Pentoo on Steam Deck

Installation Notes

  • If using Rufus, remember to use “MBR”, not “GPT” scheme (SteamDeck limitation, not Pentoo)

Display Orientations

  • Change screen orientation in current boot: xrandr -o right

  • Orient touch screen in current boot: xinput set-prop "FTS3528:00 2808:1015" --type=float "Coordinate Transformation Matrix" 0 1 0 -1 0 1 0 0 1

  • Look for FTS3528:00, for me it was the last item under “Virtual core pointer”

  • Core Transformation explained
