Hi Twuelfing! I had the same issue and logged my workthrough on this thread: viewtopic.php?f=108&t=120793twuelfing wrote:I have read through this thread and those linked within and what i am reading is that a method to rotate the screen 90 or 270 degrees AND rotate the touch interface isn't documented here.
I understand that a portrait orientation isn't as efficient, however for my application it is required due to space restrictions.
Does anyone have any idea how to rotate both the screen and the touch registration 90 degrees?
thanks for your help!

and re-boot. This makes no difference. The GUI interface is still displayed in the default orientation. I did an update to the most recent Rasbian right after hooking up the display so I am running v8 (jessie).
Any insight on this would be appreciated.
Are you using a Pi4? That's slightly different.wolfhound89 wrote: ↑Fri Dec 13, 2019 3:18 pmI know that this is an older post and it was solved for the original poster. However, I am still having issues with my touchscreen and I thought it would be a good idea to post my question here.
What if the lcd_rotate=2 does not work? I have reviewed the config file line by line and cannot find any issues.
Is there somewhere else I should be looking?
