Setting up Hyperpixel with Resin-Electron-React


I’m trying to set up a Hyperpixel screen on a Resin OS 2.12.7+rev1 system with the resin-electronjs-react-boilerplate (

In one of a previous project that combination worked, but i didn’t do it so i don’t know why it’s not working now.
I followed the setup instructions on the Hyperpixel github site (, the automatic setup didn’t worked because I’m just logged in as root and not as a normal user with sudo rights (That isn’t possible, right?)

So i followed the manual instruction.

  1. Make sure you have the OpenGL video driver disabled. You must use the “Legacy (Non GL)” driver -> where can I do that in resin?

  2. Files from requirements/boot and place them in the relevant locations in /boot on your Pi. -> thats the overlays im coping into resin-boot/overlays. But when I’m looking into the directory through the webterminal I don’t see these files. Is it the wrong directory?

  3. Then, add the following to the bottom of your /boot/config.txt -> used the fleet configuration for that. So thats sadly the only point that worked.

Someone worked with the screen too and can help me?
