I highly suggest you take advice like this to heart when putting together a project! From my experience RPi displays (and SoC's screens in general) range from plug-and-play simple all the way to the other extreme of having to spend hours/days of research and hope & pray all you have to do is hack a library for something kinda/sorta similar because no one has ever heard of the piece of shit screen you got for 'a great deal' from some Chinese distributor!

That's the good outcome of this bad scenario! In reality you might even have to put together a new connector and change some components because the seller didn't mention it was some scrapped screen that like one guy figured out how to re-purpose for his RPi five years ago on a blog that only exists on thewaybackmachine now...

I even had one display I gave up on ever getting to work, so... THANK YOU so much for articles like this one @danie10 !!! It might be too late for me, but maybe others can avoid a nightmare scenario! ;P
