Which kernel img do I use for the 1280x800 LVDS display for the pcduino3b?


There are links here for the LVDS:


But it does not say what screen resolution the imgs are for.


Then on the store page to buy the 1280 screen there is a different link to the kernel, with an older release date (2014).



Which is the right image to use? The documentation, when it exists, is very confusing.

Hi rbot,
I'm also having some issues getting the system to work end to end. Maybe I'm using the wrong files. I have got most of the things to kind of work... I have to admit it was pretty cool to see the 1280x800 display light up with ubuntu :)
I was able to use the 2nd link you have listed and get the display to work but the touch screen still does not work.
Also the mouse does not work. I used an external display using the HDMI cable and luckily it mirrored the image that was displayed on the LVDS 1280x800 screen. So I used the external monitor when using the mouse. Here is my setup

IMG 2604


If I can get the mouse and touch screen work that would be wonderful! 

I followed instruction but something is missing... 

The picture in Step2 on http://linksprite.co...ch_for_pcDuino3  lists three files as available in the directory - /lib/modules/3.4.79+/kernel/drivers/input/touchscreen/


I have only two files - gslx680.ko and usbtouchscreen.ko
Not sure but could that be the reason the touch screen is not working?


I did all the steps mentioned on that page. Mouse cursor is not visible on the 1280x800 screen.


Anyone have any ideas?
