my setup is a

PRETTY_NAME="Ubuntu 22.10" NAME="Ubuntu" VERSION_ID="22.10" VERSION="22.10 (Kinetic Kudu)" VERSION_CODENAME=kinetic ID=ubuntu ID_LIKE=debian

Monitor 1 = Fujitsu P27-9 TS QHD in 2K resolution rotated 90 degrees to the left (portrait orientation) Monitor 2 = HP X24ih in FullHD resolution (landscape orientation)

The Fujitsu monitor is connected to a Digitus KVM switch 2-Port EAN 4016032466833 via Display Port, the HP monitor is connected to the Fujitsu monitor via Display Port. (daisy chain).

A Microsoft Surface Laptop is connected to the second Display Port of the KVM switch. When I switch from the Surface Laptop to the Linux computer, the Fujitsu monitor goes back to landscape mode although in the Xubuntu Display Settings I set the mode to "Orientation -> left". Can someone help me preserve the orientation mode on the Fujitsu monitor.

I've found a solution here in the XFCE forums


Opened "Display" -> "Advanced" and created a profile with the current settings that loads whenever the system detects a screen or multiple screens. So now when I switch from the Windows machine to the Linux machine with the KVM, the display settings on the Linux machine are correct.
