Bug Description

When X is instructed to rotate the display, there is screen corruption inbetween each rotation. This can easily be reproduced by installing Checkbox and running /usr/share/checkbox/scripts/rotation_test

When I run /usr/share/checkbox/scripts/rotation_test
I've got this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/checkbox/scripts/rotation_test", line 31, in <module>
    from checkbox.contrib import xrandr
ImportError: No module named checkbox.contrib

And nothing happens

It's a little odd that /usr/share/checkbox/scripts/ can exist but not the checkbox.contrib.xrandr module. Can you confirm a few things?

1.) dpk -s checkbox
2.) ls /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/checkbox/contrib/

What if it is simply run with xrotate?

Yes (I believe..), i have checkbox.contrib.xrandr

When I run ls /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/checkbox/contrib/
I have __pycache__

I did rotation with the display settings, I have screen corruption just with normal and 180 degrees rotation (so in the portrait screen) other it's fine

Please try running /usr/bin/xrotate. At this point, any other test should be considered incomplete

Eric Zig (zuric) wrote :

Yes /usr/bin/xrotate result also a screen corruption

Yep, this is presumably a tegra bug. Should be escalated to nvidia.
