When I turn on the computer, the login screen is rotated. But when I log in to my account, the screen is normal. I have an ATI graphics card on an AMD laptop. The settings is normal for two user accounts, so I don't know why it is rotated only in the login screen. Please help me.

Is your monitor rotated (eg. would it considered be 3:4 or 9:16)? Perhaps the proprietary driver settings aren't kicking in until after login? – tgm4883 Feb 12 '12 at 1:17
sorry, I don't understand very well what you are asking me, but I think my monitor is not rotated because in the display window there are options only for 4:3 and 16:9 settings – Edwar Feb 12 '12 at 1:47
I could not edit that last comment. My monitor IS NOT ROTATED – Edwar Feb 12 '12 at 2:30
Is it a new issue? – Tachyons Feb 12 '12 at 2:58
I think this is a new issue, because I have searched on the internet and it seems to be that no one has had this problem before – Edwar Feb 12 '12 at 3:25

I don't know will this help you but now you must do this

  1. Download one good image for your login screen from the Internet(if you don't have one)
  2. Open terminal
  3. Type sudo gedit /etc/lightdm/unity-greeter.conf
  4. Type your password
  5. You see that text editor. If yes than just edit that background= and place there your images path. enter image description here
  6. Save and logout. The image will change.
  7. If this wont work again just go to your images folder and rotate it using some image editor
  8. Save the image and logout. This must help.

How does it help if the OP needs to type his password in a box that's vertical and not horizontal because his screen is rotated? – Nitin Venkatesh Feb 19 '12 at 8:06
