I tried going into system settings and display, and tried to rotate my third monitor which is connected using wavelink (which uses displaylink driver). I can rotate primary and second monitor (connected via my laptop onboard vga output); however my third monitor which is connected dvi to usb wont rotate.

I entered xrandr in my terminal and here is the output:

how do i get the third screen (DVI-I-1-1 connected 1920x1080+0+0 520mm x 290mm ) to rotate clockwise via xrandr in terminal?

    It looks like if rotation is supported it will appear after the monitor in the xrandr output. VGA1 has (normal left inverted right x axis y axis), but the DVI-I-1-1 does not have that information, so it may not be possible to rotate that monitor. – Terrance Apr 28 '17 at 23:20
  • yeah i just re-read that connected monitor in terminal and it didnt give any rotate options. Weird part is i installed displaylink driver it recommended for this usb to dvi/vga adapter. After installation it gives no others instructions on what to do....sigh.. – Joseph Bourne Apr 28 '17 at 23:22
