use in combination with media/extra keys on my keyboard. Reading
the Arch Linux BBS yesterday I found an interesting script
called the "ThinkPad Presentation Manager" that offers a
quick selection for enabling external displays. Ideal for binding with
the Presentation key found on many laptops, and on
my TravelMate. Until
now I used a bunch of shell aliases to enable some commonly used
setups, like "tvon" for watching movies or "vgawine"
I liked the idea and find it to be a nicer solution than shell aliases, so I wrote my own with Python and pygtk. Pypres is a small utility for enabling external displays based on presets, intended to be used with the "Presentation" media button found on many laptops. Double-click on a preset or selecting one and pressing the OK button will invoke xrandr and exit. The code could also serve me as a good skeleton for quickly creating new small ListView/TreeView utilities in the future.
