    official RPF touchscreen not fully recognized?

    Greetings,

    I have a raspberry pi 3 with the official RPF 7" touchscreen.

    When I boot it in PiCorePlayer 5.0, the screen is correctly detected for display, but I have no touchscreen.
    In the piCorePlayer menu (accessed trough keyboard) the option "adjust LCD brightness" I always get "no official raspberry pi display found" (or something to that end)

    Where do we find the correct drivers to install for touchscreen and brightness control?

    Thanks.

    My guess is that it would not work if you tried booting Raspbian instead.
    In which case ... check wiring.

    Tested, boots correctly in raspbian.

    I made a new install of picoreplayer, and everything is recognized now. I don't quite understand what went wrong with the previous installation.

    Thanks for the help

    It is very easy to have a bad connection on the ribbon cables, you might want to check everything as you assemble in your case.
    piCorePlayer a small player for the Raspberry Pi in RAM.

    Hi Marsupial, did you perform the Jivelite setup in your picoreplayer webui?
    To do this you have to, at least, switch from 'Basic' to 'Normal' in it's 'Main Page' menu, go into the 'Tweaks' menu and there you find the option to install Jivelite and set it up to start automatically.
    Don't forget to save.
