Hi,

Until now, DietPi only support Odroid-XU4 plus CloudShell as build-in display for DietPi-Cloudshell



But not everyone traced DietPi development on GitHub: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/409

New in DietPi v.123 is support for following LCD panel:
RPi-3 with Wave Share SpotPear 3.2inch RPi LCD V4

Supported devices:
DietPi v.123 wrote: New Feature:
DietPi-Config > Display Options | Added support for changing LCD panels (currently: Waveshare32 and Odroid-Cloudshell) on all Odroids and Raspberry Pis. Both work great with DietPi-Cloudshell stats display: http://dietpi.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f ... rt=20#p204. Waveshare32 installation also supports X11 desktops with touch input: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issue ... -232729020

DietPi-Cloudshell can be installed by running dietpi-software and selecting it for installation under DietPi Optimized software list


Installation for LCD panel via dietpi-config:
  • Run dietpi-update to get the last version and reboot your device.
  • Run dietpi-config. Select Display Options, then LCD Panel Addon.
  • Select waveshare32
  • Exit dietpi-config and say yes to the reboot
dietpi-config
dietpi-config

Here are some pictures, running DietPi-Cloudshell on Hardkernel Odroid-C1+,RPi B+ and RPi 3:

But it is as well possible, to run the "Classic Pi-Hole Real-time Monitor" on this displays:
Pi-Hole chronometer.sh
Pi-Hole chronometer.sh

Code: Select all

root@RPi-PiHole-LCD:~# clear > /dev/tty1
root@RPi-PiHole-LCD:~# chronometer.sh > /dev/tty1

Fourdee also tested X11 working on RPi fbdev with touchscreen (stylus) support:
RPi-3 Desktop on 3.2'' display with touch input support
RPi-3 Desktop on 3.2'' display with touch input support
You don't own a supported Display at the moment? Your device is currently not supported?
No problem, you can use Dietpi-Cloudshell with a cheap/old android phone or tablet via USB connection as well:
