Good morning, I have recently started my adventure with raspberry Pi, I am currently using raspberry pi 4B and I bought a DPI screen - LCD IPS 7 '' 1024x600px Waveshare 12885 and I do not know how to connect it to work: /

Waveshare have a wiki that explains how to connect this to a Pi 4 in English at this site here.

Basically, fit the HAT and change config.txt to read:

# Enable DRM VC4 V3D driver on top of the dispmanx display stack
dpi_timings=1024 0 0 0 88 600 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 60 0 26000000 6

hdmi_cvt 1024 600 60 6 0 0 0

Note it is important to comment out vc4-fkms-v3d (add the # at the start of the line).

    Please don't include google translate stuff. Post in English, if the OP or someone else need to translate if for themselves, they can do that, but we are English only.

  • I know. This is one of the rules I like least to enforce, but I understand that if someone is allowed to do it, then anyone has to be allowed to do it, and then enforcing any kind of rule (re abusiveness, spam, quality, topicality, etc) becomes impossible on some scale.
