Installing the Touch Display plugin

I'm not sure but the packages raspberrypi-kernel and raspberrypi-bootloader are required by libraspberrypi0 which is a dependency of chromium package.

If you pin and hold both packages, will libraspberrypi0 be installed? In my tries it refused to install in case of missing dependencies.
So i could not install chromium.

No, with the held packages, libraspberrypi0 won't be installed either, but install procedure will not complain about it either (it's a firmware update you don't want anyway, as it would break distribution).
Then the only dependencies problems reported are those described in post #p29708, which I resolved as explained in that post.
From there, plugin install does not fail and Pi boots normally.

Just the plugin does not fully work yet in my case due to X failing to start: maybe it's a HDMI-specific issue as I do not use DSI port-based screen.
Maybe it's fine for 7″ Touchscreen Monitor which this plugin is initially intended for?
So not completely resolved yet for me, but should be very close now...
Any idea for the X thing?

The X.org issue may be due to recent packages: there are few articles about that.
So tried to work backwards and find older dependencies which may work (would be interesting to check with X library versions on working 2.041).
The only thing I could get to was to sequentially
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core=2:1.16.4-1
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-evdev=1:2.9.0-2
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg=1:7.7+7+b1
sudo apt-get install xorg=1:7.7+7+b1
and then mark them hold, before installing the plugin (which installed fine). However x session did not work either.
I leave it here in case someone has more success in finding-out this last bit.

I've just updated the plugin zip. Now the installation should work and your volumio will survive...
Please, for the braves, let me know how it goes ;)

I just installed Volumio on a Raspberry Pi Zero W with Waveshare 5" display. The plugin works, but I'm missing the possibility to change resolution etc., I needed to do this manually.

Thank you very much! The plugin works fine!

- Volumio Version: 2.118
- Raspberry Pi 3
- 7 Zoll Raspberry Display

Unfortunately the German language pack does not work.

I noticed something else ...
The screensaver is not disabled. After a few minutes I have a black display.

After flashing my sd card several times, I tried to use volumio 2.118 for installing the touch ui plugin (RPi3/RPi Touch screen 7").

But, it always stop at 70% and is asking for a keyboard layout from 1-21.

Is there a easy work around for this?
Dpkg --configure -a does not show any way around.
