#14510 assigned enhancement
Screen rotation support
|Reported by:||cb88||Owned by:||nobody|

I have a z-8700 handheld that uses a tablet screen which is rotated 90 degrees... *awkward*!
In any case it would be nice if there were a way to rotate the screen so it is usable.
It's a GPD Win I'll attach photos and listdev and listusb output and of course I cant attach a syslog if needed. It currently uses the Vesa driver but it really ought to work with intel_extreme

I have One Mix 2s from One-netbook. This also makes the screen horizontal. The graphics chip is Intel 615.

This can and should definitely be implemtented within app_server; the drivers don't have to know.

I have an ASUS tablet 2 in 1 that when Haiku is booted on it starts in portrait mode, so using it as a laptop renders the display (landscape mode) rotated 90 degrees ccw.
Having a Screen Preferences setting to rotate the display (90 degrees cw, ccw, or 180 degrees) would be nice in order to use it as a laptop, or as a digital painting device, as also has touchscreen and pen input.

Please do not "spam" the comment section for votes. There are voting buttons at the top right of Trac.
If a lot of discussion happens in the comments it becomes very hard for us to keep track of the useful information. Thanks :)

Whoever will be looking at this in the future, it'd seem that it is first necessary to detect what the current screen orientation actually is, by something like:
let raw_rotation_state =
at least to start with...

@Pulkomandy, removed the "vote" thing. Didn't know before about the voting mechanics on trac. Note taken.
I had forgotten about this ticket when I created this new one https://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/17043
At that ticket I added listdev, listusb and screenshot. Added the syslog at https://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/17042.
