LVGL with platformio lv_conf.h not found

Description

I’m attempting to run LVGL on the ESP32 using PlatformIO. It seems like menuconfig is not finding the kconfig file and therefore an lv_conf.h file is not created. At least thats my understanding of how its supposed to work.

What MCU/Processor/Board and compiler are you using?

ESP32-WROOM-32D with an SSD1306 compiled with PlatformIO/CMake

What do you want to achieve?

I would like to get past the compilation errors saying that lv_conf.h can’t be found. This definitely seems related to the kconfig files not being detected by menuconfig.

What have you tried so far?

I would like to include the libraries for lvgl and lvgl_esp32_drivers using lib_deps but I also tested bringing them in as a submodule. Both methods failed with the same errors.

Code to reproduce

Add the relevant code snippets here.
In platformio.ini

lib_deps = 
	lvgl/lvgl @ ^7.10.0
	lvgl_esp32_drivers=https://github.com/lvgl/lvgl_esp32_drivers.git#6b08c3fcce0e12b44a171ef88059b52efc0269ad

The errors:

And it goes on beyond that but you get the idea… Can’t find lv_conf.h

You need to add an lv_conf.h in your src directory.
