As far as I understand, lcdproc 0.5.7 should be already be patched to work with the pifacecad and it sort of does? I've installed lcdproc, adjusted the LCDd.conf file to show:
I've also changed the driver location to the correct location: /usr/local/lib/lcdproc/
Code: Select all
[hd44780] ConnectionType=pifacecad Device=/dev/spidev0.1 Size=16x2 Backlight=yes Keypad=yes KeyMatrix_1_1=Left KeyMatrix_1_2=Down KeyMatrix_1_3=Up KeyMatrix_1_4=Right KeyMatrix_1_5=Escape KeyMatrix_1_6=Enter KeyMatrix_1_7=Left KeyMatrix_1_8=Right
I've turned on SPI in raspi-config. My init.d daemon script even works.
My only issue now is getting the lcd to show readable text! It's just a bunch of jumbled gobbly-gook.
Does anyone have any idea what could be happening? I feel like I'm doing everything right.
