Rotate monitor using xorg.conf in Ubuntu

If you have an Nvidea card and you have installed the Nvidea proprietary drivers (nvidea-settings), you will notice that you can't rotate your monitor using the Ubuntu settings any more. The solution is simple. Under the "Devices" section in the xorg.conf file found at /etc/X11/xorg.conf, simply add the line

Option "Rotate" "CCW"

where "CCW" stands for counter-clockwise. Naturally, "CW" is the other option.
