@TheGibson - Yeah. It seems to change the config file... but I'm looking at the screen and not seeing anything different.

Mind you, I'm ssh'ing into it to change the config. Wonder if that's why. Does ssh create a different desktop session than a locally logged in user?

I dunno.

Brain hurting now.

@tinker @thegibson if you're desperate to find out the file it's being saved to, I suggest strace + grep on calls to open or write.

@rook @TheGibson - Think I found the json file itself... but it seems to be overwritten by something else.

Yeah, may use strace. Cheers!

Ok... opened a console locally (using my tiny little 5inch screen!) and it does appear that ssh'ing into it opens a different "desktop environment" insofar as using kscreen-doctor doesn't affect the local settings.

Maybe. I'm learning this shit by doing... don't see much documentation. But that's probably my inability to use internet search engines.

Hey!!! I got something to change on my desktop!

I tried to set rotation to 'left'...

And now the entire screen disappeared.

Small victories / defeats?
