From the Forums: Using a graphics LCD display with the Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Thanks to dragger from the Adafruit forums for posting this video tutorial and Python library for the Graphic ST7565 Negative LCD Display. Check out more details here.

This tutorial demonstrates how to hook up a 128×64 graphics LCD display to a Raspberry Pi.

I have another tutorial if you are interested in 16×2 LCD Displays with the Pi. Unlike the 16×2 which is primarily simple text, the graphics LCD makes it easy to draw graphics, different size text in any font and even play games or show animations. This is the Adafruit ST7565 graphics negative LCD display:

It can be powered directly from the Pi’s 3.3V rail. It requires 5 GPIO pins for data. The display has a negative RGB back light which allows you change the foreground color. An additional 3 GPIO pins are required if you want to control the color from the Pi.
