10.4: How to rotate OS X's display
Authored by: Anonymous on May 15, '05 04:02:19AM

Apple decided to hide rorate option on some models despite they have capabilities to rotate it. The way to unleash rotating (provided hardware supports the trick) is:

1. Run System Preferences (the point is, it must be just-run, so quit it and reopen if you have it already opened)
2. Alt-click at Displays
3. Select your rotatation :)

If you want to revert to previous rotation, or to standard - close System Preferences and go to #1

10.4: How to rotate OS X's display
Authored by: jetcowbob on May 18, '05 02:51:57AM

Hrm... not sure what is wrong.... I do have the 10.4.1 update, but this trick, holding down alt/opt when clicking displays (yes, being the first thing i do after opening system preferences from the lil apple drop down menu)

Ive got one of the newer 1.5GHz 12" powerbooks. Id really like to figure out how to flip the display with an apple script, so that i can use the sudden motion sensor to flip the display automagically if i tilt it sideways to read it like a book. I think you can see where this is going. that mouse button is in the perfect spot for 'flipping pages' in an ebook.
