xrandr example

Hi, I'd like some more comments from you on this: [1]

First of all, xrandr --auto enables all inactive outputs, so why do you turn some output off before? It has no effect.

Secondly, on my setup with two monitors (laptop + HDMI connected), the output that was off is set to clone the other output (effectively --same-as option). Though technically right, it is misleading to say that "This scrip auto sets best screen size" (for all available outputs I assume), because the monitor with higher resolution is padded with black space around the picture of the smaller output.

Thanks for your reply. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 07:31, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
