I have 7" 1024x600 touch screen (
Page Not Found - Aliexpress.com ) , the screen work, I can see menus from OSMC but the touch not work (it work with Rasp2Play distribution (Raspbian) )
I install GIT for install driver but when I install driver on my CD, my raspberry said
osmc@momoto:~$ cd LCD-show/
osmc@momoto:~/LCD-show$ sudo ./LCD7C-show
cp: cannot create regular file '/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-fbturbo.conf': No such file or directory
the ssh connexion broken and the rasp don’t work
my raspberry don’t boot at all, the green light flash like an error (regular sequence), it’s like a missing file at boot
Have you got any idea ? I dont use linux often so I find it hard to find
I think it’s this screen :
CD DRIVER :
Thank you, and sorry for my bad englisg
We don’t use X11 on OSMC.
It’s possible to install X11 ? What is X11 ?
X11 is a Window System/Server see
The X Window System (X11, or simply X) is a windowing system for bitmap displays, common on Unix-like operating systems.
X provides the basic framework for a GUI environment: drawing and moving windows on the display device and interacting with a mouse and keyboard. X does not mandate the user interface – this is handled by individual programs. As such, the visual styling of X-based environments varies greatly; different programs may present radically different interfaces.
X originated as par...
Yes it is possible to install X11 see
I’ve made a small installer for a simple desktop, that runs fine on a pi2, pi3, vero2 and vero4k with the latest image installed. This in NOT an official desktop installation. The installer takes about 15 mins to install everything, with a few none vital warnings. It installs Xserver, LXDE core, Chromium, OSMC desktop background image and one Icon on the desktop, for a file manager. Finally a starting/launcher addon for kodi.
This installer, also installs a “virtual mouse & keyboard” controlled…
But you will not be able to run Kodi under X11 on OSMC so I guess not the purpose you want to reach.
So, If I understand, if I install X11, I “lost” kodi ?
No you will keep Kodi but it will continue to run directly on the GPU and not via X11.
You will install X11 in parallel as a Desktop System and you run Kodi or the Desktop.
So as long as your touchscreen uses X11 to run you will not be able to use it with Kodi under OSMC
I don’t think the touch screen needs X11 to run as OP says he has menus already working
on it. But it may be needed for touch screen functionality.
Well kinda what I meant, may should have written “as long as your touchscreen uses X1 to get the touchscreen events”
Ho okay, I understand now!
Have you got a solution to have kodi with touchscreen “unofficial” ? It’s for a projet media center in my car,
it run with hifiberry digi for output sound
When I use Max2Play, Kodi work with my touchscreen(because Max2Play have desktop) but he disable outpout soundcard… It’s why I go to OSMC, it’s work with my soundcard but no with my touch screen xD
Well the easiest in your situation is to stick to Raspbian and install Kodi on top of it.
Okey, thank you, I will do this,
the disadvantage of installing it on top is that the system will be heavier? Will it play on performance?
Will be not as beefy as on OSMC but for your purpose may work.
I will try and I will make a return tomorrow
Raspbian + kodi work with touch screen,
I realized that the touchpad actually turns off when I plug an external power supply into the display, and when I tested on OSMC it was always plugged in… So i restore Backup of my OSMC on my rasp, I disconnected the external power supply and… The touch screen work with OSMC!
But… this kodi on raspbian or with OSMC, when I’m on kodi, the tactile reacted very badly. When I’m on desktop on raspbian, it work perfectly, any idea ?
the mouse pointer remains at the top left
