Yes I did see that it the fbtft repo wasn’t being developed, that was how I got to the link they give. I was looking here https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/staging.git/tree/drivers/staging/fbtft?h=staging-testing
I don’t know the basics of adding something to the linux kernel, or where to look. It never occurred to me that itself would be on github! Seems very obvious now that’s where it would all be. I guess I would need to learn a lot more about the basics before getting SSD1327 working.
Thank you for the aliexpress link, I guess I was just being impatient ordering from Amazon in the states with free 2-day shipping. SSD1305 seems to max out at 128x64, which I think would be very hard to work with? Could be a fun experiment for $4 USD though.
BUT there is the SSD1351, in the linux/drivers/staging/fbtft/ tree which is 128x128 full color! Sadly this is getting to the point where I could have spent the money on the OzzMaker screen and supported the Zynthian project more.
Just personally, $18 Landzo 3.5" TFT + $17 Grayscale OLED + possible $16 Color OLED AliExpress = $51 USD (across 4 months)
Should have just bought the OzzMaker display, oh well, that’s the cost of trying to diy too many things and once cheaply. I like just like the look of tiny monochrome displays, like the black on gray Yamaha QY70 classic LCD or the Organelle OLED interface. Was trying to avoid color honestly! I love color, just like the small mono displays too.
Mostly just want a compact, stable case for Zynthian with audioInjector and 3.5" TFT to make music instead of creating more challenges.
Sorry this hasn’t really been a contribution to the project, I know everyone is very busy, and I mostly only have 25 years of MS-DOS experience and a little Linux every year or so. I understand coding concepts but never stuck with it. It’s pretty magical, like diy electronics, but maybe I’m too impatient. Anyways, sorry for the ramble, thanks guys.
