autorandr - Automatically change screen layout
-h, --help get this small help -c, --change reload current setup -s, --save <profile> save your current setup to profile <profile> -r, --remove <profile> remove profile <profile> -l, --load <profile> load profile <profile> -d, --default <profile> use profile <profile> if no other profile matches. [Most useful if set in ~/.config/autorandr/settings.ini]. --skip-options <option> comma separated list of xrandr arguments (e.g. "gamma") to skip both in detecting changes and applying a profile --force force (re)loading of a profile --fingerprint fingerprint your current hardware setup --config dump your current xrandr setup --dry-run don't change anything, only print the xrandr commands --debug enable verbose output --batch 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-largest Clone all connected outputs with the largest resolution (scaled down if necessary) horizontal Stack all connected outputs horizontally at their largest resolution vertical 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
