Without RandRRotation option in xorg.conf, rotation with xrandr doesn't work and nvidia-settings doesn't even show rotation options tab

With RandRRotation option, nvidia-settings shows up the options but crashes whenever you try to use one of the rotation arrows. (see bug #740933)

Rotation using xrandr works with RandRRotation enabled, but sometimes some bugs occur, which are probably related to Compiz. (black screen with mouse pointer; other parts only appear when moving the mouse around)

Added Option "RandRRotation" "true" to xorg.conf. Got rotation option with nvidia XServer settings, but when clicking an arrow to rotate the settings window vanished, and nothing happened.

xrandr doesn't work as expected. My nvidia-settings appears to lack any rotation option.

I had: xrandr --output default --rotate inverted
xrandr: output default cannot use rotation "inverted" reflection "none"
I can't see rotation option in nvidia-settings.
With gnome-display-properties i can see the rotate option but it has only the "normal" entry
