OSMC + Waweshare 4 inch LCD SPI - instalation problem

Hello everyone.

I’em new user from Poland and first sorry for my english :slight_smile:

I have RPI 3+ and I bought LCD like in title.
After install drivers :

  1. git clone https://github.com/waveshare/LCD-show.git
  2. cd LCD-show/
  3. ./LCD4-show

Pi rebooting, but does not start, build led blinking all the time, and I can’t connect by SSH.
On different systems ( raspbian ) it works.
Did anyone have such a problem, maybe some libraries are missing or I have to install something else.


The screen probably relies on X11

is there a solution to this issue? for example instal x11 on OSMC ?
or better install different OS +kodi ?

No – Kodi uses GLES on Pi, so this won’t work unless you want to incur a significant performance hit.

I remember, i installed raspbian + kodi and performace was very low.
what do you suggest in this case ?

You will need to get another screen. The official Pi one works.

Great, :slight_smile:
I can see that the official screen is only in 7’’ size, it’s too big for me :frowning:
