Cant Rotate Display Geforce 6600 GT


Hello,

I want to rotate my x-display but I cant.

In the KDE COntrol Center-Display there is an option rotate. But alle Options are greyed out.

I use 6.8.2-10 and xrandr is version 1.1
I have an Geforce 6600 GT and I am running ubuntu.

When I try to rotate the display manually i get this:


Code:
sudo xrandr --verbose -o inverted 

  SZ:    Pixels          Physical       Refresh 
 *0   1280 x 1024   ( 342mm x 271mm )  *60 
  1   1024 x 768    ( 342mm x 271mm )   60 
  2    800 x 600    ( 342mm x 271mm )   60 
  3   1280 x 960    ( 342mm x 271mm )   60

I hope you can help me. What is wrong with my setup?

here is my xorg.conf

Go to xorg.conf (etc/X11/xorg.conf),
add this line under section device:

Option "Rotate" "CCW"

Save.
Press Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to restart xserver and login.

kind regards
Anton vd Haterd

Thumbs up

I had found the xorg.conf trick
Option "Rotate" "CCW"
by myself. The display is rotated correctly, sleak! But now I get very weird mouse behaviour. The mouse pointer acts as if the display was not rotated (physically moving up moves the pointer right), but the mouse click is not associated with the pointer, and I havenīt figured out what it follows (clicking does produce actions, but where is not clear).
I could provide more info if needed.

Anyone seen this type of problems before?

I am using Suse 10.1 64 bits with KDE 3.5.4 instead of Fedora Core 5.
Maybe you could try another mouse?

Pfuuuuuuuuuuiiiiiiiii

I got it working... The mouse is attached to its pointer, and the screen is rotated 90 degrees. The trick is to use 'SWCursor', in xorg.conf (see below). But this mqkes the refresh very slow AND obvious. So this is not a satisfactory solution yet!

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "i810"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "Intel Corporation 945G Integrated Graphics Controller"
Option "Rotate" "CCW"
Option "SWCursor" "On"
EndSection

The following information was provided by a very knowledgeable friend (I'm not that good!)

Have a look at
http://webcvs.freedesktop.org/xorg/d....5&view=markup

Bump version to 1.5.0.0
Add Intel 945GM support
Add RandR rotation support (full 3D acceleration, HWcursor & Xvideo
rotated too)
Remove shadow framebuffer rotation code
Add a new LinearAlloc option to allow more offscreen memory to be allocated
for XVideo applications. This allows HDTV movies to be played via Xvideo.

So the i810 driver provide support for rotation from version 1.5.
But we can see from
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...s/Fedora/RPMS/
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...3-3.1.i386.rpm
that the driver in FC5 is 1.4.1.3.

So, the solutions are:

1) Upgrade to FC6, where driver version is 1.6.5
2) Recompile from sources
ftp://ftp.x.org/pub/X11R7.1/src/driv...1-1.6.0.tar.gz
