it only reduced the height of displayed content to 480 but it doesn’t rotate
Please post the output of
with the touch display plugin enabled.
Do you use the display in portait or landscape mode?
hdmi_cvt=480 1920 60
Userconfig is empty:
# Add your custom config.txt options to this file, which will be preserved during updates
It’s a bit confusing. the Native mode of this thing is portrait mode (I didn’t read the specs carefully) but I want it in landscape
That doesn’t show any rotation setting. Has a rotation other than 0 deg. been set on the plugin’s config page?
The display seems to be similar to the one used in the thead "DIY streamer with volumio in standard 43cm box - #2 by lausiv.
Maybe have a look at the settings in the “userconfig.txt” which has been posted over there and try out the values from that file in your “/boot/config.txt” (apart from “display_rotate=1”).
You made my day!
I spent several hours and you made in just a few minutes.
I think the framebuffer does the trick because now the display=rotate=1 works!
What does your “/boot/config.txt” look now?
Are you able to rotate using the touch display plugin?
my config is untouched but the plugin changed my userconfig:
#### Touch Display rotation setting below: do not alter ####
I never get this config to work on rasperrypi OS so I focused on Xrandr
Now let me suggest to move the lines
hdmi_cvt=480 1920 60
from “/boot/config.txt” to “/boot/userconfig.txt”.
This has the advantage that your own entries remain untouched when Volumio gets updated. In contrast /boot/config.txt file gets overwritten (further information).
I will do so. Finally I can go on with my project
I am a newb when it comes to Raspberry Pi’s and programming in general. I was able to get Volimio installed on my Rpi4 2gb and I can access it from a PC web browser…But I cannot get the HDMI output to work. just shows a Login screen.
Can someone. give me a complete newb walk through on how to get the HDMI output to work. meaning I want to see the User Interface on the screen.
a simple step by step assume i know nothing tutorial on how to make the HDMI port work with a standard PC monitor or TV
Please and Thank you
Look for the Touch Display plugin. You can install it from “Plugins” -> “Search Plugins” -> “Miscellanea”. Be patient… installation can take quite a while. After installing don’t forget to enable the plugin.
At best nothing more has to be done. If you should encounter issues please provide the brand and exact model name of your screen.
I did that and the on screen keybaord plug in was suggested. zero change. I am using an Liliput 7" HDMI monitor. but also tried a Lg 19" Computer monitor. and a westinghouse 42" TV…same result.
Make sure the screen is connected to HDMI0 port.
Do you see any error messages in the UI when the plugin is starting?
sometimes it says “Can’t connect to xserve”
Possibly not all required software packages have been successfully downloaded during plugin installation. I suggest to uninstall the plugin and install again.
BTW: Did you install any other software like lightdm?
I have uninstalled/reinstalled the plugin several times, no change. no other plug ins or software. this was a fresh build so all parts new as well.
Please connect to Volumio via SSH.
Then with the touch display plugin enabled post the results of
ls -al /tmp/.X11-unix
systemctl status -l volumio-kiosk.service
I haven’t got a clue how to do any of that. no idea what that means
