Configure the Pi

Rotate your monitor

To rotate your monitor you'll need to add the following line to /boot/config.txt using the following command sudo nano /boot/config.txt
1
display_rotate=1
Copied!
You can also set this value to '3' to have a flipped vertical orientation.

Disable screensaver and remove panel

Edit the /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart file with nano /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart.
Reccomended To disable the screensaver you'll want to comment out (with a '#') the @xscreensaver. You'll also want to add the following lines to that same file
1
@xset s off
2
@xset -dpms
3
@xset s noblank
Copied!
Optional To remove the panel at the top of the screen to comment out the @lxpanel lines. If you want to be able to easily access the "menu" at the top of the screen do not do this step.

Hide the mouse when inactive

1
sudo apt-get install unclutter
Copied!
Then Add unclutter -idle 0.1 -root to /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart with sudo nano /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart
