Official Pi LCD Screen setup

Getting the official pi screen sorted out with Pimoroni case

sudo nano /boot/config.txt

add the following line at the end of the setup info

lcd_rotate=2
  • Adding an onscreen keyboard, suggest you go with Matchbox as Florence does not seem to work out-of-the box as easily
sudo apt-get install matchbox-keyboard
  • You should be able to find the keyboard in the accessories menu, if not most likely this is because it is full, from Preferences – select ‘Main Menu Editor’ and untick something in accessories you don’t use, check keyboard is ticked
  • To add onscreen easy access icon
cd Desktop
nano keyboard.sh

Now write the copy in the following code

#!/bin/bash
 matchbox-keyboard
  • Right click – as of 29 Aug cannot get any of the instructions for this to work
