I'm running Ubuntu 13.10 and am having trouble with
nvidia-settings. I've got two monitors and two Gtx 560tis running SLI. I plugged both monitors into one card and when I run
sudo I can change the monitor rotations, positions etc and save and it works. However, rebooting I lose all my changes.
I did a bit of research and found I have to tell
nvidia-settings to save to the X config file. I tried finding the existing
xorg.conf.d and found nothing on my computer.
If I save in
/etc/X11/xorg.conf(.d) when I boot up I get an error saying there is something wrong with my graphics card or with my X settings. I have to access the shell and delete the file and reboot.
if I save in
/usr/share/X11/20-nvidia.conf XORG crashes at boot but renames the file to a
.backup and is able to recover (with none of my settings saved). The crash report includes
Xorg crashed with SIGABRT in OsAbort() .proc.driver.nvidia.gpus.0 Error:[Errno 21] Is A directory:'/proc/driver/nvidia/gpus/o' .proc.driver.nvidia.gpus.1 Error:[Errno 21] Is A directory:'/proc/driver/nvidia/gpus/1'
Am I doing something wrong or does this sound like a bug in the driver/settings panel (I've found a few of those logged).
