I can't keep xrandr setting permanent as ~/.xprofile is not being read.
I can't make xrandr setting permanent.
I've created ~/.xprofile and, being root copy it to /etc/ and /etc/X11/xinit/. I've also appended xrandr setting in ~/.xinitrc but my slack14 suddenly stopped reading ~/.xprofile file.
The setting is xrandr -s 832x624 -r 75
It works only when I give it as a command.
P.S I tried here http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=707202 but couldn't
I have experienced the same frustration. I have even tried written a script and placed it at /etc/rc.d/rc4.d (or even ini.d/) folders hoping init to catch it before loading the login screen but probably I needed more readings to have it work.
Having no such time I conceded to do it the dirty way by adding the lines into the /etc/profile, a place where slackware habitually goes after login. If your system has none you may try create one /etc/profile and get the luck if it is read after login.
The login screen is a bit ugly but when X loads the resolution is corrected to a pretty one. I did not want to put it ~/ because I wanted other users to enjoy the same resolution after the login.
Hope that helps.
I have put xrandr setting in ~/.xprofile and, yes dropped a line in .bash_profile.
It's suddenly started working.
According to general opinions that are available on W3, xrandr should go on .xprofile and let all the users set/customize it accordingly.
