Recently I bougt one of those tiny Sainsmart 1.8 inch displays to use it as a secondary monitor for my Kodi-based (raspian) media center in the living room.
The setup was pretty easy and
fbi showed up pictures on the display five minutes after I got the wiring done. \o/
The problems started when I tried to run some demo
pygame code on it. All I got was an error I did not understand because everything was setup correctly.
Traceback (most recent call last): File "test.py", line 19, in pygame.display.set_mode() pygame.error: No video mode large enough for 128x160
After fiddling around for a while, I created the file
/etc/fbmodes with the following content:
mode "128×160" geometry 128 160 128 160 16 timings 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 endmode
Works for me. Errors gone. =)
