       [-o orientation] [-s size] [-x] [-y]


       Xrandr is used to set the size, orientation and/or  reflection  of  the
       outputs for a screen. It can also set the screen size.  There are a few
       global options; the rest modify a  particular  output  and  follow  the
       specification of that output on the command line.

       --help Print out a summary of the usage and exit.

       -v     Print out the RandR version reported by the X server and exit.

              causes  xrandr to be more verbose. When used with -q (or without
              other options), xrandr will display more information  about  the
              server  state. When used along with options that reconfigure the
              system,  progress  will  be   reported   while   executing   the
              configuration changes.

       -q     When  this  option  is present, or when no configuration changes
              are requested, xrandr will display  the  current  state  of  the

       -screen snum
              This option selects which screen to manipulate. Note this refers
              to the X screen abstraction, not the monitor (or output).

RandR version 1.2 options

       These options are only available for X server supporting RandR  version
       1.2 or newer.

       --prop This  option causes xrandr to display the contents of properties
              for each output. --verbose also enables --prop.

       --fb <width>x<height>
              Reconfigures the screen to the specified  size.  All  configured
              monitors  must  fit  within  this  size. When this option is not
              provided, xrandr computes the smallest  screen  size  that  will
              hold  the  set of configured outputs; this option provides a way
              to override that behaviour.

       --fbmm <width>x<height>
              Sets the reported values for the physical size  of  the  screen.
              Normally,  xrandr  resets  the  reported physical size values to
              keep the DPI constant.  This overrides that computation.

       --dpi <dpi>
              This also sets the reported physical size values of the  screen,
              it  uses  the  specified  DPI  value  to  compute an appropriate
              physical size using whatever pixel size will be set.

       Per-output options

       --output <output>
              Selects an output to reconfigure. Use either  the  name  of  the
              output or the XID.

       --auto For  connected but disabled outputs, this will enable them using
              their preferred mode (or, something close to 96dpi if they  have
              no  preferred  mode). For disconnected but enabled outputs, this
              will disable them.

       --mode <mode>
              This selects a mode. Use either the name or the XID for <mode>

              This  selects  the  same  mode  as  --auto,   but   it   doesn’t
              automatically enable or disable the output.

       --pos <x>x<y>
              Position the output within the screen using pixel coordinates.

       --rate <rate>
              This marks a preference for refresh rates close to the specified
              value, when multiple modes have the same name, this will  select
              the one with the nearest refresh rate.

       --reflect reflection
              Reflection  can be one of ’normal’ ’x’, ’y’ or ’xy’. This causes
              the output contents to be reflected across the specified axes.

       --rotate rotation
              Rotation can be one of ’normal’, ’left’, ’right’ or  ’inverted’.
              This  causes  the output contents to be rotated in the specified

       --left-of, --right-of, --above, --below, --same-as <another output>
              Use one of these options to position the output relative to  the
              position  of  another  output.  This allows convenient tiling of
              outputs within the screen.   The  position  is  always  computed
              relative  to  the new position of the other output, so it is not
              valid to say --output a --left-of b --output b --left-of a.

       --set <property> <value>
              Sets an output property. Integer properties may be specified  as
              a  valid (see --prop) decimal or hexadecimal (with a leading 0x)
              value. Atom properties may be set to any of the valid atoms (see
              --prop). String properties may be set to any value.

       --off  Disables the output.

       --crtc <crtc>
              Uses the specified crtc (either as an index in the list of CRTCs
              or XID).  In normal usage, this option is not required as xrandr
              tries to make sensible choices about which crtc to use with each
              output. When  that  fails  for  some  reason,  this  option  can
              override the normal selection.

       --newmode <name> mode
              New  modelines  can  be  added to the server and then associated
              with  outputs.   This  option  does  the  former.  The  mode  is
              specified   using  the  ModeLine  syntax  for  xorg.conf:  hdisp
              hsyncstart hsyncend  htotal  vdisp  vsyncstart  vsyncend  vtotal
              flags.  flags  can  be  zero  or more of +HSync, -HSync, +VSync,
              -VSync, Interlace, DoubleScan, CSync, +CSync, -CSync.

       --rmmode <name>
              This removes a mode from the server if it is otherwise unused.

       --addmode <output> <name>
              Add a mode to the set of valid modes for an output.

       --delmode <output> <name>
              Remove a mode from the set of valid modes for an output.

RandR version 1.1 options

       These options are available for X servers supporting RandR version  1.1
       or  older.  They  are  still  valid for newer X servers, but they don’t
       interact sensibly with version 1.2 options on the same command line.

       -s <size index> or -s <width>x<height>
              This sets the screen size, either matching by size or using  the
              index into the list of available sizes.

       -o rotation
              This  specifies the orientation of the screen, and can be one of
              normal, inverted, left or right.

       -x     Reflect across the X axis.

       -y     Reflect across the Y axis.
