This is my first post, so hello everyone.
I’ve got a rectangular Hyperpixel4 and a Pi3B+. Yesterday I updated Raspbian and installed the Hyperpixel4 using the Curl command. It worked fine and it looks a very nice screen, but it was in portrait mode, so menu bars were all squashed up and it wasn’t an ideal layout. I found out on the forum how to edit config.txt to rotate the display to landscape, but even though I also edited the touchscreen config line to rotate, it still hadn’t rotated.
I had a look on Github and found I need to do something to the driver. However, I’m not very fluent in Linux and it may as well have been written in Greek:
Note: You must build the latest dtoverlay file to enable rotation support:
1. Go into
make to build a new hyperpixel4.dtbo with rotation support
3. copy the overlay with
sudo cp hyperpixel4.dtbo /boot/overlays/
Ok, sounds great, now how do I actually do that?
Is SRC a directory? If so which one, there are several?
How do I run “make”? How to I use it to build a new .dtbo file?
How do I copy the overlay?
Sorry for my noob questions.
