i use a raspberry pi for the first time and I don't have any programmation skills. I acquired a Kuman 3.5 pouce LCD TFT Screen (https://www.amazon.fr/dp/B01CNLYL1C/ref=pe_386181_51767671_TE_dp_1) for my raspberry pi 3.

From my labtop I installed raspian jessie (zip download and image write on the SD card with the win32disk imager software).

I put my sd card into the raspberry and the OS works but I don't know how to install the screen, I search on forum but nothing works I have a white screen.

Also when tutorial said to download an image to install the screen: should I install win32disk on the raspberry to be able to write the screen image? Please help.


To start using the screen you would need to install the driver that is supplied on the DVD. Or you could download it from github:

git clone https://github.com/goodtft/LCD-show.git

Once cloning is finished got into the LCD-show directory and run tft35-show to install the drivers. The script will automatically reboot the pi.

I Hope this helps!

  • Also, to run the screen at every boot, a change in crontab or rc.local is needed.
