Followed wiki, but the screen does not rotate



  • Hello, I installed the latest version of MM.

    My problem, i cannot rotate my screen. I followed the wiki manual von MichMich.

    I added the following two lines to /boot/config.txt

    #Enable the Open GL driver to decrease Electron's CPU usage
    dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d
    

    and I added the following line to ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart

    @xrandr --output HDMI-1 --rotate right
    

    But the screen does not rotate.

    Could it be a problem, that there is a Monitor/USB Switch between the raspberry and the monitor?

    I would be very grateful if someone could help me.

    Thank you in advance.

    Lars

    Try it without the Monitor/USB Switch. If it works, then it’s the switch. If it doesn’t, something else is amiss.



  • I tried it without the switch. But unfortunately it still doesn´t work.



  • With the risk of sounding like the helpdesk.“did you reboot between attemps”

    And to be sure, you are using the hdmi port?



  • My Monitor has a DVI Interface, so I am using an hdmi dvi adapter. Could it be that? What could I do to rotate with DVI?



  • Its about using the hdmi output of the pi. And it looks you’re doing that. But you can try hooking up the pi to another monitor, e.g. a tv to rule it out?
