Installing The ON7LDS Nextion Display Driver

Hello, And Welcome! Within these instructional webpages are the images and instructions on how to install the Nextion Display Driver.
As We could just give you a list of things to do, We feel that giving images and text of what you should see and do will be more beneficial. We've reviewed this guide several times to make sure it is as correct as possible.
Make SURE that your NEXTION DISPLAY is ALREADY displaying values being sent by the MMDVMHost within Pi-Star!
Is It Already Displaying Your Callsign, The Date, And Time On The IDLE Screen?
Does It Switch To A Mode Screen When YOU or Someone else Is Transmitting?
If it is NOT, DO NOT Install ANY Display Driver just YET, this will only add to your installation headaches. Remember here, if it isn't working already, then there's a GOOD possiblilty that it'll never work right! Go now and make sure it is working before you proceed. Get HELP to fix this situation BEFORE continuing with ANY Display Driver installation.
Can things go wrong? Yes they can. It doesn't always mean that you did something wrong, and, doesn't mean that this guide is wrong. Pi-Star and the Nextion Display Driver are based on a platform that is always changing. An upgrade to the Raspian Operating system can make the end result change. Don't sweat it, just reboot and try again.
