Context English State
Four outputs were found: the built-in panel <literal>LVDS1</literal>, and external <literal>VGA1</literal>, <literal>HDMI1</literal>, and <literal>DP1</literal> connectors.
The projector has been connected to the <literal>VGA1</literal> output. <citerefentry vendor="xfree86"><refentrytitle>xrandr</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry> is now used to set that output to the native resolution of the projector and add the additional space to the right side of the desktop:
<prompt>%</prompt> <userinput>xrandr --output VGA1 --auto --right-of LVDS1</userinput>
<literal>--auto</literal> chooses the resolution and refresh rate detected by <acronym>EDID</acronym>. If the resolution is not correctly detected, a fixed value can be given with <literal>--mode</literal> instead of the <literal>--auto</literal> statement. For example, most projectors can be used with a 1024x768 resolution, which is set with <literal>--mode 1024x768</literal>.
<citerefentry vendor="xfree86"><refentrytitle>xrandr</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry> is often run from <filename>.xinitrc</filename> to set the appropriate mode when X starts.
Setting Monitor Resolution in a File
To set a screen resolution of 1024x768 in a configuration file:
Set Screen Resolution in a File
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Card0"
SubSection "Display"
Modes "1024x768"
The few monitors that do not have <acronym>EDID</acronym> can be configured by setting <literal>HorizSync</literal> and <literal>VertRefresh</literal> to the range of frequencies supported by the monitor.
Manually Setting Monitor Frequencies
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
HorizSync 30-83 # kHz
VertRefresh 50-76 # Hz

Keyboard Layout
The standardized location of keys on a keyboard is called a <emphasis>layout</emphasis>. Layouts and other adjustable parameters are listed in <citerefentry vendor="xfree86"><refentrytitle>xkeyboard-config</refentrytitle><manvolnum>7</manvolnum></citerefentry>.
A United States layout is the default. To select an alternate layout, set the <literal>XkbLayout</literal> and <literal>XkbVariant</literal> options in an <literal>InputClass</literal>. This will be applied to all input devices that match the class.
This example selects a French keyboard layout.

Setting Multiple Keyboard Layouts
Set United States, Spanish, and Ukrainian keyboard layouts. Cycle through these layouts by pressing <keycombo action="simul"> <keycap>Alt</keycap> <keycap>Shift</keycap> </keycombo>. <package>x11/xxkb</package> or <package>x11/sbxkb</package> can be used for improved layout switching control and current layout indicators.
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "All Keyboards"
MatchIsKeyboard "yes"
Option "XkbLayout" "us, es, ua"
Closing <application>Xorg</application> From the Keyboard
X can be closed with a combination of keys. By default, that key combination is not set because it conflicts with keyboard commands for some applications. Enabling this option requires changes to the keyboard <literal>InputDevice</literal> section:
