Working with Raspberry Pi

Supports Raspbian/Ubuntu mate/Windows 10 iot Core

When working with Raspberry Pi, you should set the resolution of the LCD by yourself, or else the LCD screen will not work. For more detail information, please read the following section.

Download the Raspbian image from Raspberry Pi web site. Write the image to a TF card and append the following lines to the config.txt file which is located in the root of your TF card:

max_usb_current=1
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=82
hdmi_cvt 1920 1080 60 6 0 0 0

You must make sure that there are no spaces on either side of the equal sign.

Connect the Touch interface of LCD to USB port of Raspberry Pi

Connect the HDMI interface of LCD to HDMI port of Raspberry Pi

Save and connect the TF card to your Pi then power up.

Rotation(Working with Raspberry Pi)

Display Rotating

Add this statement in the config.txt file (the config file is located in the root directory of the TF card, which is named /boot):

display_rotate=1 #1:90;2: 180; 3: 270

Note: For Raspberry Pi 4, you need to comment out dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-V3D.

#dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-V3D.

And then restart the Raspberry Pi after saving.

sudo reboot

Touch Rotating

After the display is rotated, the position of touch is incorrect because the touch doesn’t change with the display angle. So the touch also needs to be modified.

1.Install libinput.

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-libinput

If the system you installed is Ubuntu or Jetson Nano. The installation code is:

sudo apt install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics

2.Create the xorg.conf.d directory under /etc/X11/ (if the directory already exists, proceed directly to step 3).

sudo mkdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d

3.Copy the 40-libinput-conf file to the directory you created just now.

sudo cp /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/

4.Edit this file.

sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.conf

Find the part of the touchscreen, add the following statement inside, and then save the file.

Option "CalibrationMatrix" "0 1 0 -1 0 1 0 0 1"

Similar to the picture below:

5. save and reboot your Pi

sudo reboot

After completing these steps. The LCD could rotate 90 degrees both display and touch function.

Note:

90 degree: Option "CalibrationMatrix" "0 1 0 -1 0 1 0 0 1"

180 degree: Option "CalibrationMatrix" "-1 0 1 0 -1 1 0 0 1"

270 degree: Option "CalibrationMatrix" "0 -1 1 1 0 0 0 0 1"

Screen installation reference instructions

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. Copper pillar
4. Adhesive sponge
5. Acrylic board (thickness 5mm and above)v 6. Round head machine screw
7. HDMI LCD
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.
