I'm trying to change the orientation of my laptop screen in linux mint and then my mouse clicks are totally ignored, so I couldn't change the display back to normal (with the GUI). My screen also showed about 40% completely black.

xrandr output

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1366 x 768, maximum 16384 x 16384 
eDP connected primary 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 194mm 
    1366x768 59.97*+ 
    1280x720 59.97 
    1024x768 59.97 
    800x600 59.97 
    640x480 59.97 
HDMI-A-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

Here is what I get here is what goes wrong

  • When photographing emitive display screens, then don't use a flash. These screens give of their own light, the flash will have the opposite effect to what you want. Normally we prefer screen shots to photo, but I think you have an excuse. – ctrl-alt-delor Mar 9 at 11:12
