Thread: nvidia settings not loading on startup

  1. #1

    Default nvidia settings not loading on startup

    Hello.

    I've searched a lot regarding the problem with nvidia-settings not saving settings. Although I do not have a problem with those settings which require root access (resolution etc..). I cannot get it to load the color calibration settings. It saves the settings in the nvidiasettingsrc file, I have checked that - but to load it on start up, I even created the following script to no avail:


    #!/bin/bash nvidia-settings -l
    as discussed here: Load nvidia-settings at startup? - Ubuntu Forums

    I saved the above script file in ~/.kde4/autostart directory and made it executable.

    Also I tried 'nvidia-settings --load-config-only' and replaced the above script file but still no success.

    What am I doing wrong?



    Thanks.

    Welcome here.

    But first things first What version of openSUSE are you using?
    From your post I guess you are using KDE, but it never bad to mention this with your openSUSE version (and all other information you think that could others help in helping you) whenever you start a help question thread.

    Oh yes, one thing we like very much is that you use CODE tags around any computer text you post using the # button from the tool bar in the post editor.

    Now we have to guess if the new line is missing in your script or not. In any case the layout should be
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    nvidia-settings -l
    else it will do almost nothing.

    Hi
    Try this option in the terminal if it work add the "-n" in your launcher
    Code:
    nvidia-settings -n
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    My apologies

    I'm using openSUSE 12.2. I tried

    Code:
    nvidia-settings -n
    but that did not work either

    Did you by any chance run nvidia-xconfig as root, or put in another way, does /etc/X11/xorg.conf exist?

    I checked that after installing the geforce driver, it did not exist. I created one...so yes it is there...

    Please open a terminal window, start nvidia-settings from there and post output here
    Code:
    nvidia-settings
    I'd also like to see
    Code:
    ls -l /etc/X11

    This gives no output at all.
