Use XRandR to change the display configruation on the fly. Personally I
prefer using the command line tool "xrandr", as it allows performing a
whole bunch of configurations settings in a single step, whereas using
the GUI tools like "grandr" requires one to perform multiple steps, and
also are limited in functionality.
