Is there a way to change the screen rotation of a specific screen in GNOME?

I tried xrandr -d XWAYLAND1 -o right, but that gives me Can't open display XWAYLAND1.

  • @don_crissti There's no way to do that in that menu on a Wayland server. – Jeroen Bollen Nov 22 '15 at 16:05

    There has been progress on this in mutter. Have you tried this with Gnome 3.20? – ybakos Mar 27 '16 at 17:27
  • I've just tried this via the gui on Fedora Rawhide, Gnome 3.20 Wayland - the gui doesn't display the usual rotation arrows either. – ybakos Mar 27 '16 at 22:18
  • mutter improvements are targeted for gnome-3.22 and later – lkraav Aug 1 '16 at 12:44

Yes, as of Gnome 3.22, before that version, Gnome relied on driver support for rotation, only intel drivers support that, iirc. You could try double clicking the display in the Monitor settings menu to access the setting.

You could also try <Super>+MMB where <super> is the Windows/Linux key on your keyboard and MMB is the middle mouse button.

I tried xrandr -d XWAYLAND1 -o right, but that gives me Can't open display XWAYLAND1.

xrandr is for Xorg, not Wayland.

    While it's true that it works now, it did not work in GNOME 3.22. GNOME 3.22 no longer relied on the drivers, indeed, but did not implement the feature itself. – Jeroen Bollen Dec 10 '17 at 12:14
