- X Resize and Rotate library
The RandR 1.2 extension first appeared in Xserver 1.3. It provides automatic discovery of modes (resolutions, refresh rates, ...) together with the ability to configure outputs dynamically (resize, rotate, move, ...)
Components that depend on libXRandR:
IRC - irc.freenode.net #xorg, #xorg-devel
Mailing List (Like many other X.org packages)
In addition to the RandR X protocol, an official configuration utility (named
xrandr) is maintained in the freedesktop git repository.
