Using the LCD with your Raspberry Pi
Download LCD drivers: LCD Driver by waveshare (need network when installing)
- Copy LCD driver onto the USB disk.
- Insert the USB disk into the USB host on your Raspberry Pi
- Copy the LCD drivers into the Pi's filesystem, e.g /home/pi
- Open a terminal and use the cd command to navigate to the directory where the driver is
e.g. if the directory is "/home/pi" then you need to use the command "cd /home/pi"
- Unzip LCD-show.tar.gz:
tar -xvf LCD-show.tar.gz
- Enter the LCD-show directory
- Install driver
After you run the command, the system will automatically restart and switch to the LCD display.
Restore Output to HDMI
Note: When using the LCD display driver be sure to power off the system using software rather than switching the power off abruptly to avoid damage to the LCD.
