LCD Linux Driver


New member
Does anyone know of a driver for Linux (I am using Red Hat 6.2) that will allow me to just type straight to the LCD?

For example:
I have a driver running as a server and I simple output to /dev/lcd or to the program and it puts the output on the LCD?

I have heard of this for other LCD screens, but wondering if its available on the CrystalFontz displays?

(I an using the 20x4 serial 634 LCD from CFontz btw)
Looking for additional LCD resources? Check out our LCD blog for the latest developments in LCD technology.

I have tried searching but have not been able to find anything for the Cyrystal Fontz 20x4 LCD, my friend has one for his LCD but its a different type and therefore the instructions are different, would require alot of mods to get working....
