Rotation Problem - PiPhone.py Software

Tue Mar 08, 2016 1:08 am

Good evening. I chose one of the projects published in Adafruit's page named Piphone as my ''PAP'' project in school. Im getting a problem and i can't currently solve it. I followed all of your indications, step-by-step, as showed in this page: https://learn.adafruit.com/piphone-a-ra ... e/pi-setup
When i try to run the software Pihpone.py, the screen rotates horizontally, fully disabling me of seeing the software at all. How can i rotate the screen vertically in order to use this software?

hello,

I was having a similar issue with this until I did this in the /boot/config.txt

1.): do sudo nano /boot/config.txt to open up the boot script
2.): look for pitft in the script and change: rotation=90 to: rotation=0 (do not write lcd or display_rotate=1, this will only rotate an hdmi input)
3.) lower the resolution to the lowest possible resolution (I did 640 by 480)

this should launch the pitft in portrait mode now
