I'm seeing a lot of people having issues of when changing brightness/contrast/gamma through nvidia settings and the settings not loading the next time they log in. I am also having this problem.
I have a feeling the file is being read because for a split second after logging in, before the shell has loaded, the settings are applied, then the settings are reverted and the shell finishes loading.
Then like, everybody else having trouble getting the settings to stick, I open the gui or stick the commands in terminal and the settings are applied no probs.
- Card: Nvidia 9600 GS
- Driver: 331.20
- Distro: Ubuntu 12.04
- Gnome Shell: 3.4.1
What I've tried:
- opening nvidia-settings as root and user
- saving .nvidia-settings.rc in root and user folder in case of conflicts
- changing the startup application from --load-config-only to -l
- adding another startup application at the end of the list (including hidden items)
- removing the hostname from the file
- adding a 0: before the the settings
- deleting and regenerating file
- deleting and regenerating Xorg.conf
- moving .nvidia-settings.rc to /etc/X11/.
Here is my .nvidia-settings.rc....
