Ubuntu – Ubuntu 17.10 Boots 90 degrees

17.10

Trying to install 17.10 on Asus laptop. 16.04 worked fine but 17.10 boots 90 degrees off (screen is rotated as if a tablet was rotated). Laptop is a trasformer type so if I rotate is rotates the screen.

  • The installation disk will show the screen 90 degrees off. When installed, the screen will right itself very nicely. To correct the screen from the the DVD boot, open a terminal and type..."gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.peripherals.touchscreen orientation-lock true"
