I believe I have the code base pretty well modularized to make a Linux version easier. I'd have to expand the Java (low-level) System Hook dependency to support native Linux key events though, since it currently only supports Windows. This is what would take most of the time. Creating the libraries to apply the display settings in Linux wouldn't be too hard.
Great, perhaps all you need is calls to command line ddcutil and xrandr (etc)

That's one method of switching resolutions and display settings via cli.

If your code compiles under Linux when blanking-out your WIndows calls, then a Linux version might be easier than you expected.

Hello all!

I have updated the roadmap for the project on the GitHub and on the Display Hot Keys website. However, this update might take awhile because I am job searching at the moment. Once I secure a job as a software developer/ engineer, I'll be updating the project more regularly. Thank you everyone that has tried out my passion project! Hopefully you find the software useful! Stay tuned for more updates.
