Connecting remote display (projector) to i3ΒΆ

It turns out to be suprisingly easy randr and i3 are integrated well enough.

I have decided that I’ll add a workspace dedicated for projector.

i3.config snippet:

# switch to workspace
bindsym $mod+p workspace 11

bindsym $mod+Shift+p move container to workspace 11

workspace 11 output VGA-1

To enable display issue:

xrandr --output VGA-1 --auto --right-of LVDS-1

To disable:

xrandr --output VGA-1 --off
