Raspberry Pi Configure

Because 1024x600 is not a standard resolution, many embedded devices cannot support it by default, and need to modify the display configuration to display normally. For example, on the Raspberry Pi system, if the resolution information is not configured correctly, the content may not be displayed, and a black screen will appear, so you must configure the output display resolution of your device to 1024x600.

  • How to setup resolution on Rasbperry Pi(Raspberry Pi OS:Rasbian OS):
    • Modify /boot/config.txt file with vim.tiny or nano editor, and change the parameters as following chart:
Resolution config file

hdmi_cvt 1024 600 60 3 0 0 0

Please reboot Raspberry Pi after modifying the /boot/config.txt

  • Other OS need to modify the output resolution to 1024x600, otherwise it may not display well.

How to setup Resolution Automatically

There is a easy way to setup resolution of your screen by a shell script, you can download the scripts by git tool and use it to change resolution for your screens as following steps:
git clone https://github.com/geeekpi/lcd-config.git
cd ~/lcd-config
sudo chmod +x resolution_tool.sh
sudo bash resolution_tool.sh
and then follow the step to chose the screen type that you have, and it will automatically setup the resolution for you.
