Have a 8Gb Pi 4, Running a custom IMG built on Picore.

Cannot get the touch screen to work.


The img was setup for a makerpane 5" screen and due to cost reasons I picked up a cheaper screen that was said to be working with Raspbian.

I got it working on a full raspbian os myself using the provided config info and doing the sudo get command.

I cannot get the Sudo get command working on the core OS.  I did bring in the config settings.

I went to the git hub they provided and download ported in the config file text they suggested to use.

 I am not a linux guy, I have tried now for two weeks various forums and different settings. I am trying to get a custom screen that someone made and nicely shared an img for an electric bike. 

I have gotten everything else working, the communication is working to the bike! I just need the touch screen fixed. 

I included the original config file from the img, which works with the makerpane screen.
And also the modded one which I ported the information in from the LCD5-Show.



Screen is a "ELECROW 5 Inch Raspberry Pi Screen Touchscreen 800x480 TFT LCD Display HDMI Monitor"

I cannot express how thankful I would be if someone could aid or figure this out.

Ok, the driver was actually in the latest 13x Kernel for this screen !!! ( Thank you)

The last part I am having an issue with is calibrating the screen.

The screen is set to Rotate=2 which is needed.

How ever the touch screen is not flipping with it, and is not backwards.

So two things I need help with, the calibration of touch and flipping the axis.
