    The solution provided here sadly does not apply to the GTX 1080. – Luis Alvarado Nov 25 '16 at 7:27
nvidia-settings --assign GPULogoBrightness=0

All attributes can be found by nvidia-settings -q all

Refer to this post for starting it at boot

The solution I choosed is to put in my ~/.xinitrc according to this post you can do it by the following command echo "nvidia-settings --assign GPULogoBrightness=0" >> ~/.xinitrc if you want it systemwide put it into your /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

  • Any idea how to have it persist after reboot? – George Irimiciuc Apr 2 '16 at 19:36
  • @GeorgeIrimiciuc I'd recommend just adding it to startup. – rajlego Apr 23 '16 at 1:26
  • Put it in a script. Script works when called interactively, but when I put it into init.d and launch it with service then I get "Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused" – Nobody Aug 9 '16 at 21:44
  • @Nobody see the enhanced post... of course if your window manager is not launched you wont be able to run a command which requires an X server – Philippe Gachoud Jul 11 '17 at 7:30
  • Didn't work for me: MSI 1080ti, Ubuntu 18.04. – Apogentus Sep 14 '20 at 6:15
