Orange PI ONE and Desktop Pivot

Post by Lamerjack »

I successfully was able to change resolution to 1280x1024 with h3disp on My Orange Pi One
Now i need to pivot desktop rotating 90 degree...
I tried using LXDE or XFCE
but xrandr -o left give me BadMatch (invalid paramter attributes)
in XFCE panel thre is rotation opiton but if i click has no choices availables.
Is it possible to rotate monitor? If no, is not supported by OrangePi or Not suppoterd By dietPi?
Regards.
Enrico.

Hi,

Might be a hardware/driver limitation.

I found the following, same BadMatch issue as your getting, might be worth a go:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/86055/ro ... -clockwise

Code: Select all

nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
If the file is empty, try:

Code: Select all

Section "Device"
	Identifier      "FBDEV"
	Driver          "fbdev"
	Option          "fbdev" "/dev/fb0"
 	Option	"RandRRotation" "on"

	#Option          "SwapbuffersWait" "true"
EndSection

Thank You for you answer...
Unfortunately doens't work.
I tested also with another distro and with a raspberry pi1.
Same issue.
I noticed that RAspberry pi one has no opengl support (only on 2 and 3) and somewere in diet pi information i read that OrangePi One has no hardware accelleration so is not possible to use kodi...
This make me think that driver problem i will try on a Raspberry Pi2 if i found one or on ORangePI PC when i will receive and i will update.
Regards.
Enrico.
