How to rotate your screen in Ubuntu/Linux

By | December 4, 2015

I had a dedicated key for auto rotate on/off on my laptop which worked in Windows but in not Ubuntu. I’m glad because I got to learn a new command called xrandr. I remember this by thinking of x random r.

It is really neat and I recommend you running these commands and experiment. These are the commands you want to run:

xrandr --output eDP1 --rotate right
xrandr --output eDP1 --rotate left
xrandr --output eDP1 --rotate normal
xrandr --output eDP1 --rotate inverted

Replace eDP1 with the name of your desired display.
