I am building a game in LibGDX and the game screen orientation is in landscape. I want it to stay in landscape but I still want the user to be able to flip the device onto the other side and the screen will rotate with it. My application refuses to do that and I don't know what to do to fix that. I tried turning on my accelerometer and compass (wasn't expecting anything from compass) but nothing changed. Any ideas?

It defaults to locked on "landscape" mode in a libGDX project. You need to go into your "AndroidManifest.xml" and change android:screenOrientation="landscape" too android:screenOrientation="sensorLandscape"

There are more options - http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/manifest/activity-element.html#screen Just replace "sensorLandScape" with the one you want.

I know this old, but for the users who come here for an answer, all you need to do is in the "AndroidManifest.xml" file. Where it has a tag you will need to place a android:screenOrientation="sensor" to track its orientation from landscape to portrait and vice versa
