ARandR – a simple visual front end for XRandR

ARandR is designed to provide a simple visual front end for XRandR 1.2/1.3. Relative monitor positions are shown graphically and can be changed in a drag-and-drop way.


* Full control over output positioning (instead of plain "left of") with edge snapping
* Saving configurations as executable shell scripts (configurations can be loaded without using this program)
* Configuration files can be edited to include additional payload (like xsetwacom commands tablet PC users need when rotating), which is preserved when editing
* Metacity key binding integration:
o Saved configurations can be bound to arbitrary keys via metacity's custom commands.
o Several layouts can be bound to one key; they are cycled through. (Useful for "rotate" buttons on tablet PCs.)

* Main widget separated from packaged application (to facilitate integration with existing solutions)

Install ARandR in Ubuntu

    Linux just keeps getting better and better each day!

    Can’t wait to see Linux take over a higher % of the current market and compete shoulder to shoulder with Microsoft Windows 🙂
