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.25. April 2018 at 21:53 #35333
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.25. April 2018 at 22:27 #35335
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?
