So I only wasted time for fight with this.
I guess I'm not sure what you're trying to do with the driver?

So nothing shows up when you type xrandr in the terminal? I looked and seen that lxrandr is in the tiny core repository, so maybe if you installed that it would automatically install the xrandr dependency.

Let us know.

So that basically eliminates xrandr on tiny core, so close and yet so far Have you given slitaz and puppy a try yet? I also noticed this computer used to have debian installed at one time, could you possibly reinstall?

Slitaz - I tried but have some problem with run it and I did not try to fight it
Puppy - start, works but this computer is too slow for it (system hangs very much and you need a lot of patience waiting for the application to run)

Yes on this computer was before installed some debian 6 but I don't know who installed it and what version of debian was installed. Moreover I formatted disk so I think aesier will be install something new than trying back to debian.

i think this is an interesting option - who knows, maybe debian used to have support for this device?
i'm sure old install images can be found.
if you don't connect that device to the internet, that is. because that would be insecure.

I curious why the screen needs to be rotated? The only time I've ever messed with screen rotation was as a prank.... they were not amused

I'll also echo what some of the earlier members said. Have you tried antix? you can get different versions, if you have internet on the box, you could use the "net" version, you can select what you want to install. The other versions are core, base and full. This distro is debian based.

Keep us updated

The screen in case is installed in such a way that if you do not turn the screen it will be displayed from left to right.

It is very similar to this http://projekty.autokreacje.pl/revot...d/22be94c4.jpg or this http://kioski.river.pl/uploads/kiosk..._wokanda19.png

Everything is in this case.

About AntiX net version I found info that it require 700 MB disk space. I have only 500 MB disk.

Ok makes sense now. Have you tried debian yet? they also have the net install. The minimum for a standard install is 800mb however you can cut that down quite a bit by installing only what you need. Considering debian used to run on there it should still run on there

If I'm thinking right rotate might not be what you're looking for. I'm guessing you need something more like 'mirror' but all that aside. it is possible to flip a webpage from the browser itself try this https://youtube.com/watch?v=LF4OhMQm1XA

I just tried it on otter and it works great for rotate.

Let me know if it works for you...

if you follow the directions in the link and you replace rotate(-90deg); with scaleX(-1); it reverses the webpage instead of just rotating it.

The only problem I see is how to run that command at startup.

So were you able to flip the webpage as needed with that command?

Let us know if you find a way to set the script to auto-flip the page on start-up, this could be useful for others as well.
