RE: 5" LCD Cape Touch Display/Working Models


There was this nice person. This nice person helped me.

If you have this Cape for your BBB/BBG,, there are some things to get up and running.

If I am not mistaken, use this command for your SD Card usage and for the eMMC when on 4.19.x:

sudo /opt/scripts/tools/developers/


That command will update your bootloader to the updated version that this nice person patched earlier in the uboot_overlay section of his/her scripts.

Okay so!

Also, check the your file at /opt/scripts/tools/:

sudo /opt/scripts/tools/


dogtag:[ Debian Image 2018-10-07] is my image and my kernel is kernel:[4.19.59-ti-r26].


P.S. I think this nice person already updated the uboot_overlay section. So, things should work out of the box now. I am going to update my kernel soon. I will let people know how things go.

Hello Again,

Oh and another thing…

sudo apt install xfce4

This command will get you the XFCE UI for your debian distro on the BBB/BBG. I have not tested this Cape on the BBGW or the BBBW thus far.

I am sure there are things that are in the way, e.g. pins that are already used up due to the chip for WiFi/Bluetooth.


P.S. Testing will ensue!
