-armhf 32-bit system
Supported models: Support Waveshare DSI LCD, DPI LCD, and HDMI LCD capacitive touch screen series.Only support 32bit system

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 IP

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

Add in 99-uinput.rules file.

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

save it and run it in the terminal.

sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
sudo udevadm trigger

Then reboot:

sudo reboot

Run after reboot (no sudo needed at this point).


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

Set Startup

Enter the terminal:

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

Add the following 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

#If you want to modify the sensitivity, you can modify the size of the two parameters, LONG_CLICK_INTERVAL=1000 LONG_CLICK_FUZZ=200.



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.

This LCD gets power from two interfaces. One is the POWER port, you should connect a 12V/1A power adapter to this interface, the operating current of this interface is about 12V/0.6A. And the other one is the TOUCH interface. You need to connect this interface to the USB interface of the host, its operating current is about 5V/80mA.



Remove the triode shown in the figure below, and solder the PWM pin on the pad indicated by the arrow on the right

Execute the following command on the Raspberry Pi terminal:

 gpio -g pwm 18 0
 gpio -g mode 18 pwm (occupied pins are PWM pins)
 gpio pwmc 1000
 gpio -g pwm 18 X (X ranges from 0 to 1024), 0 is the brightest, 1024 is the darkest
