Rotate the AstroBox Touch Display


#1

Hello,

I’m coming to ask you for help, I wish I could return to 180 degrees my display of astroprint touch.

I have a raspberry with an official 7 "screen.

Good day to you all.

Please read the guide here. Look for SCREEN_ROTATE step 6


#3

Thank you for your answer, except that I already made a first boot of astrobox, so basically how to configure after the first boot ?


#4

You can still do this. Follow this instructions:

  1. Temporary enable SSH in your device.

  2. Edit/replace the astroprint-config.conf file. Make sure to only change the ‘n’ to a ‘y’ or other things might stop working.

  3. Run the following commands in the command line:

    sudo /etc/astrobox/initial-scripts/10-configure-screen
    sudo reboot

Hello, thank you for your answer. I tried to do as you explained but nothing works.

The SSH is ok, I modify the config file but the screen is still not rotate.


#6

Ok, it’s possible then that rotation of that screen is not supported. What is the output of the first command?


#7

it’s written :

changing screen driver to hdmi (rotate:n)…
Done! screen driver changed


#8

It appears that we don’t currently support rotation on hdmi screens. We will work on that in future releases.
