I tried using your rotate script on my ThinkPad X230T, and I get an Error. The Screen flips, but Touch input is inverted. So if I move the pen to the left, the mouse pointer heads right. This error happens under Gnome 3 with every rotation script I have found so far. Here is the error message:

Property "/Xft/RGBA" does not exist on channel "xsettings". If a new property should be created, use the --create option.
Traceback (most recent call last):

This is probably a gnome issue, but I'm not sure. If you say it doesn't have to do with the script, I'll be happy to head to the forums...
