Post Enabling the extra inverted landscape rotation via KUAL

Here is a simple extension for the TOUCH and PAPERWHITE
(Thanks to Jimmy-Jim for confirming PW support)

Installation:

Just splatter the extracted rotations folder into /mnt/us/extensions like usual.

Effect:

It sets the rotation to "inverted landscape".
The next book you open will be in this view.

it DOES NOT AFFECT the main User interface.

Changing back:

To go back to ordinary "Landscape" or "Portrait" views just use the menu options in the reader itself... The moment you choose an alternate view then the "inverted landscape" view is gone, for good.

Do it again?

To re-activate "inverted landscape" again it is required to click the button in KUAL.

SUPPORT:

K2, K3, K4 are NOT SUPPORTED (you don't need it)

Don't use it on a Kinde 2, Kindle 3, DX, Kindle 4.

it will "show up" but is not required... as all rotations are already supported.

Thanks

Thank you for this! Will have KUAL installed on my PW ASAP!

One last request, would it be possible to have inverted portrait view as well? I usually read in bed on my right side but when I turn to the left, it's a little hard to hold on to my Kindle cover by its folded-back spine. Having an inverted portrait mode would help so much with that

No worries. As I indicated - the only real benefit is the extra inverted landscape.

I did test PDF support. seems fine.

I will probably tidy this up more at some point. but meh. it's a "goer".

Happy to help. apologies for the delays.
Testing always takes 10 times as long as creation

Hmm. not easily as far as I could tell. seems to simply ignore the request.
Will have to dig further.

perhaps some "inversion of framebuffer" wangle could do the job. "Not Sure"

At this point... "not immediately."

I recall thinking this had only so much value (hence it's deprecation)

The script is super trivial. should anyone hack something together I will happily roll in the changes.

No problem, just the inverted landscape alone is already a huge help. Many thanks again!

Update: Installing KUAL turned out to be ridiculously easy Have inverted landscape working on my PW now!
