Hello dear pine64 community,

I just got my hands on my playbox case and pine64+ 2G with wifi.

Big disappointment that the touchscreen has no linux support which renders the whole thing useless to me. If this 'little detail' had been shared beforehand I would not have ordered this.

Well I figured that I would try to assemble it anyways, so I used the video and pictures as a guide but there is absolutely no way to connect the screen to the board, the ribbon cable is about half as long as the distance between the board and screen connector (see picture below).

Has anyone else encountered this issue ? What are my options to get the correct cable (I'd rather not spend more money on an item that is useless to me) ?

I also delayed assembly and I too am missing the longer touch screen connector required for the "white box".
Options anyone? Can someone tell me the optimal length to buy?
Just buy a C4 Labs enclosure, no extensions needed.

My Playbox didn't have the long cable.

All mew playbox (after Kickstarter) comes with long cable by default. If you needs a long cable, please PM me and I will ship one to you.
