I tried this (con2fbmap 1 1) from the lxterm (on the desktop) and nothing happened, but then I saw you were using the term "command line" and decided to try it from the non desktop command line so I did a ctrl+alt+F2 then a ctrl+alt+F1 to get to the original command line.DirkS wrote:What happens when you use 'con2fbmap 1 1' on the command line (doesn't matter if HDMI plugged in or not).
I can switch console from HDMI to pitft by using 'con2fbmap 1 x' (x=0 for hdmi, 1 for pitft).
While on the login screen I can only see that by the appearing / disappearing cursor at the login prompt.
As soon as I hit the ctrl+alt+F1 it switched to the TFT, from the TFT a con2fbmap 1 0 switches it back to the HDMI.
I can switch back and forth at will and like you say only the blinking cursor shows which is currently active.
but it wont switch during boot.
