#10567 closed defect (fixed)

olpc-rotate rotates 'Screen', should rotate ouput

When calling xrandr -o [orientation] we are actually rotating the "global screen". This exposes various xorg/xrandr bugs. As we found in #10453, the DPI settings are completely wrong for left and right orientations.

The fix is to use xrandr --output [output] --rotate [orientation].

This is addressed in recent olpc-kbdshim versions.

this is fixed in olpc-kbdshim-16.

jnettlet says on IRC:

that helps to fix the DPI not recalculating when we rotate the screen.  It helped the problem in F11 in F14 it causes the DPI bug to be completely eliminated
