Screen rotation
#1
Has anyone managed to get screen rotation working? It seems to natively work with Mobian but for Arch (Phosh) whenever I rotate the phone it remains stuck in portrait orientation. Is there a script needed to force landscape mode?

I run Arch with Phosh and I've never had an issue with screen orientation. A tad sluggish but it's never gotten stuck.

there should be a tile in the top pull down options of phosh that will let you change display orientation between portrait, landscape, and automatic.

What about the lockscreen?  My Arch-Phosh lockscreen seems to be stuck in portrait whatever I do.  Would be nice to have this in landscape when using the keyboard case.

I've tried adding `rotate=90` and `rotate=180` to `phoc.ini` but this did not help.

Also tried setting the tile (from pull-down) to landscape. Whilst this effects the desktop environment, the lockscreen remains in portrait.

Is screen rotation still working for everyone?

Mine stopped working around the time iio-sensors-proxy got updated to 3.3-1. This could be coincidental however, as iio-sensor-proxy-git 3.4.r0.cd6d5e6-1 doesn't work either. If it is due to iio-sensors-proxy, does anyone have an older copy? I had nothing in the pkg cache as it was a new install and I was new to the PP.

Cheers.

Edit: Seems an issue is logged but with no resolution as yet.
