Topic: Script to autorotate the screen based on accelerometer

I have written a small shell script that, when run polling in the background, will autorotate the novena screen based on accelerometer data, just like a tablet.

Script is at https://gist.github.com/singpolyma/77004677bffbe1cbfeb2

Best way to run it is probably something like:

while true; do autorotate.sh; sleep 2; done

That looks like a really handy script.

There are rumors of newer IPU (Image Processing Unit) code in the pipeline to improve drawing speed when the desktop is rotated.  That will make life much more pleasant.
