Display orientation problem
#1
Hi all,
we need to connect a Tinkerboard with a very large monitor for Kiosk use: fir this use we need a vertical monitor in a portrait mode.
The OS is:

tek@tekboard:~$ uname -a
Linux tekboard 4.4.71+ #1 SMP Thu Feb 22 18:23:31 CST 2018 armv7l GNU/Linux
tek@tekboard:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux 9.3 (stretch)
Release: 9.3
Codename: stretch

On other cases (with smaller monitor) we had not problem to rotate the desktop.
But in this case the desktop and the applications are always in landscape mode, then rotated for us.

I typed 'xrandr -o left' and the monitor goes off for some seconds, then turn on but again in landscape mode.
After a reset/reboot the display is again in landscape mode.

Is there any other way to set the portrait mode (and why I cannot set the mode)?

Thanks, regards

PS: if I keep the monitor off, turn on the board and THEN turn on the monitor the image is in portrait mode.

Hi,
I also tried with the newer OS image but nothing .. Sad
It worked only the reverse mode that showed the display in the opposite side, but always in landscape mode.

How can i rotate the display, please !!!!

Very simple. Use Armbian with K4.19.y

Nothing to do  Angry

I downloaded the desktop version: when I try to rotate left the display, it does not move from the original orientation - landscape.
Only the inverted rotation works - but again is landscape mode.

Is there any other OS for Tinker, better if not Debian-based - just to try ..

There are, but only from worse to much worse.

With 5.3.y it works for me. Rotation in all directions.

I start to think that there is a 'misunderstanding' with the display .. with other displays we have no problems .. but they are smaller than this one (75")

I tried now on my main 43" 4K monitor and it also works as expected. In case monitor is off the standard ... no ideas.
