what is xorg.conf equivalent of xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --mode 1920x1200 --pos 0x0 --output DVI-I-2 --mode 1920x1080 --pos 1920x0
 
i have switched to the noveau drivers from nvidia binary drivers
and therefore my old xorg.conf for the dual monitor setup
with different dimensions of the 2 monitors
wont work as the nvidia drivers used a "Twinhead" stanza.

what should my xorg.conf look like for my nouveau drivers.

I am currently running

xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --mode 1920x1200 --pos 0x0 --output DVI-I-2 --mode 1920x1080 --pos 1920x0

which dynamically sets me up. what is the static stanza corresponding?

I don't know the answer to your specific question, but...
If you're running KDE you can set the default with KRandRTray which will
create ~/.kde/share/config/krandrrc containing:-

[Display]
ApplyOnStartup=true
StartupCommands=xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --mode 1920x1200 --pos 0x0
--output DVI-I-2 --mode 1920x1080 --pos 1920x0

It'll also creat the appropriate [screen_0] and [screen_1] entries.

I'd be surprised if GNOME and other DE's didn't have a similar tool.

If running GNOME put your settings in:-
/etc/gdm/Init/Default (check that - I haven't run GNOME for years)
below the $IFS line - see man xrandr and your search engine for syntax.

A non-DE way of achieving the same thing is to create:-
/etc/X11/Xsession.d/45custom_xrandr-settings

and put your settings there



Cheers
