Default Ubuntu "rotate screen" problem.

Using Gutsy 7.10 (latest build)
Installed the drivers using the Envy program (latest)
Go to the system> preferences> screen resolution .. screen and the rotate button is grayed out.
Have gone into xorg.conf and entered the line;
Option "RandRRotate" "True" saved it and exited .. re booted and still grayed out.
Am I missing something here?
(using an FX 5500 256 with a generic pivot enabled monitor (Flexus or GES Pure View .. no longer in business.))

Please attach an nvidia-bug-report.log, or else there's not much anybody can do to help you.

no bug report .. this is ONE MACHINE specific for one. (have another machine using a 6200 card that went like butter.
The "bug" is that the rotate button on the screen resolution pop up is grayed out. All I have read here and on the Ubuntu forums indicate that the adding of that line of code (RandRRotate True) into the xorg.conf file is ALL that you are supposed to do. But think there MAY be something else.
5500 card works fine otherwise with great graphics. Just the ROTATE function is not working as it should.

The option is RandRRotation, not RandRRotate. That's likely your problem, though without a bug report, it's impossible to say for sure.
