Waveshare Clone Touchscreen

Mon Apr 24, 2017 6:30 pm

Hi

I have a Waveshare 3.5 inch touchscreen clone that was working on my B, after a massive effort!

I have just moved the SD to my Zero W and updated it to the latest Jessie/Pixel etc.

I have a working display, but the touch screen is all over the place. X & Y are crossed, and thats before I have tried calibration. I have looked all over the net, forums, and blog posts, but no-one has come up with an answer that works.

How do I set up the touch screen and change the settings?

Many thanks

UPDATE

I have followed this http://root42.blogspot.co.uk/2016/02/in ... ry-pi.html exactly but I still have X & Y back to front.

Any ideas

at that website the code has a small part that says


Option "SwapAxes" "1"


maybe change that to a 0 ?

no idea really, worth a shot!
