[PLUGIN] Touch Display

Volumio-3.324-2022-07-11-x86_amd64 I have that version. Installs on a Samsung flash drive, on a mini PC fujitsu i3, 8 GB RAM, SSD.I upload the downloaded installation file to the pendrive with the balenaEtcher program, then plug the pendrive into the USB PC and turn on the power. After uploading, the configuration screen appears. Am I doing something wrong?

you indicate that you get this screen (flash failed!) then something is clearly wrong.

Sorry sorry noie i got it. I have info in the program that uploading is finished “flash complete”
I am thinking of buying an RP4B (I had a 3A, but it got damaged) - just a question. If the same will happen after uploading the software to RP4?

Now I recorded the Volumio flash drive on a MAC computer with the balenaEtcher program - after uploading to a PC is the same situation ?! No screen plug?

probably the touchscreen plugin is not in pc X86/X64 I’m not really concerned with pc only raspberry pi.

That’s what I suspect

On x86 you don’t need to install a display plugin. Everything is in place, so no plugin available…
If nothing is displayed, it may be due to incompatible hw.

raspberry pi 4 the touchscreen plugin just works with the official 7 inch raspberry pi touchscreen.
I don’t know if that external screen of yours works immediately, normally a DSI or HDMI screen works with the touchscreen plugin.

Overall, the screen works but is rotated. If you could rotate the image from the command line that would be great. But how to do it?

It works, but as I wrote before, the screen is rotated. But why isn’t PeppyMeter working?

You can change the screen orientation in the plugin settings. Choose 180 degrees.

Not in X86

Hello, I’m using an Odroid C2 and there is no “GPU Memory Settings” option
Is there another way to change the GPU memory size?


Thank you for the link!!
I asked because touch responding is slow and scrolling is a lagging a little bit, but according to the link memory allocation is an automatic process.
Any tip to make it work a little bit smoother?


Due to corruption of SD-card I needed to install everything from scratch. This is the first time this install gives me a headache.
Installation keeps failing and now even the rollback gets stuck on:
After a few reboots and uninstall, it got removed on the 3rd attempt.

Only weird things I see in the logs, see below, even though the sites are accessible and network is available and stable.

On the 5th attempt it finally got installed…


These timeouts seem to occur from time to time and - as you experienced yourself - vanish after some time. It’s hard to say what causes them. ATM I don’t consider the timeouts to be related to the plugin itself as the plugin does not even provide the link for the repository (I think the URL is derived from the settings in Volumio’s “/etc/apt/sources.list” file).

Yeah, thought so.
I just mentioned it, in case other people run into the same issue.

Hello. I read everything from the very beginning. Confused. I have the latest Volumio, Raspberry Pi 4 and a 3.5inch RPI 480x 320 XPT2046 screen. The plugin is installed, but the screen does not work. How can I make it work?

Did you add an overlay to the userconfig.txt?
sudo nano /boot/userconfig.txt
then add this line to the bottom
give Ctrl+X then save and exit.

Give the command:
sudo reboot
