    I have the Adafruit 2.8″ PiTFT display installed on my Raspberry Pi 3. Jivelite functions, but I can’t see the full screen, even though I’ve installed the 2.8″ skin (QVGATouchSkin) via Max2Play. The right edge bleeds off the display, enough that I can’t see the music note usually in the top right hand corner.

    I’ve tried all the different skins in the Jivelite list, but none fit correctly. When I check the display resolution on the desktop, it’s set to 640×480, twice that of the skin. Not sure if that is the issue or not.

    Also to note, I couldn’t get the RPi Display plugin to install correctly though the Max2Play browser. Instead I used the Adafruit guide. That could be part of the issue, too.

    I’d appreciate help getting this to work correctly. Thanks.

    Hi sf,

    Were you also able to select the QVGA skin in the Jivelite menu itself?

    Yes, I can select any of the skins, and they all adjust the overall image of Jivelite in different ways. Here are what some of them look like:

    QVGATOUCH_SKIN – The top left quarter of the screen is all that is used. The rest is blank. So it’s about a fourth of the size of the display.
    QVGA Landscape Skin – Same as above, just the top left quarter is used.
    Joggler Skin – Image is too big. Part of the right and bottom of the display is cut off.
    HD Skin (640×480) – Similar to Joggler Skin, but even more is cut off on the right and bottom of the display.

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    Hi Heiner,

    I was able to do some experimenting with the Raspbian config.txt file and I can confirm that by changing the resolution manually in the config file, the QVGATOUCH_Skin now fits correctly. The Raspberry display was previously set to 640×480, which was why the skin was too big. I set it to 320×240 to make it fit.

    I’m curious, do you know how I would go about finding or creating a 640×480 skin for Joggler?

    Hi sf,

    Thanks for the follow-up.

    Your first address should be the slimdevices forums. There’s an active community of people use and develop for Squeezebox.
