Venus OS Raspberry 4 - 5" MPI5001, calibration Touchscreen

Hello everybody,

I have already successfully got venus os to run on a Raspberry 4 with the original Raspberry 7 inch display.


But now I want to use a 5 "HDMI display with USB touch.

To be more precise a MPI5001.


I did the following:


config.txt - add this:


framebuffer_width = 800

framebuffer_height = 480


hdmi_force_edid_audio = 1

max_usb_current = 1

hdmi_force_hotplug = 1

config_hdmi_boost = 7

hdmi_group = 2

hdmi_mode = 1

hdmi_mode = 87

hdmi_drive = 1

hdmi_cvt 800 480 60 6 0 0 0


then install tslib:


- first changed /etc/opkg/venus.conf to develop

-than:


opkg update

opkg install qt4-embedded-plugin-mousedriver-tslib

opkg install tslib-calibrate


everything looks fine up to here.


then configured the calibrating files:


TSLIB_FBDEVICE = / dev / fb0

TSLIB_TSDEVICE = / dev / input / touchscreen0

TSLIB_CALIBFILE = / etc / pointercal

TSLIB_CONFFILE = / etc / ts.conf

TSLIB_PLUGINDIR = / usr / lib / ts


and than ts_calibrate


but nothings happend.


what am I doing wrong? Does somebody has any idea?


The touchscreen generally works, I also see a mouse pointer, only the size of the touch area is wrong


Best Regards Fabian

Hello everybody,


I was able to fix the problem by installing firmware version 2.60 for the Raspberry pi 4.

Hi, are you able to regulate the brightness of the HDMI screen through the Venus software?
