Official Pi 7" touch screen addition


#1

hey Forum,

I’ve seen a good bit about adding a screen to the Pi portion of Astrobox, but has anyone added the Pi 7" screen - I have one and this would be the perfect place to use it - I did see the thread with the same question but I arrive at the same point - I can see the pi boot up but don’t get to the AB interface - any and all assistance appreciated.

I did it about a year ago with a regular screen on the rpi along with a keyboard and mouse, so maybe it will help with your touchscreen. After the astrobox would boot, I would load the raspbwrry pi’s graphical desktop, load my browser and log onto the astrobox’s local address.

hello, may I know how you loaded the raspberry pi’s graphical desktop ?
