How do I set up the PiTFT Plus 3.5" touchscreen with a Raspberry Pi 2?

  • Please show how you have it connected, and if you've attempted to install any drivers. There is software that needs to be installed after the LCD is connected correctly (if you're not using their custom image... specify whether you're using that as well).
