      Did you use the newer kalipi-config and set boot mode to auto, and cli mode for user “pi” (default)?

      using “root” instead of user “pi” should also work i suppose…

      but it is not booting into the Touch Screen Button menus at my end either.

      i am using the 5 inch touch screen.

      I have the same problem with a waveshare 3,5″ screen. After boot I get a blank screen with a cursor on top left corner. If I log in cli mode and launch X I got an X error “no scrren found” but I can see the boot on the screen. What’s wrong?

      Yeah I am having the same issues. WS 3.5. After upgrade there is either a black screen with cursor, or after trying slim, no cursor. it will boot to cli, just no GUI on root or pi user.

      OK so I got it working. Update overlays, and tft tool, in kalipi-config. Uninstall old screen set up, reboot, then reinstall. Reboot again, then manually update re4son kernel. That was order i did it in and now have sticky menu and root desktop working again.

      Hi. I’m not sure if this is related or not, but I’m also having problems booting into the touch interface. I’ve traced the .profile into the menu script and I see several references to /dev/fb1 but when I mount the image as downloaded I only see one framebuffer device at /dev/fb0. I’ve looked at the kalipi-tft-config script and I see more references to /dev/fb1 but I don’t see where it’s being created. What am I missing? (Please don’t say “a brain”; it’s no polite and I’m already aware of that situation.)
