TFT touch screen support request from the Kali Forums
Several weeks ago a request in the Kali forums prompted us to look at the integration of the Adafruit 2.8in TFT touch screen for Kali Linux. A few weeks and much less hair later, we are happy to announce the availability of this image in our Offensive Security custom Kali images section.
Great for various Raspberry Pi projects
Although slightly on the expensive side – especially compared to the Raspberry Pi itself – a small functional touch screen that can do a whopping 320×240 resolution can be extremely useful at times. We used it in one of our hardware projects and implemented a couple of Desktop shortcuts that would “start” and “stop” our automated tool, giving us both an input and output source.
Source code for the Kali Raspberry Pi TFT touch screen image
Due to the nature of the patches and image configuration, we had to build a separate image for the TFT Kali Raspberry Pi image. However, our build script for this image can easily be modified to accommodate any changes you may require. As with all our custom Kali Linux ARM images, we can find the source of the build script in our Offsec github page.
