Bug Description

I'm on 17.10. One screen - the laptop screen - rotates at random, typically when a video is playing, but not, I think always. It rotates 180 degrees and stays upside down. Mouse movememnts are reversed (ie correct for the orientation of the screen).

I tried

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.orientation active false

following a thread here https://askubuntu.com/questions/968169/screen-randomly-rotates-on-ubuntu-17-10/968284

but it doesn't stop the behaviour.

Grateful if an admin could correct my typo in the heading.

Seems to be OK using Xorg.
