Hi @jaski.tx !

This seems to work out, I get picture doing the boot but as soon as X11 starts it goes over to HDMI instead.

I created a 10-monitor.conf looking like this, but it just seem to fail, any thoughts?

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "HDMI-1"
    Option "ignore" "true"
Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "LVDS-1"
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "LVDS"
    Driver      "vivante"
    Screen        1
    Option      "fbdev"     "/dev/fb0"
    Option      "vivante_fbdev" "/dev/fb0"
    Option      "HWcursor"  "false"
Section "Screen"
    Identifier    "Screen-0"
    Device        "LVDS"
    Monitor        "LVDS-1"

HI @bohn

Could you provide the software version of your module?

Please share your device-tree and dmesg.log in a text file?

Thanks and best regards,


Not sure how i find device-tree and software version

Found that I missed the patch with the fix for mxc_hdmi.only_cea=1…


Not sure how i find device-tree and software version

uname -a for the Software version.

Have you done any changes to the Software you are using?
Where did you download the Software?

Best regards,

Hi @bohn

Ok. Is the issue solved now?

Hi @bohn and Welcome to the Toradex Community!

Sorry for the delayed answer.

It seems, that you have single channel 18-bit display.

The VDD Pin 1 and 2 from the display should be connected to Pin 32 for 3.3V or 34 for 5V.

You need to connect to LVDS1_A_TX0_N to IN0-, … till LVDS1_A_TX2_N to IN2-. The LVDS1_A_TX3_P and LVDS1_A_TX3_N, could be kept unconnected. Further all the Pins LVDS1_B_xx can be kept unconnected.

Pixel Clock (14, 15) should be connected to LVDS1_A_CLK_X (25, 27).
The Pins (3, 4) can be kept unconnected.
And the Pin 20 from the display should be connected to Pin 35 of the LVDS connector on Ixora.
Finally for the backlight, you need to connect Pin1 to Pin 39/40 of the LVDS Connector on Ixora.

If you still have questions, please feel free to ask.

Best regards,

Perfect that it works, Thanks for the feedback.


I solved this now, I had it correct all along, all but the resolution that I accidentally put it wrong…

Thanks for all help!
