Strange, but I found answer first! You use $ xrandr --output $monitorName --rotate $direction where $monitorName can be found in output of $ xrandr and $direction is left for counter-clockwise or right for clockwise. Edit: Using grep, it is possible to write a script like this: #!/bin/bash screen="HDMI1" descr=$(xrandr | grep "$screen") if echo ...

It is however very well possible to create a workaround, with essentially the same result. You can create a script that, on the occasion of connecting a second screen, lists all windows. ...
