autoload various twinview settings on X startup
Hey guys,

I have a laptop that I sometimes hookup to different monitors at different locations. Right now, every time I start X (I start X from the tty and have my load settings in ~/.xinitrc) if I want to connect to another monitor with twinview, i have to run nvidia-settings and config it. Is there anyway to automate this on X startup? to detect the display and config it for twinview automatically based on some setting I've put in previously?

Remember, this is a laptop that gets hooked up to different monitors depending on my location.

I saw something about putting "nvidia-settings --load-config-only &" into my .xinitrc ... dunno if that was the right direction.
