Raspberry Pi touch monitor

namename New Member Posts: 1
Hello I bought UpBoard and this monitor https://www.amazon.com/Elecrow-RPA05010R-800x480-Display-Raspberry/dp/B013JECYF2/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1499720612&sr=8-3&keywords=5inch+monitor+hdmi

I got it powered, but I can't get the touch screen to work.

UpBoard claims to have Raspberry Pi compatible connector, anyone have any idea how to get this to work?

    The touch function on that screen uses I2C interface. The UP doesn't currently support I2C under windows due to limitations in how Windows supports I2C devices. My understanding is that you would essentially have to have a custom driver for whatever device you are using.

    In Windows the I2C device driver needs to be developed according to a different device.
    Here is sample code of I2C:

    Currently, we only got ready for I2C and DIO, you can download the sample codes from below FTP.

    The XPT2046 is actually an SPI-device, not I2C.

    The 40-pin header is fully functional only under Linux, in particular using our provided Kernels (ubilinux 3.0, ubuntu via ppa or Yocto 2.1).
