Any way to automatically switch twinview configuration?
 
Does the nvidia driver allow for hot-switching of twinview configuration based on plug-in event of the external monitor?

Would like to have it such that my laptop has a 1280x800 resolution if no monitor is plugged in but automatically switches to 2560x1024 when an external is plugged in.

Usually it's a user session daemon that asks the driver to change the mode upon receiving the event that a monitor as been (un)plugged.

The problem is that the nvidia driver doesn't implement the API that the usual daemons in GNOME, KDE, etc. are using to do just that which is XRandR >= 1.2 IIRC.

So, join your voice to the choir asking nvidia to implement that ;-)

Cheers,
Rui

Thanks. I understand, however, that one of the reasons xrandr 1.2 (and 1.3) support isn't implemented is because similar functionality is already offered by nvidia-settings et. al. (and has been since before xrandr 1.2 was even released. Is that true for the specific case here?
