2 minor corrections to my previous posts: A 64 bit installation with a Radeon
(not NVIDIA) video card does not have the problem. Attachment 126261 XUbuntu
Boot Splash screen is the wrong description; the splash occurs after logging on
before the desktop is displayed.

Thank you Herr Dänzer; the solution corrects the problem on this machine. The
instructions on the first link tell how to add the PPA but not what to do after
that. The instructions on the second link were better; but "...update your
Ubuntu with the package herein" doesn't say what the name of the package is.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
sudo apt-get install mesa-vdpau-drivers
...didn't install any depends or upgrades, and did not solve the problem.

So I followed the instructions for reverting to the original drivers. In a
terminal I ran:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
Then I started the Synaptic package manager, forced it to update its package
list, searched for mesa-v and found one that was shown as requiring upgrade.
Marked for upgrade it and everything else that could be upgraded, and let
Synaptic make the changes. After re-boot, the rotated screen displayed
properly. Shouldn't the UBuntu Xenial repository be updated with this fix?
