Rotate screen 90° by button GPIO

Thu Mar 29, 2018 1:31 pm

Hi guys

For my new project (vertical mini-cab based on ol ICADE) im looking for a easy but suitable way to switch from vertical to horizontal the monitor screen.

I need this because my project works with a vertical screen (in the ICADE CONFIG) and stand alone like control panel to be connected in a regular widescreen tv.

The smart and amazing way would be buy a LCD mini screen who allow this hardware "flip" feature, but the one i have bought do not have it, and leave the software orientation HORIZONTAL.

So im looking for a script to connect raspberry by button like this (i cosider it a good option): ...

thank you for any help :roll:

As can be clearly seen in that video a reboot is required to change orientation, a couple of scripts can do the same job, no switch required.
