I'm using the new SOM based on STM32MP1 micro to replace an old design based on A13-SOM.
I connected the SOM to an Olimex LCD display 7" (no touchscreen).

I downloaded the image "STM32MP1-OLinuXino-SOM-focal-minimal-20210821-133514.img.7z" and tried to boot from the generated SD. It works even if the console on the LCD display is not correctly centered.

I need the graphic environment to open a Chromium browser in a window on the LCD display.

How can I launch the graphic environment ? Is it supported on the standard image ?

Thanks in advance.


Currently, there is no software support for STM32 boards and the displays in Olimage image. We are working on such for a future release. Once it is available you would be able to configure the software for LCD output using the olinuxino-display script.

You still would need console access to the board to execute the script.

For more info refer to this document:
Technical support and documentation manager at Olimex


Update: overlays for STM32P15x boards are now available, run:

sudo apt update

sudo apt upgrade

reboot the board and then run the:

script olinuxino-display

If this fails, maybe re-write the card with latest release from the repo here:
