linux – Flip the screen in Cubian Desktop (cubieboard A10)


I have a cubieboard a10 , which also has a monitor connected via vga , but there was a problem, flip the screen. I read a lot of topics about this, but nothing happens.
When entering the command:

xrandr -o inverted


X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request:  149 (RANDR)
Minor opcode of failed request:  2 (RRSetScreenConfig)
Serial number of failed request:  14
Current serial number in output stream:  14

Tried adding settings to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-sunxifb.conf
As written here:
But nothing has changed.

When trying to create a configuration file with the Xorg :1 -configure command Xorg :1 -configure
He writes this:

Here is the Xorg log:

Perhaps I do not understand something.
Please tell me what to do and how to turn this monitor all the same.
I updated everything and cubian and all packages.


Add (or fix if the section already exists) to xorg.conf or, if automatic config generation is used, to /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-sunxifb.conf

Section "Device"
    Identifier      "Allwinner A10/A13 FBDEV"
    Driver          "fbturbo"
    Option          "fbdev" "/dev/fb0"
    Option          "SwapbuffersWait" "true"
    Option          "AccelMethod" "G2D"
    Option          "Rotate" "UD"
    Option         "SWCursor" "On"

Restart "x". For 90 and 270 degrees of rotation, replace "UD", "CW" and "CCW" respectively. Excerpt from man: Option "Rotate" "string" Enable rotation of the display. The supported values ​​are "CW" (clockwise, 90 degrees), "UD" (upside down, 180 degrees) and "CCW" (counter clockwise, 270 degrees). Implies use of the shadow framebuffer layer. Default: off.
