How can I install wlrandr?

Typing pamac search wlrandr yields no results. I’m using KDE on Wayland which is working great so far for the latest stable but at times my system fails to connect to my external monitor, so I need to do a bit of keyboard bashing (like I would on X11) to get it to connect. Not ideal, I know; but that’s how things go so far. I would like to know how I can install wlrandr (the wayland equivalent to xrandr) or a similar software to connect to a monitor via CLI on wayland.

Any tips would be great. Cheers!

The package is called wlr-randr and it’s in the AUR. :arrow_down:

pamac build wlr-randr

That’s something similar, but it’s not actually wlrandr. It was a merge request that never actually was merged and other things were done instead.

Cheers for tips you guys. Unfortunately, wlr-randr throws compositor doesn't support wlr-output-management-unstable-v1 when attempting to execute it. Not sure if KWin related or not though!
