Linux Mint 19.1lcdproc and Futaba mdm 166a

Post by jimthedj65 »

Hi All,

I hope this is useful to someone who is interested in building lcdproc with a vfd display, specifically the Futaba mdm 166a, the steps below will get your display working.

Giant thanks to seahawk1986!!!!!

manually:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:seahawk1986-hotmail/lcdproc-futaba-mdm166a

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get -y install lcdproc

zcat /usr/share/doc/lcdproc/LCDd.conf.gz | sed 's/^Driver=.*/Driver=mdm166a/' | sudo tee /etc/LCDd.conf

sudo systemctl enable LCDd.service

sudo systemctl start LCDd.service

your LCDd should come alive with the mdm166a display
