Hi All,

Got one of the original Kickstarter Pine64 Plus models with the LCD output. Can I use the LCD touchscreen on the site:
https://www.pine64.org/?product=7-lcd-to...reen-panel

With Volumio OS and make a cool standalone Spotify player?


Im aware there was some early Linux support issues.. that all taken care of now?

I do not know, but I too am interested. This is a good idea for a cool project.
I happen to have the LCD and the Pine DAC at hand so I will try this week. Hope Ge (Volumio developer) sees this thread as he will definitely know the answer ...
Cool thanks. I will get the DAC too if the LCD works. Ive just started a new job so if this works I was going to make an office music player and design/3d print a custom case for the company too!
Just checked he was last 2 weeks ago in the IRC channel. He's likely busy with something - I'll PM him and ask, and link this thread.

yes, been busy lately with hardly any time left for volumio, other than helping with the upcoming release.

There "should" be no issue with a touch screen LCD and volumio on a Pine64, I tested it quickly.
I have not connected a touch screen to the Pine64 myself, but a 1080p monitor works out-of-the-box. 
To verify, I connected to a 1080p TV monitor, installed touch screen plugin for the PI which works well with many other touch panels or monitor devices.
Plugin installation takes approx. 10 minutes to complete, then enable the plugin et voilà.
For installation of a touch screen, follow the instructions elsewhere on this forum, then install the plugin.

In case you use a monitor, you should change the setup to avoid problems when the monitor going into sleep mode.
Otherwise you would need a mouse or keyboard to re-active. Hiding the cursor (if present) should also be part of that change.
1. remove time-out on kiosk mode: edit /opt/volumiokiosk.sh:
Change line #1, replace "+dpms" by "-dpms"
Change line #2, replace "blank" by "off"
Remove line #3

2. hide the mouse after inactivity: install unclutter
sudo apt-get install unclutter

3. Add this line to the end of /etc/xdg/openbox/autostart to remove the cursor:
@unclutter -idle 0

For the DAC to work, you need a new Pine64 volumio version, which I hope to publish as a dev version sometime next week. 
It will only support RCA output. no S/PDIF due to driver issues.

Great, back ordered the LCD and DAC.
Can we update from the Dev version of Volumio from an existing install?

thanks!

Hi,

this is an extremely late response, I'm really sorry about this.  

Today I built a first dev image for Rock64, the link will be published within the next few hours.
Next is Pine64, it is working with the DAC (but without SPDIF), it just needs to be moved to the build server. 
I hope to publish the Pine64 image the next ffew daysweek. 

There is no way to upgrade Pine64/ Rock64 images yet, as the initramfs changes have not been fully tested.

Took me a long time to get around to this! However the Pine64 Touchscreen does not work with the latest Volumio (the only one I tested, volumio-2.383). Without the screen connected I logged in, enabled TouchScreen Plugin, shutdown, installed screen physically and.. wont boot.  Cannot even access the device over IP and the red light eventually goes out. 
Disconnect screen (just touchscreen cable even) and it will boot.

Tried the "Android 6.0.1 with LCD" build in PINE64 Installer and the screen & touch are working fine. There is some problem with Volumio + Touch & Screen. Any ideas?
