how to rotate screen in ubuntu

Step 1:
Ctrl+Alt+T => should open the terminal

Step 2:
$xrandr -o right => rotate right from normal
$xrandr -o normal => back to normal
$xrandr --orientation => for more options

the mouse/touchpad should follow the screen automatically

Step 3:
open keyboard -> shortcuts -> custom shortcuts
add name (eg:rotate right); command(as before)
click "disable" press Ctrl+right_arrow => rotates screen right from normal
