I made shellscript /d/bats/xraa looking like the following:
sudo xrandr --output default --mode 1920x1080
Obviously, I modified sudoers to let user slitt run xrandr as root
without a password.
Then I added /d/bats/xraa to my .xinitrc as follows:
Now X always comes up as 1920x1080. Crude, but effective.
