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?

No idea how to rotate on Wayland, but in Gnome 3.18.2 with Wayland it do not show the option so I think that is part of what is not ready yeat

Rotation support on Wayland relies on drivers and only few drivers support at least some rotation --

Have not tested on Fedora but seems like weston has a feature to rotate screen on wayland you can see that here thanks to the Arch Linux for the doc.
