NAME

       sway-output - output configuration commands for sway

DESCRIPTION

       You may combine output commands into one, like so:

           output HDMI-A-1 mode 1920x1080 pos 1920,0 bg ~/wallpaper.png stretch

       You can get a list of output names with swaymsg -t get_outputs. You may also match any
       output by using the output name "*". Additionally, "-" can be used to match the focused
       output by name and "--" can be used to match the focused output by its identifier.

       Some outputs may have different names when disconnecting and reconnecting. To identify
       these, the name can be substituted for a string consisting of the make, model and serial
       which you can get from swaymsg -t get_outputs. Each value must be separated by one space.
       For example:

           output "Some Company ABC123 0x00000000" pos 1920,0

COMMANDS

       output <name> mode|resolution|res <WIDTHxHEIGHT>[@<RATE>[Hz]]
           Configures the specified output to use the given mode. Modes are a combination of
           width and height (in pixels) and a refresh rate that your display can be configured to
           use. For a list of available modes for each output, use swaymsg -t get_outputs.

           Examples:

               output HDMI-A-1 mode 1920x1080

               output HDMI-A-1 mode 1920x1080@60Hz

       output <name> position|pos <X> <Y>
           Places the specified output at the specific position in the global coordinate space.
           The cursor may only be moved between immediately adjacent outputs. If scaling is
           active, it has to be considered when positioning. For example, if the scaling factor
           for the left output is 2, the relative position for the right output has to be divided
           by 2.  The reference point is the top left corner so if you want the bottoms aligned
           this has to be considered as well.

           Example:

               output HDMI1 scale 2

               output HDMI1 pos 0 1020 res 3200x1800

               output eDP1 pos 1600 0 res 1920x1080

           Note that the left x-pos of eDP1 is 1600 = 3200/2 and the bottom y-pos is 1020 + (1800
           / 2) = 1920 = 0 + 1920

       output <name> scale <factor>
           Scales the specified output by the specified scale factor. An integer is recommended,
           but fractional values are also supported. If a fractional value are specified, be
           warned that it is not possible to faithfully represent the contents of your windows -
           they will be rendered at the next highest integral scale factor and downscaled. You
           may be better served by setting an integral scale factor and adjusting the font size
           of your applications to taste. HiDPI isn't supported with Xwayland clients (windows
           will blur).

       output <name> subpixel rgb|bgr|vrgb|vbgr|none
           Manually sets the subpixel hinting for the specified output. This value is usually
           auto-detected, but some displays may misreport their subpixel geometry. Using the
           correct subpixel hinting allows for sharper text.  Incorrect values will result in
           blurrier text. When changing this via swaymsg, some applications may need to be
           restarted to use the new value.

       output <name> background|bg <file> <mode> [<fallback_color>]
           Sets the wallpaper for the given output to the specified file, using the given scaling
           mode (one of "stretch", "fill", "fit", "center", "tile"). If the specified file cannot
           be accessed or if the image does fill the entire output, a fallback color may be
           provided to cover the rest of the output.  fallback_color__ should be specified as
           #RRGGBB. Alpha is not supported.

       output <name> background|bg <color> solid_color
           Sets the background of the given output to the specified color. color should be
           specified as #RRGGBB. Alpha is not supported.

       output <name> transform <transform> [clockwise|anticlockwise]
           Sets the background transform to the given value. Can be one of "90", "180", "270" for
           rotation; or "flipped", "flipped-90", "flipped-180", "flipped-270" to apply a rotation
           and flip, or "normal" to apply no transform. If a single output is chosen and a
           rotation direction is specified (clockwise or anticlockwise) then the transform is
           added or subtracted from the current transform.

       output <name> disable|enable
           Enables or disables the specified output (all outputs are enabled by default).

       output <name> toggle
           Toggle the specified output.

       output <name> dpms on|off
           Enables or disables the specified output via DPMS. To turn an output off (ie. blank
           the screen but keep workspaces as-is), one can set DPMS to off.
