Yep! That did it. Sorry for the confusion. I thought Logout would log out of the desktop (on both PiScreen and HDMI) and close all my programs, kicking me back to the first login screen after boot up. This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks very much!November 11, 2014 at 12:56 pm #2911
I'm not sure what happened, but after doing
sudo nano /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart
and add to the bottom of the file, on a new line, this text;
sudo /bin/sh /etc/X11/Xsession.d/xinput_calibrator_pointercal.sh
and rebooting, I got this error: https://i.imgur.com/VzaaCLG.jpg I don't know if it's realted to what I did but it happened. I googled it and after a few commands, was able to log in.
I'm not sure I understood what you said. What I did was I didn't set it up to boot up and show X Windows on the PiScreen right away. Each time I boot up, it works on HDMI and to get it to display on PiScreen I run
and it works. That's what I like. I was just wondering if there's a similar simple command to run that makes it go back to HDMI and display on my TV after running
. So in other words, I boot up my Pi, log in, it works on HDMI, I run
to switch over to PiScreen, and now when I want to switch back to HDMI, what is the simplest thing to do here?
Here is my commanline.txt file: https://i.imgur.com/LoWit6R.jpg (that's all of it on screen). I don't have

Also, thanks for the PolicyKit Authentication Agent tickbox suggestion. It got rid of the error. And resizing the icons works as well, so thank you.November 7, 2014 at 12:05 pm #2896
Thanks for your help and easy to follow guide. I got it working, but at this step
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo sh -c ‘echo “sudo /bin/sh /etc/X11/Xsession.d/xinput_calibrator_pointercal.sh” >> /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart’
it said Permission Denied. I made sure to copy it with the quotes exactly. Either frame, on the next step, it started X Windows on the PiScreen. But, I keep getting this error: http://i.imgur.com/4944UXL.jpg?1 even after rebooting. I haven't set it to auto start on the piscreen just yet. Is this fixable?
Also, I was wondering two things:
1) Is there a way to easily switch back to HDMI from the PiScreen?
2) Is there a way to fit the desktop better to the PiScreen? Maybe like a bit zoomed out than it is now. As you can see in the screenshot with the error here http://i.imgur.com/4944UXL.jpg?1 , there are only about 6 icons on the screen, whereas through HDMI I see my entire desktop with about 10 icons. Even the Minecraft icon is off the screen at the bottom. Or possible a way to scroll around the screen to see more of it?
Thanks again.November 6, 2014 at 12:13 pm #2889
The files do not end with a '~'.
So I got the file saved correctly, and after that the PiScreen backlight started working. The screen is black but backlit (so like dark grey). I finished the steps in the guide and ran the test. This appeared on my screen: https://i.imgur.com/BOdAERj.jpg (I see an error but don't know what it means) and on the Pi: https://i.imgur.com/JMXrIFr.jpg
After pressing enter on the screen, this was the output https://i.imgur.com/6rwvsIE.jpg
I'm not sure if this test succeeded since the image appeared on the display, or if it failed because there were errors.
I still can't get the desktop image to appear on the piscreen.November 5, 2014 at 2:29 pm #2875
Thanks. I was just closing the nano screen and it wouldn't ask me anything. I didn't do ctrl-x. Is it okay if those extra save file exist or will they mess something up? And at which point in the process should I plug in the PiScreen and expect something to show up on the display?
