Last Resort to Make the Screen Work

If your screen never shows the console or bootup text during startup, it is typically due to an improperly installed screen. See Physical Install Issues for more information.

Boot Screen

  2. Ensure Proper Functionality
    Make sure the screen is working properly, including both display and touch functionality.

    sudo systemctl set-default && sudo reboot

  4. Reboot and Install KlipperScreen
    Wait for the system to reboot and then proceed to install KlipperScreen.
