Portrait Mode on TC 4.x
« on: February 02, 2012, 08:50:20 AM »
Hi everyone,

I have been fiddling with TC linux for a few days and its been working very nicely.
Got a ATOM D425 with an 8.9inch VGA screen 800X600.
Everything is running flawlessly, even managed to install intel driver extension and use in xorg.

Already managed to put the screen in portrait mode with randr and works nice but every time i reboot needs new command.

Even found out with xorg.conf to do it using Option "Rotate" "left", but the portrait get bugged....
its like the card complied with the rotation making the screen portrayed but physically what happened is just the screen getting extended to bottom going outside the screen.

its like the screen rotated at driver level but forgot to tell screen to rotate.

Any chance to help me out here?

Create a /home/tc/.X.d/rotate.sh file that contains the command you need to enter.
It will be run after X is started.

Awesome!

Now it works, i had tried in bootlocal.sh but its probably executing before xserver.

Thank you for your time answering!

I have been in lubuntu ( a lot more user friendly), puppy linux (an awesome distribution for old machines) but tiny core? surpasses them all.
Fast, easy to assemble, and small!

Keep going
