    No i never even got the screen to rotate at all. Im not sure to be honest i followed a pretty well made tutorial online. Ibtryed using pm2 or whatever bit i couldnt make the mm.sh a file it could execute i guess ehat im wondering is how to get rolling on this.

    What i have so far:

    The pi assembled

    Rasbian desktop installed and functiong

    Downloaded magic mirror a few times and deleted the others and so on

    It comes on in landscape mode i can see the basic set up with the time greeting and news.

    What i wouldnlike to have is:

    The pi boot diectly to MM
    MM to be in portait mode

    And although i know its in tutorials and walkthroughs id like to:

    Change the time to 12 hr
    Add a weather app
    Maybe some custom greeting?
    Make sure i can set the pi to not turn off wifi
    Make sure theres no screen savers or whatever

    All the good stuff to have it function as it should you know.

    If you could help me as to where things go whether it be in terminal, a folder, a file. Anything such as that.

    I just built a retro pi.

    I overclocked it
    Transfered all the roms over network
    Installed kodi
    Put the add ons in kodi
    And customized the displays in roms to run them all real smooth so im no newby to this stuff, also no expert either tho ill admit. Just need a different approach or point me in the right direction.

    Thank you!



  • @danwitz65 ok, lets fix it step by step:

    1. Rotate the screen (works for all normal displays, not for pi special and touchscreens)

    Open a terminal and login to your pi

    sudo nano /boot/config.txt
    move all the way down to the end of the file
    add the line: display_rotate=3
    Press ctrl + o to save and ctrl + x to exit the file

    Now do a reboot and you should have a screen tilted by the number of your desire:

    0 = 0 degrees (the default value)
    1 = 90 degrees
    2 = 180 degrees
    3 = 270 degrees

    That’s it! Quick and easy.
