There are no recommended screens, but the minimum supported resolution is 480x320.

In general, if the device can show a GNU/Linux desktop, then KlipperScreen should work too.

Hardware known to work


Follow the manufacturer instructions on how to install your screen. In general if you see a white screen, then it's not properly installed, ensure that you at least see a console, Then install KlipperScreen, if you are having troubles refer to the troubleshooting page for further information.

Screen rotation

Configure the server to start in the desired orientation, there are many ways to achieve this, here are some examples:


Rotation is handled by the OS and not by KlipperScreen, if you can't rotate your screen it's usually an issue with the OS configuration


Create /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-monitor.conf

sudo nano /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/90-monitor.conf

Paste this section modifying the options to suit your needs:

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "DPI-1"
    # This identifier would be the same as the name of the connector printed by xrandr.
    # it can be "HDMI-0" "DisplayPort-0", "DSI-0", "DVI-0", "DPI-0" etc

    Option "Rotate" "left"
    # Valid rotation options are normal,inverted,left,right

    Option "PreferredMode" "1920x1080"
    # May be necesary if you are not getting your prefered resolution.
Save the file and restart KlipperScreen.

sudo service KlipperScreen restart

Raspberry Pi

To set screen orientation when in console mode, you will need to edit the kernel command line to pass the required orientation to the system.

sudo nano /boot/cmdline.txt

To rotate by 90 degrees clockwise, add the following to the cmdline, making sure everything is on the same line, do not add any carriage returns. Possible rotation values are 0, 90, 180 and 270.

Other values can be "HDMI-0" "HDMI-1, "DPI-0" etc
