2.8" pitft on a raspberry pi3


#1

Have now got this dinky display working, but how to adjust the resolution of the display?

The Pi is displaying windows way to large for the display.

Is there any way of getting the pi display to fit the display size?

Thanks in anticipation.

I don’t believe there are any useful adjustments you can make- most standard linux desktop environments, and the apps within, assume a minimum vertical resolution of 768 pixels. This has plagued linux-handheld users for ages. Since the resolution of the display is constant- you can’t change the number of pixels it has- there’s no way you can account for this.

Screens like that just aren’t practical for running a desktop environment- but they’re great for building your own PyGame or Kivy custom UI, running emulators full-screen, and other things of that nature.
