Thread: Rotate login screen

  1. #1

    Default Rotate login screen

    Hi
    I am using tumbleweed and the standard SDDM login screen with portrait monitors.
    I used to rotate the login screen by putting an xrandr command in the /etc/X11/kdm/Xstartup file.
    After the last update this no longer works.

    Why?

    How do I fix it?

    Thanks

    Why do you think that sddm would find it there?

    I hardly doubt that you ever used this on openSUSE though, because openSUSE's displaymanagers use /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup by default.
    That includes kdm, but also sddm, so try to put your xrandr command into that file.

    For sddm this is configurable in /etc/sddm.conf though, so if it still doesn't work look at that config file whether it contains a DisplayCommand=xxx option.
