comment Configure Ubuntu 13.10 to rotate display globally?
I just tried it on my 14.04 system and my simple minded approach didn't work. My screens are not rotated without my monitors.xml in place. I used the nvidia configuration tool and saved the result to /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Moved my monitors.xml aside and got no rotation on login.

Great! Thanks. Can you share your xorg.conf settings? Perhaps as another answer? I'll upvote it for sure.

Have you figured out how to better distinguish between active and inactive windows? I'm on that same quest.

Did you get a solution to this? I'm having an apparently related problem.

Sorry, I missed the reference to Cinnamon.
