[Debian-eeepc-devel] Bug#500191: eeepc-acpi-scripts: VGA toggle does nothing

Package: eeepc-acpi-scripts
Version: 1.0.7
Severity: normal

I can manually su to root and run /etc/acpi/actions/vga-toggle.sh, and
it works, but Fn-F5 doesn't.

Some debugging showed that this is because xrandr is failing when
called that way, because DISPLAY is not set.  That makes sense; where
would it be set when acpid calls it?  Adding export DISPLAY=:0.0
didn't help, though; probably XAUTH issue?
