    Monitor setup - Walkthrough

    As announced the pdf with the installation guide.
    I wrote this down as I did a complete new installation, so it should be pretty complete - c&c welcome.

    Good job thank you.
    In addition, I would like to say that the input event number of the touch screen can be different. In particular, if a mouse or a USB DAC is connected.

    Sure, no problem.
    What I figured out after posting the pdf ist that there are two different versions of the monitor.
    One has two micro usb ports and one hdmi port, all located on the short side.
    Mine only has one micro usb port on the short and one hdmi port on the long side. Additionally it has one gpio port and is directly mounted to the pi.
    This is why i didnĺt mention the part with the event number.
    I will get the other version of the monitor for another project and will then post the adopted walk through for that one.
    BTW - the pdf has problems with breaks in long codes when using copy&paste, does anyone know how to avoid that?

    Thanks a lot! It works!
    I just struggled with point 7 : when you copy all this : "sudo TSLIB_FBDEVICE=/dev/fb0 TSLIB_TSDEVICE=/dev/input/event0
    /usr/local/bin/ts_calibrate" you just have this "sudo TSLIB_FBDEVICE=/dev/fb0 TSLIB_TSDEVICE=/dev/input/event0".
    I have to add manually the second line : "/usr/local/bin/ts_calibrate"

    The same with point 8 and maybe others.

    Maybe you can add "Push set autostart button" after : "and disable ôjiveliteö autostart under ôTweaksö"

    I also change a line in config.txt to enable the spi(but I don't know if it's that which really sold my problem with spi).

    Otherwise, It's great!

    AWESOME!
    Thank you so very much, this solved my issues!
    I still needed to replace input0 with input1 as I am running a USB DAC in addition to the screen and apparently the DAC is dev0... but finally I got everything working!
    Again, thank you for the effort!

    Great & thanks for your responses.
    Meanwhile I got the usb version of the monitor an adopted the pdf. I also copied the long codes into text boxes - so copy & paste should now work correctly.
    Cheers
