’man xrandr’ gives me infos.

but starting xrandr in the shell says command was not found.

Does that mean that even man shows help infos for xrandr
xrandr is not installed?

or does it only show help infos if a package is installed?

This is interesting, I just tried this myself, with the same effect: `man xrandr` shows the manual but trying to run it (either as my user or with `sudo` returns with `command not found`.

In XFCE it is impossible to put my additonal monitor on top of the laptop.

The older X system is not great when it comes to "multi-head" setups.

I'm not an expert, but I respectfully disagree: I have been using XFCE for several years now - initially under Xubuntu on several systems, now under Guix on my laptop and under Debian on both of my work PCs.

All of them use multiple monitors. In fact, I'm writing this email on my monitor which is "on top of" my laptop screen at this very moment.

I'm using the default XFCE Display settings [0] to configure the relative positioning of my screens.


Kind regards,
