Where is the nvidia-settings guide ?
 
The driver doc (chapter 24) says:

Quote:

For more information, see the nvidia-settings man page or the user guide available here: ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...user-guide.txt
The URL is wrong.
So where is it actually ?

In the man page. This has been the entire contents of nvidia-settings-user-guide.txt shipped with the driver for a long time:

The one on the FTP server was way out of date.

BTW, you can make a nice formatted version of the guide (or any man page, for that matter) by running
Code:

zcat /usr/share/man/man1/nvidia-settings.1.gz | groff -man | ps2pdf - nvidia-settings.pdf

I don't have anything to contribute, but wanted to say thanks for that unexpected and useful tip. :cool:

Thanks, Aaron.

Actually I'd like to get a list of attributes (nvidia-settings -q all) and the meaning of different values.
I know that some values have been explained in this forum but would be nice to have it as a single list.
So, is there any doc. for that ?

Re: Where is the nvidia-settings guide ?
 
nvidia-settings -e all. You can also get a short list with nvidia-settings -e list. You could also just look at the table in the source code: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~aplattn...rc/parse.c#n68
