Is there a possibility to configure the monitor configuration of Mutter/GNOME shell from command line in a Wayland Session or is that not implemented until now?

I have tried to change some things via the xrandr command (but it seems obvious to me, that this can not work as the "x" in xrandr indictates that it is a tool for the XServer).

This command has no effect (using Fedora 23 / GNOME 3.18.2)

xrandr --output XWAYLAND0 --off

However the included gnome settings dialog for the display configuration is working. A hint to a configuration file or a command line tool would be nice...

  • Could KMS or DRM be used for this? I've been searching but have yet to find any solution. I also need to be able to toggle a display without going trough the settings. – amfcosta Nov 17 '16 at 23:08
  • I think in the end i came up with a hacky solution through a dbus command line client... The link don_chrissi posted provided some hints about that. Maybe there is by now also a command line version available... – flammi88 Nov 17 '16 at 23:39
  • Could you share your solution? – Untitled Mar 5 '17 at 20:33
