Waveshare 7″ 1024×600 HDMI Display in Raspbian – Part 1: Software

This one doesn’t actually deserve much Text. I got the display from here. If you wanna connect the display to the raspberry pi, go to the console on the pi and type:

sudo nano /boot/config.txt

Add the following codes to the end of the file:

#Settings in /boot/config.txt for the 7" Waveshare 2.1 Display in Raspbian
# set current over USB to 1.2A
max_usb_current=1
config_hdmi_boost=7
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
# HDMI config
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=1
hdmi_mode=87
# 1024x600 display
hdmi_cvt=1024 600 120 6 0 0 0
hdmi_drive=1

Hit CTRL+x and proceed by clicking the y-key.  One reboot later and you should be all set. Happy Coding!
