I wrote a simple script that uses pygame to display the information. However, I found that it won't display on screen when I call it from terminal through SSH. I found this guide/solution on adafruit, but it apparently doesn't work.
sudo python pyscope.py does not give me red box on the screen. From console, doing
startx & followed by
sudo python pyscope.py doesnt work either.
Is there another way to display a pygame window onto the PiTFT from console?
