LCD Display
 
:newbie:

i am about to install GNU/Linux for the first time.. And i hope that somebody can help me at little.. I have this LCD Display ..

Controller - L.I.S 2 : USB 1.1 / 2.0 support
- L.I.S POP : Serial
LCD - Liquid Crystal Display
- Blue Negative type
- 5 x 8 Dot's
- HD44780 Compatible
- Character type
- 20 x 2 Size

It's connected to a internal USB port and in windows device manger there is a USB serial converter and a USB Serial port, the driver for those two a From FTDI..

Can i get this to work with GNU/Linux coz. that would be nice.. :)

If it's supported by GNU/Linux is there anyone who knows about programs so i can display different thing on the LCD display

If i have posted in the wrong forum. I'm very sorry

Brian

Maybe.
I don't have any actual experience using a USB serial converter but this link might help.

You can use any serial application like minicom or gtkcomm (GUI) to send characters to the display. You can also write an application in c too.

I'd suggest looking at http://www.lcdproc.org/
Traditionally the displayes used are serial (or even parallel) but there is apparently usb support now, too.
