Dear Debian folks,

I noticed that VGA toggling by using Fn + F5 is not working for me. I am using DebPkg:gdm3 to log into LXDE.

When the login of GDM 3 is shown Fn + F5 works. But when I am logged into LXDE it does not anymore. Somehow xrandr is failing.

	$ sh -x /etc/acpi/actions/vga-toggle.sh
	+ getvga_status
	+ xrandr -q
	No protocol specified
	Can't open display :0
	+ head -n1
	+ grep ^VGA
	+ echo
	+ cut -d   -f 2,3
	+ echo
	+ cut -d   -f 1
	+ echo
	+ VGA=
	+ cut -d   -f 1
	+ head -n1
	+ grep ^LVDS
	+ echo
	+ LVDS=
	+ return 2
	+ xrandr --output --off --output --auto
	No protocol specified
	Can't open display :0

Running `xrandr -q` from a LXTerminal works though.

Please tell me, if I need me to provide more information.
