circuitCo:beaglebone LCD 7 display cape and debian 8.3 image compatibility

I have a beaglebone black board installed Debian 8.3(Jessie) download from I want use a circuitCO:beaglebone LCD 7 to display, but I don’t know whether the circuitCO:beaglebone LCD is compatible with the debian 8.3(Jessie) image. Thank you for any answers.


I flashed my beaglebone black with Debian Jessie 8.3 too. The LCD 7’0 (4D System) works fine with the board. The LCD’s manual mentions Angstrom but doesn’t mention Debian distribution (section 3.2). For my experience, it’s compatible with the beaglebone black.
