Disable screen rotation

Postby TheObserver » Sat Jul 22, 2017 5:20 am

Hello, I have a problem with my girlfriends laptop which has a touchscreen that is also able to rotate. The rotation unfortunately doesn't work so I'd like to disable it.
I tried: gsettings set org.cinnamon.settings-daemon.peripherals.touchscreen orientation-lock true
But that doesn't work. The machine is a Sony Vaio Fit multi-flip SVF13N1L2E
