lcd cape

Hi;

I bought a Waveshare 3.2" LCD screen[1] and I would like to use it, but my intention is to use it in console only. Is there a way to enable SPI without installing any X11 and etc.

Hi Sarmisak,

This looks similar to how the Adafruit TFT screen works: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-pitft-28-inch-resistive-touchscreen-display-raspberry-pi/software-installation

As far as i can tell, it requires X11 to function. So to answer your question, it doesn’t look like it. I dont own a touchscreen TFT module so i’am unable to test it myself. You’d probably be best to post your question on the official RPi forums.
