hell xizel,

this feature (screen rotation) will be available in next porteus kiosk version. for now i can offer you a custom build which do the same.
please contact me through builds@porteus-kiosk.org and i'll send you an ISO created from the config provided.
please also tell me if you want to rotate screen on the left or on the right.

btw: it's not a good idea to post your configs publicly so i have removed it from this thread.

thanks

@v-11
3.1.3 is only a bugfix release. new features are planned for kiosk 3.2 in December.
there are 6 new functions (if i remember correctly) added to the wizard and screen rotation is one of them.

I'm sorry, already found a way to do this through xzm customization (using forum search, ofc.)

unsquash /porteus/base/003-settings.xzm and add following command to squashfs-root/etc/xdg/openbox/autostart

xrandr -o left &

this command should be placed before:

Code: Select all
# Set wallpaper for kiosk:
hsetroot -fill /usr/share/wallpapers/default.jpg &
