Adding arandr-0.1.9 here installed 10 packages (24MB) (on Stretch) and NAICT
works on a per user per DE/WM basis. Using xrandr "directly" (via text editor
and script) means both that discrete tweaks with a text editor are not obscured
in (one or more)(hidden) location(s) (deep?) in $HOME, and can be applied
globally, rather than needed by *each* user for *each* DE. Its man page is quite
terse, describing only two options not counting showversion and help.

All correct?

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
