    That happened to me all the time when I was on Ubuntu - the temporary solution would be to reboot but I even tried to reinstall Ubuntu and it persisted, so I think it's a hardware prob

    This happened to me once. I think there was an easy fix but I can't search the interwebs for you right now.

    exec usr/share/applications/gnome-display-panel.desktop
    that should bring up the display settings

    So the display settings didn't show anything except resolution, and I was a little too lazy to try more methods to get it right because I just wanted a live system to save some data from a failing HDD. What's funny though is that the now unsupported 17.04 version worked fine, but I couldn't install ncdu, so I reverted to 16.04 LTS. I think I'll stick to that when I get the new drive

    Just Open a terminal, strg alt t should work

    xrandr -q

    Check the output name you are using, like VGA-1, DSP1, HDMI1, etc. May differ from decide to device

    xrandr --output [output name here] --rotate inverted

    And go :)

    Another way, external monitor.
    I am sure the manufacturer of the laptop build in the display 180° inverted from what the manufacturer of the display build it for.
    Happens a lot ... Even in smartphones. Has sth to do with space and connections I think... Engineering stuff 😃

    I finally found the issue! GNOME3 seems to have a screen orientation mechanism in order to be usable in tablets. And this computer has an accelerometer built in the keyboard. So it sometimes gets confused between upside and downside :)

    @oscarascal oh wow, notebook with accelerometer? :D that's... interesting
