Ubuntu :: Won't Save Monitor Settings Upon Reboot / Sort It?
May 4, 2011
So I have a fresh updated install of 10.10 on dell dimension 4550
The pc connects to my monitor through a dlink KVM switch so I can switch back and forth between computers.
When I reboot my monitor settings disapear and everything is real real large.
If i disconnect from the KVM and connect Ubuntu directly to the monitor and detect monitor it will allow me to adjust settings so everything looks normal. Until I reboot and I am back to the same huge icons again. If I try to go back and adjust monitor settings there are only 2 settings options because it does not see my monitor through the kvm switch again.
I have an external monitor at work, but not at home. I take my laptop home and when I come back the settings are off. My monitor is above my laptop, so I have to rearrage displays and save every time its plugged in. Isn't there a system file or something somewhere that I can write to and save the current state as the default?
Config a CentOS iptables.I issued some iptables rules.the rules were effective at once.Then, I came with a "iptables-save", but the "/etc/sysconfig/iptables" file hasn't been updated, it still loads the defaults rules with CentOS after reboot.
I am running a debian squeeze machine on a ibm t40 laptop with window maker as my window manager. I am using gpointing-device-settings as a program to get the scroll bar on my touch pad working. unfortunately, I can't get the settings to stick after i shutdown and turn on. I have to go into the program and unclick then reclick the button. i'm using version 1.3.2 (ive tried both deb and source versions). does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? and if there is any configure files that I could configure instead of having to use the gui program.
Currently I have two 1920x1080 screens running in Twinview on my Geforce 275 graphics card. Want I want to do is a quick simple way of disabling my secondary monitor when playing video games or using xbmc to watch movies, etc. I've tried a few applets but they require the xandr function which I think Nvidia doesn't support.
Is there a way to disable this quickly other than loading up nvidia-settings and disabling the monitor everytime. I don't really want to use two seperate x sessions and xinerama due to the fact you can't use compositing.
I could not save all of my OpenOffice document .odt files to exterior USB drive. I am using openSUSE 10.2 that runs well with my old Toshiba Satellite laptop on KDE. I did tried almost everything in it but could not.
I found that setting the video output module to opengl works very well. The only problem now is that vlc keeps changing my setting back to "default" rather that "opengl" or "x11".How do I force it to save my settings?
how I can save xinput settings? I'm running Peppermint Linux on an eeepc 701.After a few weeks, I've finally figured out which settings to configure with the xinput command to get my touchscreen working correctly. However, when restart the netbook all the settings are lost and I have to reconfigure each time. I've found threads saying to save settings in xorg.conf file, but apparently my system doesn't have this file.
I am using ubuntu 10.04.I have installed animated desktop using xwinwrap..Each time loging my animated desktop not available and have to setup again.Sky doom picture setup by ccsm also not available and have to setup.Every time i loging to my gnome desktop i have to configure them.Is there any way to save this settings before logout.
I am experiencing a similar problem as this thread but I do not use the fusion-icon.[URL].. Compiz will not save custom settings when compiz-settings-manager is used. It will save setting thru "Simple-settings-manager". In addition, some settings will not take effect immediately. Example: The "viewport switcher" in "Desktop-wall". Color changes will not take effect unless I change the "preview scale".Quote:

my whole system crashed due to file system failure so i have to reinstall it, but i would like to save my pidgin history and settings if possible. can anybody tell me, where i can find that. i can access my files trough a live cd via terminal. in which file/directory are the settings and the history stored?? i was looking thorugh the forum but i couldn find this information anywhere.
I was reading a FAQ on Fedora and it states that there is a way that I can Log Out and most importantly for me "Save Settings". Well I selected my user name in the upper right hand corner and selected Quit and then Log Out but I was never asked to "Save Settings". Where can I find this "Save Settings" thing when I log out?
Anyone knows how to save the currently workspace settings on my desktop when logout/reboot/shutdown the old setting will resume? Currently, i have configured the multiple xterm sessions and placed them in each corner of workspace on dual monitors, but after the system rebooted the xterm sessions are resumed, but they display on one monitor instead of two monitor and overlapped each other. I followed to save the desktop setting at in the "startup Applications preferencesemember currently runnign application". This would not work as i wish. Littlery, i want each xterm session reopen and place in each corner of workspace
I have a gentoo distribution and need to store the information of dmesg collected until a system crash. At present, after a reboot or a crash the information in dmesg are lost and are not available at the next reboot. How can I save all the information in dmesg until a crash and read them after the succeed reboot?I also checked for dmesg.x files in /var/log or similar files but with no success.
I am having a Xen server xend daemon is taking care of giving interface names like vif1.0 or vif0.2 to the connected guest operating systems on it.I can not save the current IPTABLE rules since upon reboot the xend daemon gives different names to virtual ethernet interfaces i.e. vif1.0 or vif3.0 or vif9.0 like that.I have some rules that I want to be active upon subsequent reboots and not all.Say for example an SSH to external server at port 8000 should forward the request to a machine on LAN.Which I have done by port forwarding from IPTABLES.So I need to save some rules.I was thinking to make a script which on reboot activates those rules.
I am not clear on where to do that.I came across internet and found /etc/network/if-up.d/I am not clear with this directory my question is if I make a scrip which has IPTABLE rules as I want and save it in above folder will it work. I am not clear with what is /etc/network/if-up.dfor.Suppose my logic is wrong then how should I go for it.Also I want to know does a protocol uses two port to make a connection.I have forgotten that thing,i.e if I run an SMTP or ssh then do they use port 22 and 23 both in case of ssh or 25 and 26 both for SMTP like that or just specifying the rules for one port will be enough.I tested these rules in a secure environment where i had disabled firewall and ssh forwarding on router worked well
i am trying to install ubuntu 9.04 on quite a few computers. all the computers need the same applications that i already have, as well as settings such as panel shortcuts and color schemes. there are no files like music or pictures, just applications already installed. i have all this on a bootable flash drive. all settings are saved. if i install from the flash drive will the settings transfer to the computer i am installing it on? if not, is there another way to copy all settings and apps or do i have to manually install everything on each computer?
I've installed the latest version of Ubuntu on one of my systems. I need to wipe it out and replace it with another OS for testing. After a week or so I'll reinstall Ubuntu.I've customized the looks and feel of Ubuntu desktop and have changed many other settings at a number of places. Is there a way so I can save my settings (like the desktop background, the screen saver settings, colors, terminal window settings including its fonts etc., and others) in a file or a set of files which can then be imported directly when I'd reinstall Ubuntu?
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?
I just installed Kubuntu 10.10 on my Inspiron 1011, working great except it will not save my aspect ratio settings, I have it plugged into a 19 inch monitor, I have set the monitor at 1440X900 and disabled the built in monitor, but no matter how many times I correct it, when I log in both displays are on and set to 800X600. How do I make the settings stick?
1. a builtin (broken) 2. an HDMI on my graphics board 3. a USB audio device (i am using this one)
I normally shut off the system each night. Next day, I have to go through the pulse-audio mixer and re-set all of the audio settings. They are apparently not being saved. I've searched the forum for 'save audio' and similar terms but no joy.
