Package Request: dockd for Thinkpad laptops

#1 Post by WarhawkCZ » Mon Sep 24, 2018 2:36 pm

Using thinkpad laptops with a docking station and external screens may be problematic with xfce. The display manager simply does not remember the configuration. Every dock-in action requires a new LCD screens position configuration. I suggest adding dockd package (Git, Web) to the MX repo. This package detects the docking event and automatically sets the configuration.
Thanks for your consideration.
I use Google before asking dumb questions but I am new to Linux. Thank you for your patience :-)
