Display Rotation with Tasker fails.
« on: April 06, 2014, 15:37:36 »
Hi!
I'm trying to let Tasker automatically change the automatic Android display rotation to "on" every time locus is running.
This works only in the beginning of the task.

Unfortunately the display rotation switches back to "off" once locus is fully loaded!

I'm using this Tasker profile already successfully with other apps (e.g. browser or gallery) so I wonder that it won't work with locus...? ! ?
I already tried to let locus run as system service -> no success!

Regards Nik :-)

Hello Nick,

may you please check your settings in Locus in: Menu > Settings > Display > Orientation lock

You should have there "System settings" to make your idea work. Other settings with probably overwrite settings from Tasker

I just decided not to build another profile as a workaround :-)

btw. :
SGS2 (GT-I9100) 4.1.2
XWLSN NeatROM Lite v4.6.1

edit
It's not fixed in 2.20.2!

edit
Still doesn't work with the new version! I have locus on sd card so it loses it's admin rights after reboot but even with admin settings it won't work!

I'm giving up on this one now :-)
It seems to be not to easy to implement - I guess the complete architecture of locus is in the way...
Anyway, if I really need it urgently I'll find a workaround! :-)
