Raspberry Pi + PiTFT 3.5” 480×320 Touchscreen + Case

Yesterday arrived my new gadget, a 480×320 TFT touchscreen (chinese version here) ready to be used with any Raspberry Pi, and a plastic case too!!! 🙂

Raspberry Pi + Pi TFT

Don’t panic if you plug the screen to the Raspberry Pi and you get only a white screen:  The configuration is a little bit tricky because you need to use a custom kernel or download a prebuilt image that you can download for sure from Adafruit or your reseller.

There are also some issues about touchscreen calibration. You must run the ts_calibrate utility and change the xorg configuration to fix it.

And voilà! 🙂
