    Hello Board 🙂
    my 2.8″ Display for the pi from max2play just arrived. I stacked the display on the pi and put it in the included case. So far so good. I looked up the Howto and the Instructable page for this particual display but could not get it to run:

    When i try to start the sqeezelite service it fails to start with the error:
    „..libncurses.so.5: undefined symbol: escdelay, version ncurses_5.1.20000708…“

    I tried rebuilding the package from the m2play repositories with the same result. Even the option to set squeezelite to the particular display ended with the same result.

    What can I do? Thx for the help

    best regards

    Hi Gregor

    Have you installed the correct drivers for your display ???

    Hi Gregor,

    You do not need to do anything in our repositories or in Squeezelite in order for your 2.8″ screen to work.

    Just select it in our RPi-Display plugin, click save and reboot.

    If you want to use it to control Squeezebox playback, make sure you set Jivelite to autostart.

    Hello Heiner,

    That was indeed part of the problem. I installed the display on the main pi (the one with the squeezebox-server). Later I installed the RPI-Display Plugin and selected the Display-after that the display showed the linux boot-process, went to a black screen with a cursor – but it did not start any services like webserver, squeezebox-server, etc. so i did not get any chance to activate jivelite etc.

    I disconnected the display now and did not try it again. Do you have any idea why it did not boot any further?

    Best regards

    Hi Gregor,

    You can set up everything from the web interface. Set Jivelite to autostart and install the 2.8 display selection in RPi-Display. Try burning a fresh image and doing this first, that should do the trick.
