Rotating X with xrandr
Although I've used a tiny bit of Linux here and there, this is the first time I've used it for more than a few days. The one thing that bugs me the most: I can't rotate my display. I use a program called Pivot Pro in Windows that can rotate your display... so you turn your monitor on its side - it's great for web browsing, and I play a lot of vertical games in MAME, so I don't have to rotate my monitor back and forth when swtiching between MAME and everything else.
From what I understand, the xrandr command is supposed to do the trick (in XFree86 4.3.0, anyway, which is what I have). But here's what happenes when I try it:
xrandr -o left
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 156 (RANDR)
Minor opcode of failed request: 2 (RRSetScreenConfig)
Serial number of failed request: 12
Current serial number in output stream: 12
Does this just mean that my video driver doesn't support this? It's an integrated Intel810 by the way.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Have you, by any chance, figured this out?
I wish! :rolleyes: Especially now that I got my joystick working, this is the only thing I miss from Windows.
I wonder whether a moderator could move this question to the hardware forum. Maybe we'd have better luck there.
