XRandRoll

None of the existing display configuration tools does what I think is "the right thing". So I went and wrote one.

The Right Thing

  • Don't start from a stored config, use xrandr to read the systems' current state
  • Allow creating "profiles" that will get applied smartly (not there yet)
  • Generate a xrandr invocation to reflect the desired configuration
  • Allow per-monitor scaling
  • Allow arbitrary monitor positioning
  • Implement "scale everything so all the pixels are the same size"

To try:

If you have PySide2: python -m xrandroll in the folder where you cloned it.

TODO:

  • Implement other things
  • Forget about it forever
