I have just installed the new Raspberry Pi 7 inch touchscreen and when I use the Raspbian software everything seems to function properly, however when I load up with Ubuntu Mate the display functions but without the touch part. Any suggestions or missing information?
Are there any kernel specific options which should be enabled to use the display?
When I use a recent firmware, with a kernel compiled using buildroot, I do see the splash screen, but no console output.
Yes Paul, "display_rotate=2" only rotates the display, not the touch area.
Other posts have said to use "lcd_rotate=2" instead, but for some reason it is ignored on my system.
I've done a "sudo apt-get update" and "sudo apt-get upgrade" but it still ignores the setting. My guess is that its not updating the boot loader correctly but I don't know how to solve it. My system is basic raspbian (05-05-2015).
If you get it working, please let me know what you did.
New firmware available via rpi-update fixes a touch screen issue and in might be the thing that implements lcd_rotate as well (as they changed the default to "upside down" )
