Can I automatically generate a command-line for xrandr based on the current set-up?

by Tim Baverstock   Last Updated September 11, 2019 10:02 AM

I wrote a set-up script for my dual screen set-up some while ago, for when X went bonkers and I needed to restore sanity, but I just found a spare monitor and worked out I can use DP from a USB-C port I didn't know I had.

It suddenly occurred to me that xrandr might be able to create its own command-line for the current set-up, rather than me having to fiddle about writing it myself, but I can't find any options for that.

Is there a utility for this? Is it a stupid idea?

Tut. Sometimes asking the question gets you different search terms.

Arandr can save xrandr command-lines.
