Change Nextion driver ?

Post by oz1cbk » Fri Nov 08, 2019 9:12 am

Is it possible to uninstall EA5KL driver so I can install ON7LDS driver.
Now it just writes that the latest driver is installed.
I don't want to start over again with new image to change driver.
Is it feasible and possible? how ? Thank You.

For simplicity's sake the answer is no. That fork has added all kinds of extra scripts and things, and for me to explain how to remove it all would take more time than it would for you to just reimage and start over.

Maybe you could contact EA5KL and he can take the time to write up how to remove all of his scripts.

You could follow my instructions on how to reinstall the latest Nextion Driver, but again that isn't going to clean up all the extra scripts that EA5KL installed, but it is a lazy way and would at least get it back to running ON7LDS's version.

Make sure you delete the NextionDriverInstaller directory, before you redownload and run ON7LDS's NextionDriver install script.

Code: Select all

rpi-rw
rm -rf NextionDriverInstaller 
git clone https://github.com/on7lds/NextionDriverInstaller.git
then follow these instructions.

Thats about all the time I can afford to waste helping you with your issue, so good luck, but if I were you I'd just start over, only takes me about 10 minutes to redo a hotspot.

Okay. Thank You.
I did not know anything about it, that's why I ask.
Then I make a new image.
Thanks for your time.
