Adafruit has today announced that their PiTFT touchscreen mini display not supported the new Raspberry Pi Zero mini POC that was launched back in November.
Raspberry Pi Zero support has been added to the Adafruit PiTFT kernel package to allow the small display to be used on Zero projects and full instruction on how to install the new support have been provided by Adafruit.
To install the new kernel, run the following command from your Pi Zero to add support for the 320×240 resolution screen :
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ curl -sLS https://apt.adafruit.com/pitft | sudo bash
Run the following command to view the PiTFT helper options:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ adafruit-pitft-helper -h
