I recently bought a 3.5 inch TFT touchscreen connected by GPIO to my raspberry. I finally managed to make it work with Raspbian. however, when I launch KODI, the image on the TFT freezes and KODI works only through HDMI. Does someone know how to get the display of KODI on the TFT screen?

  • Can you give us the make and model of touchscreen and explain what you had to do to "make it work with raspbian" please?

The only way it worked for me was with fbcp, basically a small program that copies the frame buffer from fb0 to fb1; does not render so fast but it works.

  • Is there a reason, why fb1 cannot be used directly?
