Re: bash, xbindkeys and dual screen

You're probably right that the DISPLAY is always :0.0. You need another way to toggle between 0 and 1. Try this:

if [ ! -f $swfile ]; then echo 0 > $swfile ; fi
echo $(( ! `cat $swfile` )) > $swfile
echo exec switchscreen `cat $swfile`

Note that I just echo-ed the command because I don't have switchscreen installed. The $(( ... )) syntax allows you to evaluate mathematical expressions. Read "man bash"


Works perfectly! Thanks HTH :)
