I have decided I would like to build an transmitter with all the bells and whistles for my aircraft carrier project. After talking to many people and reading forums and ideas regarding this, I have the belief it can be done.
I have bought a Pcduino with the LVDS touch screen.
First hurdle - getting the screen to operate. I am totally new to this area and have never done anything in regards to flashing an image, etc. I have gone back to the place of purchase and they were not much help although they did what they could and sent an email to which I have received a reply. I have tried to get it working, the pcduino will output to a normal screen via HDMI, but to no avail. I have put the image on a 32G SD card with WinDisk32Imager and gone through the video countless times to try and sort it out.
I seem to be missing something.
Is there someone in Perth Western Australia that could help? I am in the Kelmscott area.

Could anyone let me know how to repair this error please.
I have followed this YouTube vid.

I'm in Sydney but had exactly the same problem - you can read all about my efforts at: https://reefwingrobo...uch-screen.html
I've given up for now and am using my HDMI screen instead! I got mine for free but I wouldn't be happy if I had paid for it.

Either there is only a few that are wanting to use the touch screen and have given up on trying to get it to work or someone has changed the link slightly for it to bring up an error. Yes it was done three years ago, they may have abandoned the project and that may be the reason for the cheap sets now........who knows.
I have got the screen to work. It would be nice to get the touch screen working.

I used the set in green
- The 2014-12-5 kernel fixes the Arduino-ish IDE corruption issue due to serial port bug.
- The LVDS kernel has the touch driver already built-in.
- Install LVDS screen on pcDuino3B (Video)
I have asked my Jaycar friends to see if they can let me know what else needs to be done to get the touch side of it working.

How did you go? I am getting help from my local Jaycar. I haven't had the touchscreen going as yet but I do believe I am close.
I have one more challenge to beat which is getting the ft5x_ts.ko to load along with the gslx680.ko
Hopefully I will get this sorted shortly.
Anyone out there that can help with this, please reply.

Here's where I have got to.
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo insmod lib/modules3.4.79+/kernel/drivers/input/touchscreen/gslx680.ko
insmod: can't read 'lib/modules3.4.79+/kernel/drivers/input/touchscreen/gslx680.ko': No such file or directory
When I look in the directory it is all there.
One of the guys at my Jaycar store has got me to this stage. It is part of this thread on the touchscreen
I have seen cases where the screen functions but the touch does not due to a wiring error, so I would check the wiring, or failing that, try restarting the PCDuino, as I have seen cases where the touch is not recognised immediately. This page also mentions a bugfix: http://linksprite.co...ch_for_pcDuino3
Gslx680.ko is used for the touchscreen from what I understand.
