U8g2 for arm-linux

Build Status

Check wiki here for set-up

Introduction

U8g2 is a monochrome graphics library for embedded devices, and I ported it onto arm linux.

It should work fine on virtually all devices running linux with i2c, spi support, since no libraries pertaining to specific platforms has been used, yet you need to choose right compilers for your devices.

How to compile

First, clone this repo:

$ git clone https://github.com/wuhanstudio/u8g2-arm-linux.git

$ cd u8g2-arm-linux

Change cross-compiler in Makefile under each example directory according to your board.

# Chosse proper compiler for your PI
# NanoPi:             arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc
# Raspberry Pi Zero:  arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc

# Raspberry Pi 2:     arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc
# OrangePi Zero:      arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc
# NanoPi NEO:         arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc
# NanoPi NEO Plus 2:  arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc
# C-SKY:              csky-linux-gcc	
CC = arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc

For cross-compile:

arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc   for armv6  
arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc for armv7

For native-compile (compile on your board), simply use:

CC = gcc

Finally, time to compile:

$ make

How to run

Before running, you can check your I2C graphic devices using i2c-tools:

$ sudo apt-get install i2c-tools

List your devices:

$ ls /dev/i2c*
/dev/i2c-0 /dev/i2c-1

Probe your devices on bus 0:

$ i2cdetect -y -r 0


For cross-compile, you can change ip address in Makefile:

# IP Address of your PI	
PI=pi@10.1.1.232

Then upload generated binary file onto your board:

$ make upload

Limitations

  • 8080mode not supported yet
