    Hi all, I could use some help getting the console on my piscreen...

    I have tested the piscreen using ts_test and all is fine there (though I didn't find how to close the program); but even though I added the line

    fbcon=map:10 fbcon=rotate:2 fbcon=font:ProFont6x11 to my /boot/cmdline.txt file, rebooting still shows the console on my tv and not on the piscreen.

    Any ideas how to troubleshoot this? I have updated everything to the latest versions according to the (very detailed) instructions.

    Hi.

    Did you add the above text to the end of the file? It will not work if it is on a new line.
    can you show me the output of cat /boot/cmdline.txt

    Hi Mark, I did indeed put it on a new line. On reading your instructions again, I now notice that you said it needed to be added to the first line - I missed that part. Still, it may be a good idea to specifically mention that it won't work if it's a new line, since that would probably have prevented my own question ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for your feedback, and congrats on the case design. It's clever and useful and looks great.
