Your keyboard has a problem; It's missing the dot and the comma...

There's a link in the post FotL linked to: https://github.com/notro/rpi-firmware#install
After running that rpi-update command you will need to edit /boot/config.txt. Add

Code: Select all

dtparam=spi
dtoverlay=waveshare22
(see https://github.com/notro/fbtft/wiki#install)

Yes, but can't guarantee it will work. I use it with an Adafruit PiTFt on a Pi2b. Screen works fine, no joy with touch yet, though.

Which img from what link?
The image has to support Pi2B otherwise you will not even get the Pi started...
So it could be irrelevant if it supports your lcd or not.

You need to install Raspbian OS, obviously you will need a Standard Monitor or use SSH for
initial configuration, then install Notro Drivers as per the link in the post I linked to....
