Foolishly I thought it would be a quick "Plug n' Play" unit, expecting to get my console showing on the little 2.8" screen in seconds. Not quite. I should have read the install guide before ordering!
You see, the PiTFT isn't the easiest thing to get running. In fact, have a quick search on-line and you'll see a mass of forum messages going back and forth trying to get certain parts working. Some can't get their desktop to show up, some can't get the buttons working, others struggle with the backlight control - and so on and so on. It's a bit of a fiddly one to say the least!
After a few attempts and a lot of Googling, I've got mine working perfectly (update - "almost perfectly") - so I'm here to show you exactly what I did, step by step, so that you don't have to go through the same headache as me.
