Help please (Easy install) gives me overlapping icons

by Mastergenie on Thu Aug 10, 2017 8:36 am

Hello there,

So I bought the 2.8 capacitive touch screen PID 2423 and downloaded the easy install image to the SD. It booted up perfect except once raspbian loaded all of my icons at the top overlapped each other making it difficult for me to even click on the terminal without interference. Is there a way to fix this or must I follow the detailed instructions? I tried doing so already and I found that I was missing important files trying the regular raspbian jessie download. Do you guys over at Adafruit have any suggestions?

Nothing to do with the installation method. The problem is that Raspbian doesn't scale anything - it just tries to squeeze everything into the small screen space.

You can scale the display with fbcp:
