It seems that grandr has dependencies on Gnome libs. From the homepage: Grandr
is a GNOME Panel Applet that allow you to select screen resolution and
orientation from your GNOME Panel.

Another alternative is arandr. Depends only on Python and PyGTK. Perhaps a
little less refined, but works well here, in 2 notebooks with Xubuntu
