    PiTFT support

    Hello,

    I am struggling to use the script available on Adafruit to install PiTFT 2.8, on a headless PCP (have tried it on a stock Raspian and works flawlessly). Has anyone tried installing and have a script or step by step tutorial ? I am pretty new to this.

    Much thanks in advance!

    PCP is not Raspbian based. You could try Max2Play instead.

    hi lbits,

    There is a nice tutorial for a 3.5" screen. It should work OK for 2.8" screen.

    In general, be a little careful with those install scripts, there is a lot out there, most clobber the Raspberry configurations files. The Adafruit scripts is quite a bit better but still only intended for Raspbian.

    regards
    Greg
