How to use Raspbian/Ubuntu Mate/Kali/Retropie system

Method 1

  • Use the image of the driver preinstalled

1) Download the driver image file from the website: Image_Download
2) Format Micro SD card by SDFormatter
3) Burn the official image into Micro SD card by using Win32DiskImager.
4) Insert Micro SD card, connect LCD, start Raspberry Pi, and it will work normally.

Method 2

Step 1, install the latest official images of various systems (Q:Don‘t know how to install?)
(1)Download from the official website
(2)Format Micro SD card by SDFormatter
(3)Burn the official image into Micro SD card by using Win32DiskImager
 Step 2,Connect to Raspberry Pi
4.0-HDMI-005.jpg 4.0-HDMI-0013.jpg
As shown in the figure, connect the LCD module to the Raspberry Pi

Step 3, Install the LCD driver
A. Install drivers in the Raspbian system(Raspberry Pi requires Internet connection)
(1)Log on to the Raspberry Pi terminal(User: pi; Password: raspberry) (Q:SSH cannot connect?)
(2)Execute the following command (copy and paste it by right-clicking on the Putty window):
sudo rm -rf LCD-show
git clone https://github.com/goodtft/LCD-show.git
chmod -R 755 LCD-show
cd LCD-show/
sudo ./MPI4008-show
B. Install drivers in the Ubuntu / Kali / RetroPie system
(1)Download local drivers "LCD-show.tar.gz"
Raspberry Pi OS-Driver
(2)Copy "LCD-show.tar.gz" to the Raspberry Pi system
(3)Log on to the Raspberry Pi terminal, Execute the following command ( Username Password)
tar -xvzf LCD-show.tar.gz
chmod -R 755 LCD-show 
cd LCD-show/
sudo ./MPI4008-show
Step 4, Check whether the driver is installed successfully
After the installation of the LCD driver is completed, the system will restart automatically. If the LCD can be normally displayed and touched, the installation of the driver is successful


A. Ubuntu system default SSH is not enabled, the specific method of opening seeRaspberryPi Ubuntu-mate open ssh instructions
B. Ubuntu-18.04 system ssh connection may fail, the specific solution is shown in RaspberryPi Ubuntu-mate-18.04 ssh connection failure solution description
C. The retropie-rpi1_zero system cannot log in via SSH (no network port and wifi module). You need to copy the driver through the serial port. For details, see RaspberryPi Zero open serial instructions
D. Retropie system game installation and setup instructions see RaspberryPi Retropie using instructions

How to use as PC Monitor

  • Connected the computer HDMI output to the LCD HDMI interface by HDMI cable.
  • Power to Micro USB interface
  • If you have multiple monitors, please pull the other displayer, and make this LCD as the only displayer for testing.
  • As computer monitors, the touch function will not be available.

How to rotate the display direction

This method only applies to the Raspberry Pi series of display screens, other display screens do not apply.

  • Method 1,If the driver is not installed, execute the following command (Raspberry Pi needs to connected to the Internet):
sudo rm -rf LCD-show
git clone https://github.com/goodtft/LCD-show.git
chmod -R 755 LCD-show
cd LCD-show/
sudo ./XXX-show 90

After execution, the driver will be installed. The system will automatically restart, and the display screen will rotate 90 degrees to display and touch normally.
' XXX-show ' can be changed to the corresponding driver, and ' 90 ' can be changed to 0, 90, 180 and 270, respectively representing rotation angles of 0 degrees, 90 degrees, 180 degrees, 270 degrees)

  • Method 2,If the driver is already installed, execute the following command:
cd LCD-show/
sudo ./rotate.sh 90

After execution, the system will automatically restart, and the display screen will rotate 90 degrees to display and touch normally.
( ' 90 ' can be changed to 0, 90, 180 and 270, respectively representing rotation angles of 0 degrees, 90 degrees, 180 degrees, 270 degrees)
If the rotate.sh prompt cannot be found, use Method 1 to install the latest drivers
