Hello all,

not having used the portrait mode for a while (Borzoi, pdaxii13 with openbox and ROX), I noticed that the screen is no longer rotated. I'm pretty sure it worked before, but I might have changed something I'd better had not done.

Calling "rotate.sh -force" should always rotate the screen, no matter what position is is, right? Well, it flickers a bit but that's it. The only peculiarity I found is when calling chkhinge. I get:

chkhinge: Case open landscape (so far, so good)
Gdk-WARNING **; locale not supported by Xlib
Gdk-WARNING **; cannot set locale modifiers

What does locale have to do with rotating the screen? And if it really does, might I just be missing a certain package?

Thanks in Advance!

can you rotate with "xrandr -o X" where X is 0 - 3?

Sometimes Xfree gets confused though so quitting and restarting X fixes it.

No, that does nothing. Running it with "--verbose" it claims it is setting the rotation, but doesn't.

I already did a reboot, but that did not help either.

Nope. However, I really did not hope for it as it is basically the same as 0-3.

Is there any other way I can troubleshoot this? xrandr duly reports that is has set the rotation, but does nothing.

I'm pretty sure it's not a problem of the X system but of the window manager. When I alternatively start up xfce4, it works. It doesn't in openbox.
