    Ok, I made the plunge to upgrade my screen and all was going great until I ran the final updates. Did I run out of space? What do I need to do?

    thank you

    Paul

    Of the below commands, are all done at one time or do I do one at a time?

    Ok, I have that part fixed. I tried to run the commands all together instead of individually.. Now my problem is while the screen looks great and it appears as it should, when I tab an icon its upside down from what the picture shows?

    I made sure the screen was 180 as was the original so I did not make the initial txt change you mentioned as the screen was not flipped around?

    try this, in the file /boot/config.txt there is a line near the bottom that starts with dtoverlay, look for an entry on that line that says swapxy=0 and change it to swapxy=1 or visa versa.

    Thanks, but that did not work either. Just giving up on a reverse screen. I flipped it in the regular view, I lost just a hair from the top of the screen, but still can access them. Other than that everything works great.
