hello the group and thanks for your time :)

i'm rather new to Ubuntu.  i bought  a pcduino and a 7" lvds on the premise that it would work out of the box maybe the salesman meant it would out of the box with a hdmi  monitor or tv perhaps but it don't work with the little screen out of the box.  anyway been learning bit by bit. i have the cables between the screen and the pcduino hooked up but i seem to have a problem installing the driver i followed a video on the net i found and i can find the driver file on my system however when i try to  sudo insmod ft5x_ts.ko i get nothing just the following message



ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ ls

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ cd modules

ft5x02_config.c  ft5x_ts.h            ini.c
ubuntu@ubuntu:~/modules/touch/ft5x$ sudo insmod ft5x_ts.ko 
insmod: error inserting 'ft5x_ts.ko': -1 File exists
i have tried variations of sudo and insmod but  no joy any thought as to what i am doing wrong ?

I had the same problem - you can read the different things I tried at: https://reefwingrobo...uch-screen.html


I can't get it to work.
