Robopeak usb tft with retropie?
I have purchased the robopeak usb tft from the pimoroni webshop.
I have used the simple installer script pimoroni provided to get the basic module started.
I have installed fbcp (just installed no modprobe shit) and when I ran it I saw the stuff on the display BUT:
It had red/blue swapped
list itemThe refreshrate was way below the 100hz it (claims to) supports
There was a delay of 1-1.5 SECONDS (even in terminal)
Since I am planning on using this in a retropie project I CANNOT USE IT IN THIS CONDITION!
Please help me fix up this mess. Unfortunately this is not a widely used product so a little digging is required.
The module it uses is called rp_usbdisplay (thats all I could figure out).
It does seem to have a nice refreshrate when using it on the desktop however (and no delay + normal colors. aka working as expected. [WITH OFFICIAL XORG CONFIG OFC])
All the official images are down so the pimoroni thing is the only reliable thing I found.
Please help me get this thing working with emulationstation (I dont need it for anything else so if its only possible without fbcp then thats fine)
All ideas are appreciated
Quickly reviewing the description at the bottom it points to Github where there's an issue being reported with the latest raspbian kernel
@obsidianspider So I should install the driver by building with the DKMS approach? I will try that later with a fresh retropie image
@moustachespy I'm not sure, but if it was me and I was having issues, I'd try doing an installation on a fresh image, as you suggested. If you have a spare Micro SD card it should be a fairly quick thing to try.
I'm running into the same problem where my robopeak usb tft has red and blue swapped when I use fbcp.
Did you find a solution?
