Hi, I finally have things working on my raspberry pi with a 3.5″ lcd. Debian installs fine and I can see the GUI, I then install retropie using the install script and set it to auto launch emulationstation on boot.
However, now the emulationstation only outputs on HDMI and the console is showing on the LCD.
How can I make emulationstation show on the LCD instead as default?
Many thanks :)retronerdParticipant09/20/2015 at 18:22Post count: 4
Hello, devs? Surely you must know the answer to this?herbfargusMember09/20/2015 at 18:37Post count: 1858
a few minutes on google:
I don’t have the hardware so theres no way I could test but it seems to be explained well enough in the aformentioned posts.AnonymousInactive10/17/2015 at 20:03Post count: 2
I got this working on my Tontec 3.5 Inch Touch Screen. What you will need to do is setup Framebuffer Mirroring using the rpi-fbcp program on github.
After you have setup your screen, and it is displaying, you will need to execute these linux commands to compile and install the Framebuffer Mirroring program:
sudo apt-get install cmake git clone https://github.com/tasanakorn/rpi-fbcp cd rpi-fbcp/ mkdir build cd build/ cmake .. make sudo install fbcp /usr/local/bin/fbcp #now make sure you are cd'ed into the build folder, now run the program: fbcp & #now you can run emulation station: emulationstation
This program basically copies screen frames over from fb0 (hdmi) to fb1 (lcd screen).

Thanks to you jdj333, for the first time retropie is showing up on my 3,5 lcd screen.
Sadly the problem is back after reboot.
Any ideas?AnonymousInactive10/19/2015 at 15:49Post count: 2
After a reboot I make sure I am in the build directory which contains the compiled fbcp program and should probably be located in rpi-fbcp/build/ on your Pi. After I CD to that directory, I execute the fbcp program again and then EmulationStation. Try the following commands after a reboot:
cd rpi-fbcp/build/ fbcp & emulationstation
