  • 10-point capacitive touch control, toughened glass panel, 6H hardness.
  • It uses full lamination and AF anti-fingerprint touch technology, and the use effect becomes better.

Working with PC

This LCD supports Windows 7/8/8.1/10/11 when working with PC via HDMI interface.:

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

2. Connect the HDMI interface of LCD to the HDMI port of PC. About 10s later, you can see that the LCD display properly. If you need to output sound, you can connect to 3.5mm headphones through HP audio output port.


1) When the computer is connected to several different displays at the same time, only this LCD can be used to control the cursor on the main display, so we recommended to set this LCD as the main display.

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

3) Sometimes LCD will flicker because of undersupplying from USB cable of PC. You need to connect an external power supply (5V/2A) to Power port.

Working with Raspberry Pi

Support Raspberry Pi OS / Ubuntu / Kali and Retropie systems for Raspberry Pi.

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 detailed information, please read the following section.

Please download the latest version of the image on the Raspberry Pi official website.

1) Download the compressed file to the PC, and unzip it to get the .img file.
2) Connect the TF card to the PC, and use SDFormatter software to format the TF card.
3) Open the Win32DiskImager software, select the system image downloaded in step 1, and click 'Write' to write the system image.
4) 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.
  • For Pi 4:
  • For others Raspberry Pi:
gpu_mem=512     #If you are using Pi Zero, please change to gpu_mem=256
hdmi_timings=2560 1 10 10 80 1600 1 4 4 4 0 0 0 60 0 128000000 5
The config.txt file should be modified as this.
5) Insert the TF card into the Raspberry Pi.
6) Connect the Touch interface of the LCD to the USB port of Raspberry Pi.
7) Connect the HDMI interface of the LCD to the HDMI port of Raspberry Pi and then power on the Raspberry Pi, it can display normally after waiting for about a few seconds.

Further setting

As this 9-inch HDMI monitor features a higher resolution, for a better touch effect, we recommend you to set the icon and text bigger. We take Raspberry Pi OS (Raspbian) as an example. Note that this setting doesn't be supported by all the OS.

  • Choose Menu -> Preferences -> Appearance Settings -> Defualts -> For large screens: Defaults -> OK.
  • Set the font of the system.
  • Right-click taskbar -> Panel Settings -> Set the size of Geometry.

Disable power saving

If you want to keep the display turning on all the time, you can disable the power-saving function.

Modify file lightdm.conf

sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

Find the [SeatDefaults] option and uncomment the line"xserver-command", modify it as below:


Modify this code to

xserver-command=X -s 0 -dpms
  • -s # –Disable the display protecting.
  • dpms Disable power saving.


sudo reboot

Turn on/ off display

You can turn on/off the display by the following commands:

vcgencmd display_power 0
vcgencmd display_power 1

Keys Introduction

  • On/OFF: Turn on/off the backlight.





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 Waveshare 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 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.


Using a 5V power supply, the working current of turning on the backlight is about 410~580mA, and the current of turning off the backlight is about 170mA.


Depends on the system, if the system has hibernation, the screen will also be black. If it is the official Raspberry Pi system, the default ten minutes or so without action is to have hibernation.
