Ubuntu :: Nvidia X Not Saving Resolution Settings?

May 24, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu, 10.4

My problem is that when i log in, the resolution isnt what i want. So i change it via the Nvidia x server settings, and press Save to x config file

Yet when i log in again, it defaults back to what it was before i changed it?

Iv looked all over the internet for the past 2 days and nothing seems to work.

Ubuntu :: Nvidia-settings And Screen-resolution-extra ?

Jul 24, 2010

After installing some (much needed) upgrades, I am stuck being unable to install nvidia-settings after screen-resolution-extra upgraded from .11 to .13. Nvidia-settings, supposedly, requires .11. I can, of course, downgrade to .11, but I do not know if this is recommended. Is there anyway to get nvidia-settings back without downgrading? What is a good course of action?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Resolution 1920x1200 Not Available In Nvidia-settings?

Feb 5, 2011

I just bought a new 24inch monitor that supports the resolution 1920x1200. Unfortunately, the nvidia-settings dialog does not have this resolution as an option (currently running on 1920x1080). The graphics card is Geforce 6200 (should support the wanted resolution), and the monitor is connected with the VGA cable (if that matters).

Jun 9, 2010

i'm having a problem with nvidia-settings is that my resolution is not listed in. the only resolutions available are 640x480 and 320x240, the "detect display" doesn't work either.by the way i'm using the driver from nvidia site.other point is that i couldn't change resolution on kde before i installed the nvidia driver, it just showed the same two resolutions, i thought it was because i hadn't install the nvidia drivers but i got the same problem.

OpenSUSE Install :: Saving System Settings (yast Settings)

Apr 1, 2011

Is there a way I can save system settings and have yast revert to a config file in case I ever need to reinstall the system again? I hate having to configure the firewall, runlevels, samba shares, samba workgroup, apparmor, and all the other junk after every install. It's not like I install often, but should suse 11.5 or 12 roll out, I'd like it to be a snappy upgrade.

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Settings Manager "Custom" Resolution?

May 6, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu on and off for the past few years, however since the release of Ubuntu 10.04 I have decided to dedicate my Dell laptop to Ubuntu. Everything is up and running smoothly with one exception: my screen resolution. My graphics card is an NVidia Geforce Go 7300, and as such I am using the "NVidia accelerated graphics driver (version current)." Compiz is working properly and the only issue I'm having with this setup is that my screen resolution is way too large for me to be able to see it. The screen is a 15.4 inch and the native resolution of 1680x1050 is exceptionally difficult to read. In the NVidia settings I am looking for a resolution of 1280x800, a resolution which I have used before on this laptop in a different operating system, however the closest I can come without stretching the image is 1440x900. I have searched both this forum and google religiously in search of an answer to this problem - not just today, but many times in the past; once for each version of Ubuntu that was released. Each attempt mutilating the xorg.conf file in a different manner, yet all to no avail. I have spent a woeful amount of my life trying to fix this issue, however I have succumb to failure and futility each time. I am willing to try a vast number of things that I have not already attempted in order to fix this, as well as a few tried methods that I may have executed incorrectly; as I would like to have a readable screen with which to use my laptop. Below is the contents of my laptop's current xorg.conf file.

# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildd@palmer) Fri Apr 9 10:35:18 UTC 2010
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"

Ubuntu :: Appearance Settings Not Saving / Fix It?

Apr 29, 2010

I've installed Lucid, and so far the only problem I'm having repeatedly is that my appearance settings aren't saving. Every time I reboot I have to change the visual effects from "none" to "normal", whereupon it searches for drivers and changes the settings. Any ideas what could be causing this and how to fix it?

Ubuntu :: Gsynaptics Settings Not Saving?

May 4, 2010

I followed the instructions for installing Gsynaptics on 10.04 to configure my touchpad and it seems to be working. except, something seems to override my settings whenever I close Gsynaptics or after about 10-20 seconds has passed.

Mainly, all I'm trying to do with it is use it for a simple way for me to turn my touchpad on and off since it's overly sensitive and causing problems. Does anyone know why gsynaptic changes may not be sticking?

Ubuntu :: Saving All Of Settings In A Session?

Jun 17, 2010

I've been playing around with my gnome set up and getting it to look nice, but every time I log out, it messes itself up in just a couple of ways. I saved the session, but that doesn't appear to be catching everything. The problems I'm having -I disable trackpad clicking with "sudo trackpad notap", but I need to reenter this every time I log in or it's turned back on again.

No matter what I do to screenlets, I can't seem to get it to remember that I only want ONE picture frame on my desktop when I boot up, and only ONE CPU monitor. It instead boots up 2 and 3 respectively.I have set stickynote to open up automatically, but it never boots up to the screen, only the panel above. I then have to double click on it to get it to open.Is there a way to save not just the session but every setting you've got running currently on a Ubuntu machine, and then load them automatically when you boot?

Ubuntu :: Programs Not Saving Settings Unless Run As Root?

Aug 26, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit and I'm having the following issue: a lot of the programs I use seem not to be able to save their settings on shutdown (Visual Paradigm for UML, for example. Kile is another one). This happens only for some of my programs. What is causing this? Have I installed them in an inappropriate location? (e.g. VP is in /opt). I also have this problem sometimes with system settings (screensaver reverted to old value upon reboot once, but after that it worked...).

Edit: Just noticed running as root doesn't work either, I rebooted and it's back to square one

Ubuntu :: Settings Not Saving In System / Get That To Work?

Jun 28, 2011

Ok, let me explained what I did. I was curious and decided to try out Gnome 3. Big mistake. I did a purge to get rid of it and now Unity comes back up. So far so good. Now none of my settings save... my "keep in launcher" apps do not stay there, my settings (accounts work fine) in Empathy don't stay and the weather settings reset. How do I get things to save when logging out or rebooting?

Ubuntu Installation :: Saving Settings From A Previous Install?

May 24, 2010

Over the last two months I've been trying out Ubuntu 10.04 32bit using Wubi under my current Windows 7 32bit OS, and I'm at the point where I want to reformat and partition my HDD making Ubuntu my main OS (with a very small partition for Windows 7 on the side for certain things).I was just wondering if it is somehow possible to export all my current settings and preferences for my current installation of Ubuntu so that once I've reinstalled it, I can import them and everything will be the same as it is now (I hope that made sense...).I'm not too fussed about reinstalling apps and things, just all my current settings and preferences.Oh and also, (this might not be the place to ask, but I know you'll probably be able to answer this as well) is there anything I can use to do the same export/import process with my Windows 7

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Saving Alsamixer Volume Settings?

Apr 8, 2011

When i installed Ubuntu, everything worked fine, sound drivers installed automatically and volume was perfect.Then one day as I was talking to a friend on skype, I tried changing the output to speakers from my headset during the call and i didnt get any output. I tried changing a few settings, can't remember which ones exactly until I noticed someone had pulled the audio cable from the back of my PC. I replaced it but I started getting very very low sound.I found out about alsamixer and when I ran it, I found that the volume on that device was turned down, i turned it up and voila! sound back to normal.However, now when I reboot, my sound goes down again. I have tried deleting the asound.state file and running the save command, "sudo alsactl store 0" I think, as someone suggested, but no cigar.

Debian Multimedia :: Settings Were Not Saving Through Reboot

Sep 9, 2010

Initially, Debian detected my M-Audio soundcard right off, and things were going great, until I tried to get a Logitech webcam working. Got video going, but no audio, so I installed cheese, alsa-base and alsa-utils, and played around with settings according to copious forum threads dedicated to the problem of Linux and webcams, all to no avail. Then I had NO SOUND, until I did a alsa-conf, which detected and (re)set my M-Audio card, until reboot, then again, NO SOUND. Settings were not saving through reboot.

So I purge removed alsa-base and alsa-utils, hoping that things would magically revert to pre-webcam experiment. Still no sound. I have given up on the webcam idea; I'll use my XP Pro laptop for that. But I need sound on this Linux box. Oh and when I'm playing ....., etc. the soundcard itself is making chatter noises to the beat of the music. This soundcard was working perfectly before I started the webcam debacle, so it's not a hardware issue.

SUSE / Novell :: Saving The Screen Resolution?

Aug 4, 2010

I am running OpenSuse 11.3 in a MAC Parallels VM environment. It installed more smoothly than on actual hardware, but the screen resolution is 1024x672 so the screen is off. I have to blindly click in the corner to get the menus, so i changed it to 1024x640 now it looks great, but it doesn't stay. Every time i restart the VM, i have to set the resolution again. Is that a big or is there something I am missing?

General :: Saving User Account Settings When Reinstalling?

Jul 30, 2010

When I reinstall my distro (MEPIS, for the last 2.5 years), making my new user account preserve all the old account's settings has always been a difficult and very messy process, especially if I have installed a new copy on another partition. (I'm doing that soon, so I have this copy as a backup until I have everything the way I want it on the new copy.) Most of my stuff gets saved, but not everything. The biggest problem is that, even if I select "preserve data in /home" in the MEPIS installer, my keyboard shortcuts become unusable (not completely erased) under odd circumstances. They're still listed in file /home/josh/kde/share/config/khotkeysrc, but they still can't be used, and I have to open hhotkeysrc and manually delete them and then reenter them in the menu editor (the K menu, by the way, gets completely overwritten).

I can't just overwrite the entire new user account with the old one; I've tried, and something goes wrong so that the new account can't be opened (probably because some important files are inaccessible--I can't tell which ones they become inaccessible).Anyway, is there a program that can preserve all the user account settings neatly for a new installation of the distro? I am supposing there is a program or at least a method, because I never hear others complaining about this problem. I probably don't know something I should know.

OpenSUSE Install :: Control Center Not Saving Settings Upon Logout (11.3)

something odd I've noticed with 11.3 on my laptop--if I adjust my resolution through the Monitor applet in the Control Center or if I make changes to my Touchpad settings through the Control Center, the changes are lost when I log into my laptop. Do you think I botched an installation?

I've tried to determine what actual files are affected via the two applets with the thought that maybe I don't have the necessary permissions on them or that I can throw a bandaid on it with a start-up task to overwrite them. Alas, I've got nuthin'

Debian Installation :: Deb6, 'turn On' Nvidia Settings / Nvidia's Latest 270.xx With Squeeze?

Jun 9, 2011

Using online Debian guide, installed latest nvidia-current, glx etc which seems to be 195.xx Machine boots to GUI but monitor setting menu doesnt respond nor is there an nvidia specific one. xorg.conf shows 'nvidia' driver but I suspect I am still on 'nouveau' since the synapatic package manager doesn't show an nvidia xserver-xorg-video choice.

Second question, any trailheads for using wheezy based drivers (i.e. nvidia's latest 270.xx) with squeeze?

Ubuntu :: Screen Resolution Settings For Netbook?

Aug 15, 2011

I've got a Disney edition Asus EeePC with an xp/9.10 nbr dual boot.The 9" screen has a native resolution of 1024x600, but in xp it can expand that to 1024x768- either by scrolling the desktop up and down a bit, or by what they call "LCD Compress" mode, where ever thing gets squished vertically a bit to fit 768pixels of info in 600 pixels of space.

My daughter uses it to play games on webkinz.com, and their games pop up on a 800px high non resizable or scrollable window, so there are controls and junk that fall off the bottom that can't be reached unless I'm put it in one of the 768 pixel modes. That, and with her task bar set to auto hide, she can play games and have a good time. how do I set up Ubuntu 9.10 to do the same thing? Right now, the only screen resolution in Ubuntu is 1024x600.
