You should be able to do it with xrandr, something like 'xrandr -o left'

Left, right, normal and inverted are the possible rotation options.

I believe you need to add this to the driver config section in your xorg.conf to allow you to do this:
Code:
 Option "Rotate" "RandR"

It'd be added in the 'device' section.

Samsung has their own proprietary software to do this in Windows, it won't be as simple since they don't make the same software for Linux. If it is possible to do this, you'll probably have to come up with some kind of script that works with this: http://jaffar.cs.msu.su/oleg/ddcci/

What I have done with my screen that rotates is just add a couple launcher buttons to the xfce panel, just click to rotate.
