Arandr starting at startup with multiple screens
« on: January 31, 2020, 10:09:46 am »
Ever wondered how to get all your screens booted in Peppermint? Well I have spent the afternoon trialing different solutions and made this tutorial for someone who asked in the forums.

Create a folder in hidden folders in your home directory pushing
Code: [Select]
Ctrl+H together will bring hidden folders up
Code: [Select]
Right Click empty space in home directory Left click Create New Folder
call it
Code: [Select]
The file you originally made in ARandr rename it to
Code: [Select]
Pop that
Code: [Select] into .xsessionrc folder you just created

Code: [Select]
Menu/Settings/Default applications for LXSession

When it opens left click
Code: [Select]
Then in the box next to Add type
Code: [Select]
.xsessionrc/ then left click add
After pushing Add it should look like this.

Finally reboot or logout and it should setup your screens.  ;) Also switching off monitors does not reset them back to mirror mode, it stays with  :D This has been a pleasure to work on.

Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)
