yes but this feature would require manual tweaking of the autostart file:

a) please grab 'xrandr' utility from 32bit porteus-2.x or slackware-14.0 and place in /porteus/rootcopy/bin directory (this utility will be added by default to kiosk 2.0.5)
b) please unsquash /porteus/base/003-settings.xzm and add following command to squashfs-root/etc/xdg/openbox/autostart

Code: Select all

xrandr -o left &
this command should be placed before:

Code: Select all

# Set wallpaper for kiosk:
hsetroot -fill /usr/share/wallpapers/default.jpg &
so your wallpaper will look correctly.
c) squash 003-settings.xzm back and create new ISO
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
