Rotate Screen Manually?

Hi, my auto-rotation stopped working on my Pinephone running Phosh, and I can’t find a way in the settings or anywhere else to rotate between portrait mode and landscape mode manually. Any insight?

have you tried holding the rotate screen symbol in the top status bar. After holding it fo a while and on release it switches from auto to manual, each click afterwards would manually switch between portrait and landscape.


Amazing. Works like a charm.

Any way to make manual switching the default after reboot? It seems to always reset to automatic rotate after I turn off the phone.

i looked for a dconf setting, no cigar- maybe in terminal:

sudo systemctl disable “whatever the sensor daemon is called for rotation” maybe someone can help out there?
