    Hi All
    I'm installing the piScreen on a Pi2 usng NooBs. When running the calibration script I'm getting Permission Denied.

    sudo sh -c ‘echo “sudo /bin/sh /etc/X11/Xsession.d/xinput_calibrator_pointercal.sh” >> /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart’: Permission denied

    How do I fix this?

    Cheers
    Darren

    the 'permission denied' messages happens when the double or single quotes don't get copied across.
    When you paste it in from the web page, double check all quotes are not converted to a "."

    Thanks Mark, I truly appreciate the quick response.

    I entered the text manually and still get the same results.

    all this command is doing is updating the file /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart

    try and do it manually
    sudo nano /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart

    add this text to the bottom

    sudo /bin/sh /etc/X11/Xsession.d/xinput_calibrator_pointercal.sh

    if forgot to add that if you are using a later image or a Pi 2, this file can be found at

    /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart
