Auto-Rotate off by 90 degrees

Until recently, my laptop's accelerometer did not work at all in Fedora, but after a recent update it now does. However, when it rotates, it is 90 degrees to right of what it should be. Does anyone have any ideas how I might have it rotate correctly? For now I have to turn my laptop sideways and click the rotation lock button every time I turn on the laptop.

I am running Fedora 26 x64 on Wayland on a Lenovo laptop.

Disable wayland and see if the problems go away.
