I was given a few of these LCD’s, and I thought it would be fun to create a project with them.
Then I remembered I have no idea how to use an LCD.
Most of the libraries I’ve seen are using SPI, which I assume communicates with the LCD driver, which does all the heavy lifting for displaying on the LCD.
I’m having a hard time locating a driver that would work for this LCD, and I was hoping I could get pushed in the right direction here.
This was the first place I thought of for this project, if you know a better place I should ask I would appreciate it.

It seems that no one has ever tried to use one of those displays with an Arduino. So you will have to figure out everything by yourself - what looks like a very exciting project!
You can try some basic stuff and try to get some result. To begin with, power the display (pins 9 and 10, probably 11), choose a video mode (pins 21, 22, 23), applying some backlight (pin 18).
Then go further and try to print something on it. As there are H-sync, V-sync and R G B inputs, it may be (or maybe not) similar to a VGA display, so try using the VGA library. One example here.
Tell us about your progress, it would be very interesting!
