You can use the following script found on doc.ubuntu-fr.org(based on xbacklight tool): Create a new configuration file brightness under /usr/local/bin with the following contents: #!/bin/bash error="Usage: $0 up | $0 down" xbl=`xbacklight` limite1=2 limite2=10 limite3=40 limite4=100 if [ "$#" -eq 1 ] then if [ $1 = "up" ] then # ...

xrandr is your friend. You are going to need to know the official names of the outputs that Linux supports for your hardware, and "xrandr -q" can report those. Here's an example of a script I wrote that I run when I want to switch to a 3-display configuration (this is very specific to my hardware and display layout, but you should be able to adapt to your ...

To simplify in Xfce for example please install "arandr" which should be available in your distro packages. Configure your display using "arandr" then save it as "displayLayout" for example. Arandr should add for you ".sh" extension so it can be directly used in "function connect()" as written in the script "hotplug_monitor.sh" mentioned by iyrin above, for ...

As long as you have Xorg running, it uses memory and CPU-time. There's one computer to share among all of the processes. If you omit the Xorg processes, there's more available resources for your application.

If you're saying that you previously had no xorg.conf, and that you created it with that content, then I would start simpler. You don't need all that. All you should need to utilize the nvidia driver is: Section "Device" Identifier "nvidia" Driver "nvidia" EndSection You might also need the following for OpenGL: Section "Files" ModulePath "/...

When you supply an xorg.conf file, this is the complete configuration. You can't just add one option, you have to supply all mandatory parts, including declaring the input and output peripherals. It's common for programs to start with sensible options and allow them to be overridden by a configuration file, but in the case of Xorg, supplying a configuration ...

Assuming you're talking about X, you can add a CustomEDID option to the Monitor section of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf. For example, I have the following in xorg.conf on my mythtv box: Section "Monitor" Identifier "LG 42LD560" VendorName "GSM" ModelName "LG TV" Option "UseEDID" "True" Option "CustomEDID" "DFP-1:/etc/X11/LG-42LD560.edid.bin"...

Uim First released in 2005, uim is a multilingual input method library with interfaces to GTK and QT, as well as anything that supports xim (and more). Looking at computers I have nearby, Arch Linux, NetBSD, and Ubuntu all offer uim packages through their default distribution channels, which (to me) indicates some measure of acceptance in the community at ...

A modern xorg should just pick all *.conf files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and use them. Xorg can figure out a lot by itself, if you just drop a file with the needed change (an entire Section-EndSection) into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/, Xorg will use that configuration at a higher precedence than the files in /usr/share/X11/. The files in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf....

With xte that comes with the xautomation package it is possible to send keypresses to X. The package name may differ between Linux distros.
