I read that this does not work for the RPi4.

Perhaps @0raid knows how.
yes Rpi4 has a different driver....

please try in shell the following commands and let me know if it works!

DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output HDMI-1 --rotate normal
DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output HDMI-1 --rotate left
DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output HDMI-1 --rotate right
DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output HDMI-1 --rotate inverted

may you need first to run the command: sudo bash (to get root access)
I get the following error:

Code: Select all

pi@movienow:~$ sudo bash
root@movienow:/home/pi# DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output HDMI-1 --rotate right
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
warning: output HDMI-1 not found; ignoring

Adding dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d to the config.txt line allows me to execute the prior command but it results in a blank/black screen.

if you add the dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d in your config.txt you dont need to execute any command , normaly if i am not wrong :) you can NOW rotate the screen in the config.txt file change the following flag

display_rotate=0 Normal
display_rotate=1 90 degrees
display_rotate=2 180 degrees
display_rotate=3 270 degrees

please report back! :)

Ok, seeing some progress! The orientation is correct, but the picture looks stretched horizontally.
