I guess I got a 2.8 PiTFT 320×240 touch screen that would not work with Max2Play. http://adafru.it/2298 Found a image to put on a SD card at there web page and installed it and that’s the first I seen the screen work.
So then just wanted to know if could install Max2Play on about any Ubuntu load. Using Google I found a script and installed it and with a lot of other things got it working good.
Posted about it as I did it a 2ND time in this forum. So I guess you could do the same. Install the OS that works with your 5″ USB touchscreen and run that script and do some settings.

That my help you do it for your screen.
