In Gnome 3, usually we can enable screen rotation for a display in the Settings -> Displays gui. However, on Fedora Rawhide running "Gnome Wayland" (3.20), this gui does not display the usual rotation arrows. How do you rotate a display's orientation in 3.20? Is there a configuration file that can be edited (I couldn't find it) or created?
