Virtual Monitors setup with Xrandr

Post by Leviticus » Fri Jan 17, 2020 12:09 am

I saw this on Youtube, and it looked quite interesting, especially since you have been doing some scripts videos as of late, plus with 4k TV's getting cheaper, this would be a viable option of having a specialty multimonitor setup. Plus, there is very little information available or tutorials about this subject.

Didn't watch the entire video but I'm assuming this is about splitting up a very large monitor into "virtual monitors" so you can, for example, divide up your extra-wide monitor into two workspaces for you tiling window manager. This is something that TWM users often do when they have a single big screen. Honestly though, if you want multi-monitors then you should just buy multiple monitors. If you have 3-4 separate monitors, you can tilt the monitors which much easier on the eyes than large flat screen.
