Ubuntu :: Want To Nvidia X Server Settings?

Jan 13, 2011

I plugged the usual 4-pin s-video cable into my TV and graphics card. I went to nvidia x server settings, nothing. I hit detect monitors, nothing. I changed the TV to the proper input channel, Nothing. It's a bit annoying,I used it with the old GeForce Ti4200.

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Settings - X Server ?

Jul 19, 2010

How do I do this? You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia X Server Settings Gui Won't Save

Jan 31, 2011

I have 2 monitors, a 22 inch samsung as my main and an acer as my alt. I am trying to get the samsung monitor to display, but is is disabled. So I enable it as a separate x display, then save, but when I restart x, the settings didn't save. I save the config under under /etc/X11/xorg.conf. What am I doing wrong?

Ubuntu :: Missing Graphics Card In Nvidia X Server Settings?

Sep 1, 2010

I have ubuntu 10.4 32 bit. I have 2x gtx 285's in sli that work perfectly fine in sli in windows (so its not a hardware not properly physically installed issue). But in ubuntu in the x server settings only one of the cards shows up. I was wondering if this is a 32 bit issue as in the past running 64 bit they have both shown up fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Changing Display Configuration In NVIDIA X Server Settings?

Feb 23, 2010

I have a Dell E6500 laptop (1280x800 screen), which I frequently dock.The dock as two Dell 1908FP 20" monitors connected by DVI. I can move between the laptop display and the twins by manually changing display configuration in NVIDIA X Server settings, but this is a pain requiring about 15 clicks each time.

I have tried using the "Save to X Configuration File" option in the Nvidia server settings, but this seems to screw everything up. I need to dynamically change between the setups... anyone have advice on getting that done?Can the xorg.conf file be configured to do it?My xorg.conf looks like this:

Section "Screen"
Identifier"Default Screen"
DefaultDepth24[code]......

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 Multimedia :: Use "Separate X Server" Setting In Nvidia-settings?

Sep 16, 2010

In nvidia-settings I see, alongwith Disabled and TwinView settings, "Separate X Server". I tried choosing the option for my LCD (connected via HDMI), but I get a blank screen, presumably since the LCD's X server has nothing to render.

How do I direct any application (say vlc) to use that X Server instead of the Monitor's X server?

Ubuntu :: Getting Nvidia X Server Settings To "Stick"

May 10, 2010

Not sure if this is the right forum for Linux Mint but I heard it is based on Ubuntu so I figured it might be ok. Let me know if I'm wrong. I'm having trouble getting the X server settings to stay when using the Nvidia X configuration tool on Linux Mint 9.10. Everytime I try to save to xorg.conf it gives me "Failed to parse existing X config file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'!" even when using the sudo command.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: "apply" Button Grayed Out "nvidia X Server Settings?

Apr 8, 2011

Still pretty new to this, from what i have read, the more info i give the better, I am running ubuntu 11.04 with KDE installed via the terminal. I was trying to get my TV to work as another display, I don't know what I have done, after my earlier problems I have learnt to back up and restore my xorg.conf file but with no luck, I now can't change any settings as the title says the apply button is grayed out and when i try and save it to the xorg.conf file and restart the xserver it says that "Your current changes to the X server display configuration may no longer be applied due to changes made to the running X server.

You may either reload the current X server settings and lose any configuration setup in this page, or select "Cancel" and save your changes to the X configuration file (requires restarting X to take effect.)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia-settings. Res No Higher Than 640?

Jun 30, 2010

I'm running dual-screen. On 24" at 1920x1080 and one 19" at 1440x900. After installing Mint 9 I can't set the resolution any higher than 640x480 in nvidia-settings. I've installed the "recommended" nvidia-driver that Mint suggests.

[Code]...

What could be the problem? Why can't I set the res higher than 640 in nvidia-settings? Everything worked in Mint 8 (10.04). During installation the res was higher than 640.

Red Hat / Fedora :: 13 - KDE - NVidia Settings ?

I believe the Nvidia drivers were installed by default.. as I run the command:

I get:

However, when I do nvidia-settings, I get "command not found".

How do I see if the proprietary Nvidia drivers are installed?

Also, with GNome (on Ubuntu for sure), I can see a GUI tool to configure my NVidia settings.. how do I access this tool with KDE?

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 :: Gdm Interfering With Nvidia-settings Additional Screens?

Nov 2, 2010

after many a tear I just by sheer chance found out that, when logging in to my gnome-session (or any session really) from kdm I can do something that has eluded me for quite a while now: change screen-configuration between 1 screen and 2 screens as I please without having to log out, shutdown x, copy xorg.conf I need, restart x, log back in.

So question is: what could it possibly be, that makes GDM break a feature like this for the nvidia-settings dialog? Can anyone confirm this? *wants that error and shoot it in the face... er... code!* I still don't feel like reinstalling the whole thing, just to find out if this is due to this system being... well... OLD. Also call me a bit oldschool, but reinstalling is just lame.

*edit* me dumbass:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run
2.6.35-23-generic-pae

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).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Detect TV In NVidia-settings With Xorg-config

Feb 14, 2010

I have connected my computer to my LCD-TV (HDMI-cable) to enjoy my movies and such, on a big screen. I have nVidia GeForce 7050 so in nvidia-settings I've been using the TwinView configuration which allows me to see both the monitor and the TV.

There was a bit of trouble-shooting but it worked just fine until yesterday when I changed my monitor to a new one and on the way probably messed up in nvidia-settings. I thought it would be easy to fix it but the configuration (in nvidia-settings) is stuck on "separete x-screen" and doesn't allow any changes at all. When I hit the "Detect display" nothing happens although I have the TV connected!

Maybe my xorg.config could tell somebody what is wrong. I've been messing around with the file and made lots of changes acc to different advices but I really don't understand the options and settings so I'm afraid I'll soon do something inreperable.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 3D Settings - Intel - Botched With NVidia Driver

Jun 19, 2011

Yesterday I played a little with a Bitcoin miner and discovered today that I must have scambled my 3D settings. My Intel graphics card doesn't seem to work, instead I must have added a nVidia Settings Manager to my menu.

I already removed the package I mistakenly installed (something concerning OpenCL) but nothing happens. The xorg.conf file seems to be okay.

Gnome now only starts in 2D mode and Unity refuses to work at all. how I might get my Intel card back working?

Debian :: Why Won't NVIDIA Settings Save On Boot

Jan 4, 2016

I'm on a 64-bit machine running Debian 8.2 "Jessie" with MATE Desktop Environment.

I have a Geforce GTX 650ti video card.

I'm logged in as a non-superuser account named "john."

I open NVIDIA X Server Settings GUI, change my monitors' brightness from 0.000 to -0.1, go to the "nvidia-settings Configuration" section, click "Save Current Configuration" and click "Quit."

But when I reboot, the brightness is back at 0.000.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Nvidia-settings Won't Install From Rpm

Jul 19, 2010

I am extremely disappointed in this 11.3 release. openSUSE had a system that worked. I never had a major problem with the Nvidea video drivers before this release. When I did have a problem with the drivers (usually because Nvidia screwed up) I was able to easily use "The hard way" to install the drivers and all was good. But now the system is so screwed up that the drivers wont install. I can't find a working Saxx2 anywhere. nvidia-settings won't install from rpm. What the hell is going on? This release should have been held up until this garbage was fixed. Novvaeu (sp?) won't work for some of the programs I want to run.

I probably changed so much stuff that I bet my system won't boot now. Oh and what happened to the lack of repair software on the install disk? For two versions now the only repair option we have had is the command line. That's great if you use those tools on a regular or semi regular basis.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVIDIA XServer Settings - Black Screen Of Death

Dec 11, 2010

I had Ubuntu 10.04 running fine. Then I got curious about NVIDIA XServer.

"ATI Technologies Inc RV380 [Radeon X600 (PCIE)]" - Video Card

I opened it up, clicked a settings change, and said OK.
It said you need to update your blah blah blah.
Then it said blah blah blah doesn't exist.
Then it said it would create it for me.
Then I said REBOOT!

Now I get a black screen of death.

The only way I can get anything to happen on my monitor that comes from this computer is to boot into the Install Disk and say "TRY UBUNTU".

Fedora :: Brightness Settings Not Working Nvidia Driver

Feb 20, 2010

To use games and other intensive applications, but with the switch I completely lost control of the brightness for the monitor. Is their a way to configure that, through the terminal or external application. If not, is there an experimental 3d version of nouveau I could try. Help would be appreciated, everything else works great so far.
