My laptop has an HDMI port, and when I connect it to a TV, what shows on the laptop's display also shows on the TV. I'm not sure what the official term for that, but let's just call it "mirror" mode.

Is there a graphical (or CLI-based) configuration tool that lets me easily select different display settings, such as "laptop only", "external only", "extend", and "mirror"? It would be even better if it lets me easily change the display resolution as well. I'm using Fluxbox and would like to keep using it rather than replacing it with a different window manager or desktop.

I was aware that xrandr shows what the current screen resolution is, but I didn't know about its other features. I also liked simple graphical representation of arandr. Thanks everyone for taking time to respond.
