I've been owning for a few years now this useful LCD screen from Arduino https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/TFT and I wanted to ask if it was possible to connect it to the Raspberry Pi 2. The official website reports that it's based on the Adafruit ST7735 library, so I thought that as a screen it was similar to the ST7735 models. I followed these two guides, including the Luma library that seems to be famous for the use of screens with Raspberry, but both of them have the same result: colorful and confused lines when I start a script. I realize I'm close to the solution, but I don't understand why it doesn't want to work. I have countered the pin connections several times and used them as the guides show. These are the tutorials:

  1. https://luma-lcd.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html
  2. https://jakew.me/2018/01/19/st7735-pi/

It is also possible that it contains a stone chip that does not allow it to be used with boards other than Arduino and therefore only with the official library https://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/TFTLibrary ?

Thanks for your help.
