When you connect upto a projector, for X to start sending data to your VGA port, run:

xrandr --auto

Use urxvt with a ~/.Xdefaults setup like so:

urxvt*font:      -*-terminus-medium-r-*-*-24-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
urxvt*boldFont:  -*-terminus-medium-r-*-*-24-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

So 24 sized font works. Defaults of a white background seem to work best too.

Colour scheme found to be optimal for a ~/.vimrc:

colors zellner
