    Using a waveshare 3.5 touch screen with the raspberry pi

    so I follow this guide https://whitedome.com.au/re4son/sticky-fingers-kali-pi/ on installing the the touch screen but one problem the new kali image for the pi does not have these two file needed to finish the installation.
    "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-fbturbo.conf
    /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-calibration.conf"

    I should of say this is the waveshare uses the gpio pin not hdmi port
    I'm using a pi 2 b+

    Hi makeitjustin,

    Those files are not required for the installation of your screen.
    What error message did you get?

    Have you tried this pre-installed image:

    https://whitedome.com.au/re4son/stic...stalled-image/

    That'll get you up and running in a minute without any hassles.

    Hope that helps,

    Shouldn't happen with a new image.
    You can put the sdcard in a linux PC and run fsck over it, e.g.:

    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    sudo fsck /dev/mmcblk1p1 -y
    sudo fsck /dev/mmcblk1p2 -y
    That should do the trick.

    If that doesn't work pm me to sort it out.

    Hope that helps,

    I've added a new type "wave35c" to the "re4son-pi-setup" tool. That should work for you and everybody else with a waveshare clone.
    Run:
    Code:
    ./re4son-pi-tft-setup -d
    for the old version or
    Code:
    ./re4son-pi-tft-setup -u
    for newer versions to update the program, then
    Code:
    ./re4son-pi-tft-setup -r
    to remove any old configs you may have, and then
    Code:
    ./re4son-pi-tft-setup -t wave35c -d /root
    to set up the new screen

    That should get you up and running in no time
