3. Installation and screen using

A. Preparation

- a screen Waveshare 4inch HDMI LCD.

- a set of operating system pre-installed Raspberry Pi, here we use Rasbian (Raspberry Pi 1 Model B or Pi Zero, which requires an HDMI cable). Moreover, you can use the Rasbian operating system provided by Waveshare that had a pre-installed driver for the screen. You just need to install and use it. It can be available on CD or can download to the https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxFRtACVZx9fdmk1R1U3bzR4WUk/view         

B. Getting started

We assemble it as follows:

C. Program Installation

We need to edit file config.txt in the Rasbian operating system to recognize the screen and install the touch driver. The first is editing file config, you just need to open the SD card that was installed in the operating system and you will see the file immediately. Then open that file and paste the code and save.
