Re: uBTIX Nextion Display and microSD card woes #ubitx

Linux doesn't show hidden files by default.  But you can see them by typing:

ls -al

in a terminal window when you're in the directory you want to examine.  To hide a file, rename it with a dot ('.') as the first character.

Another thing to watch out for, at least it's something that has caused me some grief at times when loading the tft files on various displays...

You may get a message on the display that the load failed because there is more than one .tft file on the SD card but when you look you see only one. You need to be sure to enable viewing hidden files in file explorer (Windows) or finder (on a Mac)...there's probably one with the .tft suffix that you need to delete. I don't think either one of them will show hidden files by default. Not sure about Linux.

The 1G SD card I had was plenty big for the tft file.
