Gnome 3.22.0 issue

Hello all

A problem with gnome has recently come up where the orientation of my desktop switches through 90, 180 or 370 degrees without warning, it is behaving like a tablet trying to orientate to the user. I am using a laptop I cannot find anything in the settings. Any suggestions


Intel® Core™ i7-5500U CPU @ 2.40GHz × 4
Kali GNU/Linux Rolling 64-bit


After a lot of searching I found this solution

rm -rf .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity
