Re: Display : rotation

Do you want to rotate your Monitor by 90°?

Please type xrandr in your nearest terminal and post the results.

Re: Display : rotation

I've found this:

http://wiki.debian.org/XStrikeForce/HowToRandR12


« The RandR 1.2 extension first appeared in Xserver 1.3 (i.e DebianTesting, since 2007-08-21). It provides automatic discovery of modes (resolutions, refresh rates, ...) together with the ability to configure outputs dynamically (resize, rotate, move, ...).

As of today, the following drivers/boards support RandR 1.2:

    * the Intel driver on all boards (since 1.9.91),
    * the NV driver on G80 and higher boards (since 2.0.95),
    * the ATI driver on r200/r300/r400/r500/r600 boards (since 6.7.191) where RandR 1.2 replaces MergedFB,
    * the MGA driver on all boards (since 1.9.99)
    * the RadeonHD driver on r500/r600 boards (since 1.1)

Other drivers still use the old/hard/non-standard way to configure modes. »

I don't know about « old/hard/non-standard way to configure modes. »
