SOLVED Trying to rotate screen now blank orange screen
April 2019, Release Date: 2019-04-08 Kernel: 4.14 to /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart ):
And add the following line:
@xrandr --output HDMI-1 --rotate right
After trying to rotate mirror to portrait mode with Pi4 added above line and now boots to blank orange screen . how do i get back to the mirror as no keys work ( mouse does ) any help appreciated as beginner to the Pi
@borg137 no idea. did u enable ssh?
on pi4 u can rotate screen thru the preferences menu
Do not know about ssh, before I put the file in the auto start folder I did use the desktop preferences to rotate screen it just went blank orange rebooting it went back to normal ( I believe it does that goes to default on startup) . Thinking it may be a graphics driver problem but how do recover to get a display again ( how do I delete the file I added). can you put the SD card in a windows PC and do it from there? Any help would be appreciated as I had just got the mirror set up nice for me apart from portrait mode don’t want to lose my settings….
@borg137 don’t know on windows access, I only have Linux machines now
i don’t do the start up file stuff anymore… I use pm2 to auto launch whatever
Using parragon Linux software on PC ,Pi SD card plugged in deleted the rotate right file which I had created as per the magic mirror documentation. Now mirror back to normal and working. Will investigate why the rotate command on the desktop does not work .
