This article suggests putting the xrandr line in the ~/.xprofile
(the other methods are admin-level config), with the drawback that
"it occurs fairly late in the start‐up process, so you'll see some
resolution resizing during the initial screen draw; in some cases
panel windows may resize improperly as a result."

I haven't tried, but using the .xsession instead avoids this problem.
Note: I think the window manager or desktop environment needs to be
started from the .xsession (at least, this is what I do). This should
also work when starting X from the command line with "startx" (this
was working in the past, but I haven't tried since a long time).
