Modifying refresh rates with ARandR

Hi all.

I have been wanting to change the refresh rate of an external monitor I use. Reading this "issue" on GitLab regarding such a thing, it seems like there is currently no ability. I know xrandr can supposedly be used to modify displays (and accordingly, their refresh rates too,) but I have no idea what the commands to that would be.

Re: Modifying refresh rates with ARandR

arandr is a gui frontend for xrandr.

but I have no idea what the commands to that would be.

Usage is here:

xrandr --help


man xrandr

You want to use the --rate or --refresh switches. The command (depending on your particular system) will be something like this example:

xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1920x1080 --rate 60

If this is successful then you can make it permanent by adding the command to .config/bunsen/autostart

Lots more information online eg xrandr - Arch Wiki

NB Use man <command> or <command> --help as a first step to find solutions wink
