Then you need the datasheet for the part, and you can work out how to hang the thing either on SPI bus, or bit-bang the interface. You'll probably find someone else may have written a driver.

You may be lucky. See if you can read the chip number on the back of the display.

It ISN'T an LCD, its vacuum-fluorescent display, and it probably needs something like 90 odd volts to make it work.
