    Any successful LCD implementations?

    Seamus_M

      Have there been any documented successes with any other types of LED screens other then HDD44780? With my current setup I do not have the pins necessary to use this.

       

      I have tried I2C to no avail (SainSmart 2x16), and managed to get it working nicely in Arduino following the [SOLVED] I2C LCD - Setup instructions for 16x2 - Arduino Forum but I could not manage to get anything working for Galileo. I tried the modified LCD library as suggested in tis thread ( Re: How to interface a i2c LCD to Galileo i2c port) but to no avail as well.

      I see that the Adafruit shield may be working once some of these lines are modified, but using some of my existing boards would be ideal.

       

      I've thought about looking into trying my Nokia 5110 screen ( although I just tried the included library from Sparkfun and it does not compile for Galilo.

       

      /Users/<USERNAME>/Downloads/Arduino.app/Contents/Resources/Java/libraries/Robot_Control/glcdfont.c:1:20: fatal error: avr/io.h: No such file or directory

      compilation terminated.

       

      I suppose I could also try a serial LCD, but I'm not aware of any documented success for these either.
