EeeRotate makes Eee PC screen rotation easier

EeeRotate

Filed squarely in the “because you can” category of netbook software is a little Windows utility called EeeRotate that can rotate your Eee PC screen. Sure, you could use the Intel Driver application to rotate your screen by 90, 180, or 270 degrees. But there’s one problem with the Intel software: it doesn’t change the orientation of your touchpad. EeeRotate does.

The program also lets you rotate your screen with a handful of keyboard shortcuts. Ctrl+Alt+Right will rotate your screen by 90 degrees. Ctrl+Alt+Down will give you a 180 degree rotation (turning the screen upside down), and Ctrl+Alt+Left rotates your screen by 270 degrees.

When you want to go back to normal, you just hit Ctrl+Alt+Up.

    Has this been updated? I was reading about this recently and most reports said it didn't function correctly on current laptops. However, it is based on SakasaMouse and the built-in features of the Intel graphics drivers. There's some excellent discussion about linking this to the two hot buttons above the keyboard:

    Haven't gotten around to blogging the details of this yet, sadly.

    Equivalent code exists for the linux version of the EEE (work for most other flavors as well)

    in addition not only does FBReader support left rotation in Linux but also Document Viewer (Evince) and Comix (for CBR/CBZ files).

    I've just installed this on my Samsung NC10 running Windows Vista, and it works perfectly. It's a very small installation file, and I rather like it. :)

    Well, this is one way to cut down on monotonous vertical scrolling and create a need for a touch-screen all at once :)

    Drool. Now if only such a utility existed for the HP 2133. Also, I agree with DougC3. What this mostly makes me do is wish for a touchscreen.
