You can connect up to four displays on one bus example schematic below , connecting all “RS” lines and seperate all “Enable” lines to one parallel port. DB7 on the parallel port are connected directly. You should consult the datasheet of your display before messing around with these values! This has been done in a delay loop, which had to be calibrated. You have to specify this signal with the Wire. I’ve used a LCD Display for developing an employee logging system with a custom keypad, with the whole thing being web-enabled.

These lines can be controlled by lcd4linux, and need an additional control signal from the parallel port.
CONFIG_HD44780: HD44780 Character LCD support
You need an additional control signal from the parallel port. Note that the old port programming only works with standard ports 0x3f8, 2f8, Powered by Hx44780 1. In the past, we tried to use worst-case values, as the timings differ from datasheet to datasheet. And here an example, two displays on one bus 16×4 and 20×2: The displays are connected to the parallel board see Wiring belowand are quite timing-critical.
Backlight entry in the config file the default is GNDi.
The LCDProc server starts first with the client programs connecting to it and displaying hd447780 information. But, what if you want a faster mechanism to display and want to do away with all this socket thing. I’ve used a LCD Display for developing an employee logging system with a custom keypad, with the whole thing being web-enabled. If you want to use busy-flag checking, you have to connect linjx to a control signal, which must be specified with the Wire.
If you specify a fuzz factor ofthis leads to all timings being multiplied by 1.
Control us GPO timings: This has been done in a delay loop, which had to be calibrated. This driver supports all display modules based on the Hitachi HD chip.
Add HD Character LCD support 
You have to specify this signal with the Wire. That’s what the Timing section in the lcd4linux.
This feature is available in V0. Normally a HDbased display has 14 or 16 pins, where pins 15 and 16 are used for backlight.
POWER entry in the config file. LCDs are manufactured by quite a few different companies. Here’s the schematic and board designed with eagle: It consists hd47480 a stabilized voltage regulator, a connector to the parallel port, the circuit to drive 8 LED’s, and two potentiometers to control backlight and contrast. There are several cheap commercially available displays which can be controlled through the computer’s parallel port or the serial port RS Brightness n sets the backlight level to n Backlight n turns the backlight on 1 or off 0 LCD:: Nd44780 you attempt to wire up the display with your computer remember that you have to be pretty cautious with what you do here otherwise you can damage either the display or hdd44780 computer, so if you are not aware of assembling simple electronic circuits, don’t get disheartened.
Pin 6 of Display 2 have to be connected to Pin 17 SelectIn? The driver fully supports the text, bar and icon widgets.
So here’s a translation table:. The HD is probably the most common display driver. Pin 3 is used to control the contrast, you can either hardwire it to GND pin 1 or place a potentiometer 10kk between pins 1 and 2, and connect pin 3 to the slider. First, there is the low-level timing on the parallel port, second is the execution time needed for various commands especially if you’re not using busy-flag checking. DB7 on the parallel port are connected directly.
DB7 on the display, DB By the time you’ve installed and configured LCDProc you must have realized that this software is actually based on a client-server model.
