I was searching for configuration settings for rotating the new Raspberry Pi 7" touchscreen display.
I have a 3D printed stand that does nicely (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:995394
) for holding the display with attached RPi, but require the cables that power and connect the Pi+display to be at the top of the display in the stand.
Somewhere along the way on installing and configuring a fresh Raspbian image, updating the packages and doing an rpi-update
, the Touchscreen display rotated 180° (upside down).
I checked /boot/overlays/README
and while there are many displays in there with a rotate command, I couldn’t find the new 7” touchscreen display…
I also tried display_rotate=2
. It works to rotate the display, but then the touchscreen points are not correct-- the input events are reflected to where they would be if the display were still upside down.
Thanks for any help or pointers!
