    Default Monitors outside of resolution specification

    I have two monitors on a nVidia card. I managed to get a resolution that monitor 1 dose not like, thru GUI settings. In trying to fix it, I managed to get monitor 2 out also.

    I tried: cvt, 50-monitor.conf, xf86config, Sax2, xrandr



    Nothing's fixing it, or it's "fixing" the wrong monitor.

    I sort of got somewhere with Ctrl+Alt+F3 and later startx, but any settings will not stick.

    Right now, I've made a 2nd user. And I'm wondering if I'll just have to delete the 1st? And can I copy settings/apps from the 1st user without coping the screen rez?

    If it matters; Leap 15.2, KDE





    If anyone is wondering, the original problem is: I play Kerbel Space Program. I'm getting maybe 2fps, and was wondering if I decrease the rez of the 2 monitors, will I get better fps?

    You can remove unwanted KDE desktop display settings (per user) with
    Code:
    rm -rf ~/.local/share/kscreen/
    Log out and back in or restart the desktop to take effect.
    openSUSE Leap 15.2; KDE Plasma 5

    I still don't know how to mess with drivers and settings for the GPU. I think I'm still on the preinstalled drivers from openSUSE install.

    If it matters, I'm using a GEFORCE GTX 1050, 12 × Intel® Xeon® CPU X5650 @ 2.67GHz, 31.3 GiB of RAM
    System is a Dell Precision T7500

    Use Nvidia's proprietary drivers for Nvidia's chips.
    ILL you are using nouveau open drivers.
    Check it with inxi:

    Code:
    inxi -Gxxx
    Install inxi utility if you haven't: https://software.opensuse.org/packag...arch_term=inxi
