Re: Rotate display 90º?

I woke up this morning to see about adding the code suggested above. When i booted up the project the touch screen worked!

thanks for your help everyone. I think I may have just needed to reboot a few extra times for good luck.

Re: Rotate display 90º?

So i should add the following text to the end of the screenflip.sh file?
echo "sript runned" > /home/pi/test.txt

That is easy enough, but what does this part of it do? > /home/pi/test.txt

Re: Rotate display 90º?

I understand how to rotate the display and touch 180 degrees. I have checked everything 3 times and here is where i am at. the screen is rotated 270 degrees by using display_rotate=3 in the config.txt file located in \boot I have added to /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart the following line as th...

Re: Rotate display 90º?

Is it possible your rotating your display 180 degrees? That seems to be relatively easy to accomplish compared to the 270 degree rotation i need. Perhaps this explains the differences we are seeing as we are not trying to do the same thing. In my hands I ended up doing added "display_rotate=2" to /b...

Re: Rotate display 90º?

thanks for the info.
I noticed that if i include the two dashes when i do the command manually it does not work. The commands only seem to work if i omit those.
any reason that would be the case?

Re: Rotate display 90º?

Forgive my ignorance here, I have just been following the directions provided here and dont really understand what all of it is doing or why it does it, so I am going to ask. What do the two hyphens or minus signs before the set-prop part of the command? DISPLAY=:0 xinput -- set-prop 'FT5406 memory ...

Re: Rotate display 90º?

i got everything to work, except the part where adding the lines to rc.local would cause the changes to be present at boot. When i typed them in manually it worked, when i added the lines and saved the file out and reboot the touch screen is still backward as if nothing was done. I added the lines d...

Re: Rotate display 90º?

I was referred to this thread while attempting to get my raspberry pi with the 7 inch official touch screen to rotate the display AND touch screen 90 or 270 degrees. I am very inexperienced with raspberry pi, Linux, etc. and could use some help. I followed the directions until I ran the command in t...

Re: Rotate the touchscreen display? [SOLVED]

I have read through this thread and those linked within and what i am reading is that a method to rotate the screen 90 or 270 degrees AND rotate the touch interface isn't documented here. I understand that a portrait orientation isn't as efficient, however for my application it is required due to sp...
