Thread: Nvdia X Server Settings doesn't save settings

    Question Nvdia X Server Settings doesn't save settings

    Nvdia X Server Settings doesn't save my configured settings. The biggest issue is that my 144 Hz monitor starts at 60 Hz on every boot and the power profile is set to "adaptive". Applied settings are valid until I reboot.
    The program didn't allow me to save ("save to X configuration file") the changes and informed me that I have to be root, so I ran a command:
    Code:
    gnomesu nvidia-settings
    . Now I was able to press "save", but the settings aren't applied after a reboot and everything is resetted back to defaults.

    I found the same trouble but sorted it by logging in as root and
    configuring the system there and then saving the settings to the
    X-configuration file. In root, the file comes up as
    "/etc/X11/xorg.conf". It's probably preferable, but I don't know if
    it's possible, to do this from your home session; perhaps it will ask
    for a root password - I haven't tried it.

    You should never log to a GUI as root. In a konsole become root with su then run nviida-settings from command line. it will then allow you to save xorg. settings.

    That seems to work for now, also my older configurations appeared. Let's hope that the settings are applied on boot.

    The settings didn't stick after a reboot.

    Then check the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file

    It should hold your changes. If not are you actually saving it? The save button is on the X Server Display Configuration screen and you must be root and you must write it to /etc/X11/ directory

    Note that the desktop also has graphic setting and they will over ride any xorg settings.

    Default AW: Nvdia X Server Settings doesn't save settings

    /etc/X11/xorg.conf is not needed, try nvidia-settings as root (su -) and do not save but apply.

    That's what I've always done. Doesn't work.

    What settings are you changing you never said??

    Some settings may require mod to xorg.conf Also your GUI desktop may require changes since it may override any change you make. Depending on what you change.
