Projects / GVidChanger-minimal


GVidChanger-minimal (gvidm) is a GTK app to quickly and easily change video resolutions in X. Running it will pop up a list of available modes; upon choosing a mode or cancelling, it exits. If you are running dual or multi-head displays, it will give you a list of screens so you can select the appropriate one. You can also specify on the command line a mode to switch to immediately, or a list of modes to choose from.

      Release Notes: When multiple screens are used, the top level screen selection menu isn't shown unless it's really needed. If a mode specification doesn't include a screen number, it uses the current screen rather than screen 0. The "cur" keyword was added for screen specification.
