    Hi Mark!

    I’ve been trying to rotate the touch device as described in documentation:

    xinput –set-prop ‘ADS7846 Touchscreen’ ‘Evdev Axis Inversion’ 0 0

    But it doesn’t work anymore with recent kernels. As you can read here, there is a new method:

    https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=172025

    Following this instructions, this command works for me (rotate 180º):

    xinput –set-prop ‘ADS7846 Touchscreen’ ‘Coordinate Transformation Matrix’ -1 0 1 0 -1 1 0 0 1

    You can find a detailed description of this “Coordinate Transformation Matrix” here:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/InputCoordinateTransformation

    Please, update the documentation ASAP to avoid other users getting confused with this.

    Thanks!
