Help with xrandr display rotation
 
I need some help switching my display to portrait mode. According to the xrandr documentation
Quote:

xrandr -o right
should work. But it doesn't:
Quote:

root@mantis / # ./usr/X11R6/bin/xrandr -o right
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 156 (RANDR)
Minor opcode of failed request: 2 (RRSetScreenConfig)
Serial number of failed request: 12
Current serial number in output stream: 12
I am using the nvidia drivers. I know this monitor can do it, because I tried it on windows.

I'm not even sure it is an option with xrandr unless I do something else:

Current rotation - normal
Current reflection - none
Rotations possible - normal
Reflections possible - none
Setting size to 0, rotation to normal
Setting reflection on neither axis
If there's another way to make the switch, I'd love to hear about it.
