As for, "Add brightness node and support backlight control for DSI Touch Display". . .

/sys/class/backlight is still empty (unlike Raspbian), and no GUI or other method to control the backlight is apparent to me.

Can you be a bit more explicit about ASUS's implementation of this feature?

Thanks again.

Hi, mikeKey
   Can you try this path /sys/devices/platform/ff150000.i2c/i2c-3/3-0045/tinker_mcu_bl ?
   You can echo 0 ~ 255 into this node.

My TinkerBoard S booted the 1st time I tried it (in about 5 secs)  and displayed the TinkerBoard wallpaper and a single Trash Can icon in the upper-left corner of the screen.  No task bar is visible or any other controls.  The desktop context menu (rt-click on the wallpaper) displayed as expected and my  mew Logitech cordless keyboard moved the popup menu.  Having used the current Etcher to flash the 20180622-tinker-board-linaro-stretch-alip-v2.0.7.img I can't imagine how I could have possibly screwed this up.  This isn't my 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd exposure to Linux, in fact in a prev life I used to install and customize text-only FreeBSD file servers on occasion.  I even tried the previous release 20170417-tinker-board-linaro-stretch-alip-v1.8.img, no joy.  One icon, no task bar, nothing.   Anyway, the Micro USB power port on my TB seems to have failed this AM, so I'm on timeout til I recv the replacement from Amazon.  Could the board been otherwise defective ?  Doesn't seem likely, but we'll see in a couple days.  Could it be I just happened to download defective Tinker OS images ?

Turns out when I had a working board (for more than a couple hours) I played w/ the Recycle Bin and from its About Box I was reminded of keystroke navigation in the GUI, which then inspired the idea of a screen resolution/geometry issue and maybe there was a taskbar, just off screen.  So Ctrl+Esc displayed the main LXDE menu and I eventually found the Monitor Settings applet and I was able start using my Tinker Board !  Excluding a Synaptic prob I'm researching now, I had a few good hours last nite w/ my new acquisition.....

Because the first versions of Tinker OS were buggy and later versions brought display problems like those mentioned by @jetman3 I didn't use my Tinker board for quite a long time. Today I wanted to use it again for a headless server project, installed 20181023-tinker-board-linaro-stretch-alip-v2.0.8.img.zip and my display problems were away, right from the beginning!  Cool

I can run this command with Tinker-OS V2.0.8 correctly.

Can't get VNC to work in V2.0.8. I read about missing fonts and found some guides to add these components but it's still not working. There is still a error about missing Type1 fonts. Did somebody figured this out?

Hi,

I'm new to Tinker Board.

Trying to run an image file (etching won't work - has to be run from USB or the microSD card).  Does anyone know how I can run an image file from a USB port with the target being the onboard SSD?

Many thanks.

The first stage to boot, it must be on a SD card or eMMC (for S version) then you'll be able to boot USB, PXE or other devices according u-boot compilation.
