I am running balena-pihole project which includes PADD on my raspberry pi 3 using balena cloud and following these instructions. The pihole+dnscrypt-proxy work as expected except of PADD which is supposed to automatically run when it detects the pitft display.
Here are the instructions for enabling driver of the mentioned pitft 2.8" display (just from another project): https://github.com/balena-io-projects/balena-wpe#capacitive-touchscreen. The configuration of both these displays, as we can see actually, looks almost the same.
The display seems to work well after adding the following balena vars:
RESIN_HOST_CONFIG_gpu_mem = 64 RESIN_HOST_CONFIG_dtoverlay = pitft28-capacitive,rotate=270,speed=25000000,fps=20 RESIN_HOST_CONFIG_hdmi_cvt = 320 240 60 1 0 0 0 RESIN_HOST_CONFIG_hdmi_force_hotplug = 1 RESIN_HOST_CONFIG_hdmi_group = 4 RESIN_HOST_CONFIG_hdmi_mode = 87
I expect PADD to appear on the pitft display automatically after adding the configuration variables in BalenaCloud app and rebooting the pi. Am I wrong? Do I need to do any additional configurations which are not mentioned in the PADD setup instructions?
What actually happens: after booting pi the screen is white with the Balena Logo, then after I see in pihole application logs
Starting PADD the screen turns black, but no text is visible.
Please help to make PADD work with the mentioned display.
