Tinker: not able to rotate my display


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I downloaded the Armbian Buster OS desktop version.

I need to run it with a vertical display - portrait mode.

The OS starts correctly and I see the desktop in landscape mode but when I try to rotate left the display, it does not rotate and return to landscape mode.

The display is a large NBT monitor 1920x1080 that I need to rotate to 1080x1920.

 

Any idea?

Regards

I opened the Xorg log and I noted that on the first list of available resolution is present the frequency values:

 

[   158.884] (--) modeset(0): HDMI max TMDS frequency 600000KHz
[   158.884] (II) modeset(0): Printing probed modes for output HDMI-1
[   158.884] (II) modeset(0): Modeline "1920x1080"x60.0  148.50  1920 2008 2052 2200  1080 1084 1089 1125 +hsync +vsync (67.5 kHz eP)
[   158.884] (II) modeset(0): Modeline "1920x1080"x60.0  148.50  1920 2008 2052 2200  1080 1084 1089 1125 +hsync +vsync (67.5 kHz e)

)

whilst in the next lists the frequencies are zero-ed:

[   160.568] (II) modeset(0): EDID vendor "NBT", prod id 0
[   160.568] (II) modeset(0): Using EDID range info for horizontal sync

[   160.568] (II) modeset(0): Modeline "1366x768"x0.0   85.50  1366 1436 1579 1792  768 771 774 798 +hsync +vsync (47.7 kHz e)
[   160.568] (II) modeset(0): Modeline "1920x1080i"x0.0   74.25  1920 2448 2492 2640  1080 1084 1094 1125 interlace +hsync +vsync (28.1 kHz e)
[   160.568] (II) modeset(0): Modeline "1920x1080"x0.0  148.50  1920 2448 2492 2640  1080 1084 1089 1125 +hsync +vsync (56.2 kHz e)

Is it meaningful?

I'm comparing two xorg log:

 

Display NTB 75":

[   491.878] (II) modeset(0): Allocate new frame buffer 1080x1920 stride
[   492.474] (II) modeset(0): Allocate new frame buffer 320x200 stride
[   492.542] (II) modeset(0): EDID vendor "NBT", prod id 0
[   492.542] (II) modeset(0): Using hsync ranges from config file
[   492.542] (II) modeset(0): Using vrefresh ranges from config file
[   492.542] (II) modeset(0): Printing DDC gathered Modelines:
[   492.542] (II) modeset(0): Modeline "1920x1080"x0.0  148.50  1920 2008 2052 2200  1080 1084 1089 1125 +hsync +vsync (67.5 kHz eP)
[   492.542] (II) modeset(0): Modeline "1366x768"x0.0   85.50  1366 1436 1579 1792  768 771 774 798 +hsync +vsync (47.7 kHz e)

No rotation,  '320x200' ?? Which config file ?

 

Display TVL :

[    16.667] (II) modeset(0): Allocate new frame buffer 1080x1920 stride
[    19.814] (II) modeset(0): EDID vendor "TVL", prod id 6432

[    19.814] (II) modeset(0): Modeline "1440x480i"x0.0   27.00  1440 1478 1602 1716  480 488 494 525 interlace -hsync -vsync (15.7 kHz e)

Rotation ok and uses EDID info..

With your image in the Xorg log I see:

[    47.733] (II) modeset(0): Allocate new frame buffer 1080x1920 stride
[    48.253] (II) modeset(0): Allocate new frame buffer 320x200 stride
[    48.314] (II) modeset(0): EDID vendor "NBT", prod id 0

..
[    48.397] (II) modeset(0): Modeline "1680x1050"x0.0  119.00  1680 1728 1760 1840  1050 1053 1059 1080 +hsync -vsync (64.7 kHz e)
[    48.398] (--) modeset(0): HDMI max TMDS frequency 600000KHz
[    48.426] (II) modeset(0): Allocate new frame buffer 1920x1080 stride
[    48.557] (II) modeset(0): EDID vendor "NBT", prod id 0
[    48.557] (II) modeset(0): Using hsync ranges from config file
[    48.557] (II) modeset(0): Using vrefresh ranges from config file
[    48.557] (II) modeset(0): Printing DDC gathered Modelines:
[    48.557] (II) modeset(0): Modeline "1920x1080"x0.0  148.50  1920 2008 2052 2200  1080 1084 1089 1125 +hsync +vsync (67.5 kHz eP)
..
[    48.558] (II) modeset(0): Modeline "1680x1050"x0.0  119.00  1680 1728 1760 1840  1050 1053 1059 1080 +hsync -vsync (64.7 kHz e)
[    48.558] (--) modeset(0): HDMI max TMDS frequency 600000KHz
[    97.626] (II) modeset(0): Allocate new frame buffer 1280x720 stride
[    97.961] (II) modeset(0): Allocate new frame buffer 320x200 stride
[    98.176] (II) modeset(0): EDID vendor "NBT", prod id 0

So there is a quickly sequence of changes 1080x1920 (required) --> 320x200 --> 1920x1080

 

Why??
