SYNOPSIS

autorandr [OPTION] [PROFILE]

DESCRIPTION

This program automatically detects connected display hardware and then loads an appropriate X11 setup using xrandr. It also supports the use of display profiles for different hardware setups.

Autorandr also includes several virtual configurations including off, common, clone-largest, horizontal, and vertical. See the documentation for explanation of each.

OPTIONS

-h, --help

Display help text and exit

-c, --change

-d, --default PROFILE

Make profile PROFILE the default profile. The default profile is used if no suitable profile can be identified. Else, the current configuration is kept.

-l, --load PROFILE

Load profile PROFILE

-s, --save PROFILE

Save the current setup to profile PROFILE

-r, --remove PROFILE

Remove profile PROFILE

--batch

Run autorandr for all users with active X11 sessions

--debug

--dry-run

--fingerprint

--match-edid

--version

FILES

Configuration files are searched for in the autorandr directory in the colon separated list of paths in $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS - or in /etc/xdg if that var is not set. They are then looked for in ~/.autorandr and if that doesn't exist, in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/autorandr or in ~/.config/autorandr if that var is unset.

In each of those directories it looks for directories with config and setup in them. It is best to manage these files with the autorandr utility.
