    It’s possible to let the system run your screenlayout from the start by adding it to the ~/.desktop-session/startup file like this
    $HOME/.screenlayout/default.sh &

    If you need the setup to be conditional for when the external monitor is connected, I posted code to do that in this thread:

    Had searched web after posting and was able to set the external monitor as default.

    Will try caprea’s tip sometime today and see how it goes.
