I run this Surf-Tablet in Dual-Boot
Win 10 and Peppermint;

After installing PM X
the (grub)StartScreen is rotated 90 degrees, also while loading
and at Desktop (i changed manually at settings) i have the normal picture


It seems that this computer is wired by Linux (cause gyroskop)
I made the instalation on normal desktop;just to proof;
that booth OS work on this unit

Anyone any idea?
(Pls. solution step by step,cause i am not to use inside all this sudo stuff; THX)

Edit2: After shuting down (Menu-button) the next time, when i want restart under PM X
he came to the "start"-bar (animated) and immidently, he wrote: Shutting down (and switch off)
I never had this before

What s that

That you were able to get Peppermint running in Tablet mode at all is a bit astonishing Lord Khan. We have never optimized any of our releases for tablets... at least not to my knowledge... let me get the attention of and refer one of our devs...

Thx;
I will try this this eve
----------------
Edit: Modify as recommanded
Result: Semi-Helpfull (but at least it work 4 the moment)

As i could see, after changing line CMD-Line Linux "silent" i could see,
what he is loading;
with the rotate he make this correct; i had to reset on desktop/manually again  rotate right

Now only the Starting (this bar, which fill it slf) is wrong, but this isn t that important

So, thanx for the moment for this link

Tablet-Modus...
I haven t been in absolut tablet-modus (without keyboard) yet (I have few devices here-see other topic)

With keyboard it is just a normal "N4000"-Unit (with mmc) - giving me a lot of troubles, when u switch something inside Bios/UEFI (incl. totaly off of the device - so never touch by this computer the bios)

So i started at Win 10 -> Restart in UEFI -> Switch start device (and only this !!!!!!) and i could start (from usb-Port at keyboard) PM X (Live System) and install

And beside the few probs -which i asked- it run fine;
and this device should only replace an old N3500 Device (no moving, no nothing - just getting Datas)
and it is cheap (200€) and do not use much energie.

In case u are interesed, i can report, if the features of "Tablet-Modus" (Gyroscope etc.) work

When u say: PM was never made 4 tablet modus; i am not surprised, that i get now answer for the virtual keyboard (on the display) - this i allready saw at other Devices, like Raspberry PI (Debian)

But TabletModus is not my priority - nice, when it would work; if not.. it s okay too
-----------------------------
Edit:
I had to set up new the device, cause it switch off permanently;
while this i tryed few things -cause i made the settings above-

Touchscreen ist not available
After swapping (took key board on/off from device - keyboard is locked
Gyroscope (changing the view of angle) is not working

So... it s nothing else, than a cheap netbook - only 12 years later
(The Acer Spin1 react a little bit other; i will give u a feedback too; in case u want)

Edit 2:
I wouldn t recomand to use this device for linux
cause there are a lot of trouble, p.e he always went into the shutdown menu - and i have no glue,
why this happend ; I guess it have to do with the updates, or the battery -evenwhen it is full loaded,
or with the shutdown-order - sometimes it works, sometimes not; but always reboot, went  into win10 and shut down from there... isnt usefull

Other linux Distris wouldnt start; but there are the same rotate problrm
so it seems: This device is just cheap - nothing else


THX for all helps
