Flipping Image 180 degrees

Wed Nov 01, 2017 4:15 pm

I have a pi3, with an official 7" TouchScreen, I need to rotate the screen 180 degrees.
I have tried the lcd_rotate=2 but that only changes my touch input.
I am currently running FullpageOS image as an OS.

Get a copy of Raspbian Stretch and test with that.

Resolved:
SSH to the Pi:
run sudo raspi-config
Select advanced options
Select GL driver
Select legacy
Reboot
SSH back to the Pi
sudo nano /boot/config.txt
at the end of the file, enter lcd_rotate=2
Reboot

Ah, that dreaded pre-alpha testing (aka broken) display driver breaks things again.
