I received a couple of years ago, an tft lcd 3" screen as a gift, and now, I am considering to use it on my Octoprint server as a screen. I have installed Octoprint on both my Raspberry Pi 2 and 3, and somehow I managed to make the display light up and show the desktop, even TouchUI's user interface. The issue is that I don't seem to get the touch functionality work at all.
The lcd screen has mcufriend written on it, so I tried to google it, without much success. I've managed to found these:
- the instructions that managed to get the screen displaying information: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=193999
- the screen, at least the images about it match with what I have:
Now, I don't know, if the screen is not a touch one and that is why the functionality is not working, or being Octoprint's Linux build which initially doesn't have a GUI and I need to set additional things to make it work, but my question would be, that what can I do to try and make it work and at the same time, what screen is recommended that is a guarantee success without so much hassle.
