I'm using Nvidia 7300 gt and monitor-Acer V173w, on 64 bit Ubuntu 10.04. Compiz and Emerald went well, but at the time of entry into the GUI, I always receive the message :
"Could not apply the stored configuration for the monitor, could not find a suitable configuration of screens"

Why do I always receive it, and what is wrong with the monitor configuration or pci-e is used?

Remove ~/.config/monitors.xml.

Removing ~/.config/monitors.xml resolved the error I was getting when logging into my account.
