Can MIPI display be used with Ubuntu?

Hi,

I am trying to get the TS050 touchscreen working with the Edge-V while running Ubuntu. I’m wondering should this work out of the box, if not, can I get it to work by compiling a new kernel with the appropriate changes made to the dts file(as per https://docs.khadas.com/edge/ConnectLcd.html#4-MIPI-HDMI-Screen-Config) or will it only work on android. I have it working with android but would prefer to run ubuntu, the only documentation I can find is related to android.

Thanks in advance for anything that might point me in the right direction,

Rob

You can light up the Mipi screen by connecting properly here:

Hello @blueberryberret

For ubuntu, you need to edit file /boot/env.txt to enable the screen.

$ sudo vim /boot/env.txt

Change mipi_lcd_enabled=false to mipi_lcd_enabled=true and reboot the board.

$ sync
$ sudo reboot

Hi buddy, Have you got success on Ubuntu?

Hi, thanksto @goenjoy and @numbqq for your quick reply, very much appreciated. I can boot into ubuntu using a hdmi monitor and make the suggested change to /boot/env.txt, when I reboot however, it gets stuck on the boot logo whether I use the TS050 or a hdmi connection and I have to do a fresh install. Haven’t tried much else as I have been busy the last few days, but will give it another go this evening. Have you had any success with this?
