I have elementary OS Juno installed on my laptop and it automatically rotates the screen to upside-down. then i have to go to display to fix this problem. but it doesn't stays normal. Sometimes later it goes to upside-down again which is frustrating. On gnome3 there is a rotation lock button but I cannot find rotation lock button on Juno.

I don't need the screen rotation, how can I disable it completely?


Elementary doesn't have a screen orientation setting AFAIK, but you can try the following in the terminal:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.orientation active false

I kinda like screen rotation :)


I have juno running in an HP EliteBook 8460p with the screen rotation problem when I tilt the keyboard. To stop this, this worked for me:

sudo systemctl stop iio-sensor-proxy.service

This one worked for me

xrandr -o normal

there is a rotation lock in juno available under display in the system settings.
