I’m struggling to find a way to rotate a chromium kiosk instance with Autostart.

I’ve found various discussions for different hardware but I’ve not not been able to do it properly with dietpi with a pi zero 2w?

I’m getting close to using a default raspbian image and trying with that to test but as always time is short!

Thus far I’ve tried hdmi rotate, tried flipping the resolution settings around in chromium too. The bootup sequence rotates without issue, its just chromium frustratingly. Monitor is a generic HP 1080p device.

what kind of screen you have and how does it connect. Somehow you missed to fill the troubleshooting template and to share more information on your system.

DOH! Sorry I had that in the clipboard and forgot to paste it in :man_facepalming:
