Sorry for being a little OT, but what do you mean with "problems that 
are present when this is done from the
commend-line, with xrandr"?
If you mean the mess after the rotation (strange lines/graphic that 
fixes after a refresh) I noticed this doesn't appear using the gestures 
rotation, anyone knows why?
If you mean misalignment of the touchscreen calibration, I noticed 
(speaking about gestures rotation) that this appears only when the 
screen is rotated upside down (phone oriented vertically with "hole" on 
top ;) ), while the remaining three positions are well calibrated.
Is there an explanation about this?
Thank you in advance, bye!
