Hi, I'm trying to wire a KS108 glcd to my chipKit Max32. And i've understood that the glcd lib for arduino will not work. ( cant' post arduino glcd link cause it's an off-site URL and the forum said my post was too spamy ) I'm trying to find a solution. Porting arduino glcd would be the best solution, but i dont think i have enough background to do that, i am ready to try but i have to learn a lot of things. I've understood that the cast of variable have too be changed, but it's a very poor starting point. Can someone point out things that have to be changed in source code for lib porting? ( I'ts look like it's not as simple, but i ask )

Does anyone have done something in this area for this glcd lib ? Is there any alternative lib, maybe not arduino compatible but that can run out of the box with chipKit ide ?

I've got one T6963C too and like with the KS108, I didn't find enough informations (for my knowledge level) to get it work.

thanks, mikael

I've succesfully compile and run the glcd lib for chip kit, using only generic arduino function (pinMode/digitalWrite/digitalRead)


I have had strange compiler problem but it's ok now, it was a user error, sorry for the noise.

While I know that this thread is extremely old, as a followup to this thread, I've just released a forked version of the glcd library in my openGLCD project. It is released as GPL v3 and can be found here: [url][/url] It has special performance optimizations for UNO32 and MAX32 but should also work on the other chipkit environments. It has been tested on an UNO32 using a 5v ks0108.
