7" Touchscreen

Wed Jan 03, 2018 6:54 pm

I'm really new to the raspberry Pi and have purchased an official touchscreen and case but the display is upside down. Although I've read the blogs I cannot work out how to actually add required new command to the config sys txt. Is there a basic step by step/idiots guide on how to do this?

Regards,

Daniel

Alternative method...turn the screen "upside down" (as compared to the way you have it now).
