OK, I've tested randr-1.2 tool. Basically, can I set output to non-connected
device? E.g., can I turn on clone without attached external LCD projector and
just plug it and have the screen?
And some observations. I have laptop with 1280x800 LFP. I've plugged external
LCD via D-SUB cable (i.e., VGA) that is cappable of 1280x1024 and some other
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 240, current 1280 x 800, maximum 1280 x 800
VGA connected 1024x768+0+0 338mm x 270mm
1024x768 75.1* 70.1 60.0
800x600 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2
640x480 75.0 72.8 66.7 60.0
LVDS connected 1280x800+0+0 0mm x 0mm
1024x768 85.0 75.0 70.1 60.0
800x600 85.1 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2
640x480 85.0 72.8 75.0 59.9
Why VGA does not contain 1280x1024 mode?
xrandr --output VGA --mode 1024x768
sets clone on external LCD, good.
This next command
causes legacy randr aware applications to think LFP is only 1024x768 :(
