    login as user
    then go su and enter your password

    now run

    forgive my ignorance.

    But when i hit ctrl+alt+f1 and go into init3 and back into init5 it kicks all my settings out
    So if i understand you correctly, and i do that but dont go back into init5 and do the sax2 -r my settings will stick?

    we need to be init3, totally out of X to run sax2 -r

    I'm not saying it will work for sure, what graphics device do you have

    Ah - I think i see whats happening.

    If I go into my x configuration utility manager "Configure X 11 system" - It tells me the complete wrong information (just like the xorg.conf file does)

    BUT, if I go into Nvidia configuration manager and select 'save to xorg.conf' -> and i click save. It tells me it cannot overwrite it.

    So, i'm guessing I need to figure out how to take the file I just saved on my deskto - the correct xorg.conf, and copy it into the etc/x11/ folder.

    Does that make sense?
    I'm even wondering if that would work..

    Any ideas?
    Still want me to post the two xorg.conf files?

    Thanks,
    -Matt

    Got it,

    What I did was run nvidia-settings as root via alt+f2.
    Then once in there it would let me save the xorg.conf file

    So, now when i reboot i have all my settings for display. But display only.

    How do I save the check box for desktop effects? I have to recheck the box on every x restart or reboot. Same with compiz as well...

    What you think?
