Newbie Asus Transformer Mini T102 HA

Hello there

Newbie here! I installed Bodhi 5.0 yesterday and had a couple niggles sorted out and managed this myself, I have a few niggles left to be ironed out with your guys help.

When I boot up, the screen orientation is in portrait mode and I use ARandR (I think that's what its called) but I must do this every single time I boot up.

The second problem is that when I use the screen brightness module, I use the slider and it does nothing.

Third is a little funny, not sure if its software related or hardware related but the temperature module reads at 900C+ I'm sure that my laptop isn't running at this temperature as I still
Have my legs and hands and the laptop itself hasn't melted yet lol.

Any input would be very much appreciated.

I cant help with brightness or the (silly) temperature, but

Can you, when in portrait mode, open a terminal and enter

Note the name of the "connected primary" and use it instead of LVDS1 in what follows.

Again in the terminal enter

xrandr --output LVDS1 --rotate right
- no return after it

If, and only if, that works it can be added into the hidden file in your home directory; (It may need to be rotate left)


The line quoted above can be put into the (probably empty) file by editing the file with epad and saving it.

This will then be run at every boot.

If you also go to
settings panel
apps tab
personal application launchers

You can create a launcher (which will appear in applications - other) with a Name such as "rotate right" and the application line containing just

xrandr --output LVDS1 --rotate right
without a return. Other fields can be blank. OK and close.

Then you can chose to implement the rotation if you wish by clicking on the app launcher you created. (You might want another to rotate normal as well to put the screen back?)

xrandr --output LVDS1 --rotate normal

I have not tested this because I dont have your hardware..but it works on my old Asus netbook

I use Ubuntu 18.04 (64bit) on an Asus Transformer Mini 102HA - I upgraded the kernel to 4.19 and everything seems to be good - brightness slider works and makes a difference to battery life. It boots up portrait and autorotates to landscape.

With stock 18.04, it did not autorotate, but the problem with my simple use of xrandr was that it did not autorotate any more.

I also have a 900C which is amazingly cool to touch and a known bug where touching the launch icons starts 2 instances - mouse works fine - I don't know if the keyboard dock works as my started to malfunction under Windows :-(

While Ubuntu is working well, I was just looking at Bodhi as a possible minimalist - I would be interested if an upgraded kernel was possible / works for the Bodhi/102HA
