(Solved) Changing display orientation
« on: January 23, 2011, 03:32:42 pm »
Hello to all,

at the moment I am trying to change the orientation of the display on one of my MD's (Foxconn netbox nT330i + 19" 1440*900). This because the display will hang up side down in the end.

Although I am able to change the orientation when I am in the desktop (terminal > xrandr -o inverted) and LMCE interface flips as well, I want it to start it up like that without having to go to the desktop.

I am wondering where I should place the script or change one, because all of the ways I found with google are based on starting an Xsession.... and they do not work.

TIA

Han

Can't xorg.conf be modified to work as you would like it to work?

I did change xorg.conf with the statement Option "Rotate" "Inverted" which indeed flipped over the display. At the time the LMCE system is booting you see the messages up side down, but in the end I was stuck with just the cursor, which was at leastupside down. No interface at all, and no error messages I could find.

We'll it took a bit of time but there it is, one up side down display of LMCE.

I've editted /etc.pluto/PostStart.sh from:

Code: [Select]
/bin/bash
nvidia-settings -a "SyncToVBlank=1"
nvidia-settings -a "XVideoTextureSyncToVBlank=1"
nvidia-settings -a "XVideoBlitterSyncToVBlank=1"

to
Code: [Select]
/bin/bash
nvidia-settings -a "SyncToVBlank=1"
nvidia-settings -a "XVideoTextureSyncToVBlank=1"
nvidia-settings -a "XVideoBlitterSyncToVBlank=1"
xrandr -o inverted

so now I can hang my monitor from the ceiling without having to buy a fancy vesa mount as I have drilled two holes in the stand  ;D

Good work, you should post a pic when you have it up I would like to see that.

I was tempted to put an older laptop upside down under the cabinets in the kitchen so I could fold it up out of the way but wondered about it being upside down

That is a great suggestion for running an orbiter in the kitchen. Why didn't I think of that?  ;D
