Ok,
I have the glcd Leonardo macro mappings code that needs testing.
I would prefer to work with someone that has both a standard Arduino board (m328) and a Leonardo
for this testing.
What I want to do is get everything up and running on the standard Arduino to make sure everything
is hooked up properly and working.
For the leonardo testing, I have created identical pin mappings for the Leonardo so that all that will be necessary
is to move the wires from the Arduino to the Leonardo.
While not the ideal pin configuration, it should make the wiring and testing much easier.
Anybody that wants to work with me on this, please PM me your email address so we can communicate
further offline to get things working.

I'm in. I'd change the config files myself (i'm an embedded system engineer) but i am on business travel and have little time to "play" with my leaonardo board. I started working on the needed changes last evening and also noticed the completly unfavorable pin layout. Anyways feel free to send me any source files and i'll gladly test the functionality and report back.

Hi everyone,

I know, its just an old topic ... but has anyone got an KS0108 compatible 128x64 LCD working with GLCD library and leonardo (in my case a TG12864B)?

There are somme issues too, because I need leonardo ports 0-3 (int0-3) for additional hardware (alert and time pulses).

Some help would be great because I'm new to arduino, only done some small projects (DCF77 with 2x16 LCD and other little tests).

Thanks

dirk,
I've not created another glcd library release yet.
The next release will have 32u4 support in it, which includes support
for Leonardo, Micro, and LillyPadUSB.
For the time being I've created a set of patch files that can be used to add
ks0108 leonardo support into the glcd v3 release.
It isn't as complete as what would be in a full release in that it only works
with the default ks0108 panel file.
But for standard 128x64 ks0108 displays it should work just fine.

Here is a link to the google project sited where you can download the zip image
of the files: http://code.google.com/p/glcd-arduino/downloads/list

As far as your pin needs go, the included documentation includes instructions
for how to change the pins that are used. While you can't reduce the number of pins
used, you can change which pins are used.
See the included html files for the details.
(There are instructions on the ks0108 playground page and on the google project
glcd v3 download page for where to  locate the html documentation)

For additional assistance on things like pin mappings, please start a new thread.

Thanks a lot, I've downloaded the patches.
I will try my best and will report about.
