Including arandr layout settings in BLOB Configuration Manager

I think it would be a good idea include the arandr saved layout settings as well (if technically possible) in BLOB Themes Manager settings.

Of course, arandr layout isn't technically a theme, however including it with BLOB themes will offer a lot of practicality while switching monitors. With just one change from the theme manager, I can restore tint2, conky, wallpaper and screen layout preferences as well.

If we still have menu-entries in Litihum, how about renaming BLOB Theme Manager menu entry to BLOB Configuration Manager (which is the actual name) out of the box?

^Thanks for the suggestions!
We're still thinking about what configurations are appropriate for BLOB to handle, and possible additions, but what goes in with the Lithium release will also depend on how much dev time is available.

In principle any config files could be added to a BLOB set...

^ Good to hear that John. I know that you guys have been working a lot with the development. A simple thanks won't do justice, and yet, thank you.

Re: Including arandr layout settings in BLOB Configuration Manager

How straightforward would it be though? If settings are saved in .screenlayout and there is one script, and you know it has been run, then it would be easy enough. Otherwise how to tell if a screenlayout script has been used, and which one?
