Hi,

I am running i3 and have a 3 monitor setup, i have made a script file that contains the xrandr executable and parameters that work for my setup, if i execute the xrandr command in a terminal it works so i know the command is not at fault, however if i try and run it at i3 startup it does not work.

The script file i am using is ~/.screenlayout/screens.sh is shown below.

Code:

#!/bin/sh
xrandr --output DVI-D-0 --off --output HDMI-0 --off --output DP-5 --off --output DP-4 --primary --mode 1920x1080 --pos 1920x0 --rotate normal --output DP-3 --off --output DP-2 --mode 1920x1080 --pos 3840x0 --rotate normal --output DP-1 --off --output DP-0 --mode 1920x1080 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal


My i3 config below

Code:

#Font for window titles. Will also be used by the bar unless a different font
# is used in the bar {} block below.
font pango:Fantasque Sans Mono 8

# This font is widely installed, provides lots of unicode glyphs, right-to-left
# text rendering and scalability on retina/hidpi displays (thanks to pango).
font pango:DejaVu Sans Mono 8

# Before i3 v4.8, we used to recommend this one as the default:
# font -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--13-120-75-75-C-70-iso10646-1
# The font above is very space-efficient, that is, it looks good, sharp and
# clear in small sizes. However, its unicode glyph coverage is limited, the old
# X core fonts rendering does not support right-to-left and this being a bitmap
# font, it doesn’t scale on retina/hidpi displays.

Solved this by calling /usr/bin/xrandr instead of just xrandr, strange but it works now.

That solution suggests that $PATH is not set correctly when called from the window manager.
