           enable verbose output

           run autorandr for all users with active X11 sessions


       To  prevent  a  profile from being loaded, place a script called "block" in its directory.
       The script is evaluated before the screen setup is inspected, and in case of it  returning
       a  value  of  0  the profile is skipped. This can be used to query the status of a docking
       station you are about to leave.

       If no suitable profile can be identified, the current configuration is  kept.   To  change
       this behaviour and switch to a fallback configuration, specify --default <profile>.

       Another  script called "postswitch" can be placed in the directory ~/.config/autorandr (or
       ~/.autorandr if you have an old installation) as well as in any profile  directories:  The
       scripts are executed after a mode switch has taken place and can notify window managers.


       The following virtual configurations are available:

       common Clone all connected outputs at the largest common resolution

              Clone all connected outputs with the largest resolution (scaled down if necessary)

              Stack all connected outputs horizontally at their largest resolution

              Stack all connected outputs vertically at their largest resolution


       # save the current setup and set default
       autorandr --save mysetup
       echo -e '[config]\ndefault=mysetup' > ~/.config/autorandr/settings.ini
       # put laptop in dock (or plug in additional monitors)
       # run appropriate xrandr commands to fix things up
       autorandr --save docked_setup
       # now remove the laptop from the dock, and settings return to mysetup
