Switching Display profiles and panel profiles for multi screen

Beside the Panel profiles I've seen that latest xfce4-display-settings also offers profiles, very nice for not scripting manually with xrandr. But how can I switch the Panel profile and the Display profile by command or shortcut? Usually I need to switch both.

Moreover using Panel profiles this is quite confusing. I have done a layout and like to save with name. Now I have a new Filename "3externalScreens(Copy of Current Configuration)". I can't get rid of that () which is useless. Now changing the layout and saving again creates another Filename. Or do I rather need the Import/Export functions?

xfce4-panel-profiles can be run manually. For example:

xfce4-panel-profiles load /usr/share/xfce4-panel-profiles/layouts/Redmond.tar.bz2

...loads the Redmond profile. I've created and saved my own profile called "T" and can manually load it via:

xfce4-panel-profiles load ~/.local/share/xfce4-panel-profiles/T.tar.bz2

...note that custom saved configurations are stored in ~/.local/share/xfce4-panel-profiles.

The display settings configurations are saved in xfconf in the displays channel. Each configuration creates it's own unique identifier. you can see them using the xfce4-settings-editor in the display channel. There is also an /ActiveProfile setting that contains the current profile. So you could:

xfconf-query -c displays -p /ActiveProfile -s PROFILEID

...where PROFILEID is the unique ID generated for your system. I can't actually test this right now, but it should work.

So basically, a script that sets the desired display configuration then sets the correct panel configuration would be what you would need to create.

Moreover using Panel profiles this is quite confusing. I have done a layout and like to save with name. Now I have a new Filename "3externalScreens(Copy of Current Configuration)".

"(Copy of Current Configuration)" is just a display thing - it's not saved in the name of the profile.

Re: Switching Display profiles and panel profiles for multi screen

Thanks.
Right now I'm failing to save my current setup into a profile:

$ xfce4-panel-profiles  save "3screens"
KeyError('/plugins/plugin-38/arrow-position',)

Trying to save from the GUI I see:

$ xfce4-panel-profiles

How do I find the PROFILEID to set? I have created a profile named "3screens". Is this just the long id on top of this list?

Are you running the latest version, 1.0.8?

Its that big long string of characters ("799869481d49df227c3c7971d08dd65268158c9c"). Although, you seem to have created another one called "PROFILEID" as well. I'm not sure how you did that.

If you run in monitor mode:

xfconf-query -c displays -mv

...then use the GUI to create a new profile, you'll see the codes displayed in the terminal window.

Re: Switching Display profiles and panel profiles for multi screen

I probably did that by typing your command without replacing the PROFILEID and it did create it on the fly.
However that API is a bit uncomfortable, the 'xfconf-query -c displays --list' should somehow also reflect the name and setting a profile should also be possible by name instead of using the awful long unique id that is long enough to fill the harddisk with profiles smile .
But thanks, I got the idea how to do that.

Beside the Panel profiles I've seen that latest xfce4-display-settings also offers profiles, very nice for not scripting manually with xrandr. But how can I switch the Panel profile and the Display profile by command or shortcut? Usually I need to switch both.

can you specify what "latest" translates to?

$ ▶ xfce4-display-settings --version
xfce4-display-settings 4.12.1 (Xfce 4.12)

is mine and I do not see any option to save profiles for display settings

------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: Release Notes for 4.14 reveal the answer

The display dialog received a lot of attention during this cycle and a big feature: Users are now able to save and (automatically) restore complete multi-display configurations, which is especially helpful for those who frequently connect their laptop to varying docking stations or setups.

Re: Switching Display profiles and panel profiles for multi screen

4.15.x is the development branch. 4.14.x is the latest release branch. Some distros ship release versions only, others will ship development versions.

You can see the latest versions available here in the "Tags" section.
