This page contains setup instructions for the Andino Terminal. For a general introduction on the product, please refer to Andino Terminal Overview.
The setup documentation will be completed once deliveries of the Andino Terminal begin.
Since the Andino Terminal is based on the Andino IO, the initial Baseboard setup is identical. Thus, the instructions as described in Andino IO: Baseboard Setup are a prerequisite for this tutorial.
The Nextion display of the terminal can be programmed using the Nextion Editor. Download and install the program, then create a new project. Here, go to Basic and choose NX4832T035_011 as the model. For display direction, choose 270 (horizontal), then confirm with OK. The project has now been created.
For detailed instructions on how to use the Nextion Editor itself, refer to the official Nextion Editor Guide.
The finished project can now be uploaded to the display. To do this, the project needs to be compiled into a TFT file. In the Editor, click File, TFT file output, then choose a directory to save the file in and hit Output. The TFT file can now be uploaded to the RaspberryPi (e.g. via SFTP over the network).
The display firmware can be uploaded from the Raspberry Pi to the display using our python library for the Andino Terminal. To install it, we first need to make sure that python3 and pip are installed:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install python3 sudo apt install python3-pip
Afterwards, the library can be downloaded:
