Hi 白い熊,

白い熊 写道:
file root to specify this config in an (extra-special-file statement, so that it'd be picked up on login and GDM would be properly rotated?

*Must* it use extra-special-file? If so, why? You can try it (untested):

 (extra-special-file "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/01-monitor.conf"
                     "Section \"Monitor\" blah blah blah")

and see if Guix's Xorg looks in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d at all.

Instead, what I'd use is (untested):

(services […]
             ;; You might have a keyboard-layout
             ;; here already, for example.
             (extra-config "
Section \"Monitor\"
   Identifier \"DSI-1\"
   Option \"Rotate\" \"right\"

As a side note - and might be associated with this - can a small
resolution be specified for just the GDM login screen - because on this computer the screen is tiny, the resolution big and thus the GDM
login screen is with super tiny font everywhere.

That I don't know, but it's a similar ‘just create a file in /usr!’ mess, according to several pages like <>.

I don't know how to Guixify *that*.

Kind regards,
