need 1280x1024 resolution, nvidia-auto-select thinks otherwise
Attempts to set 1280x1024 via xorg.conf are ignored and looks like at the end of Xorg.0.log nvidia-auto-select is getting set. Anyway, despite what it says, the resulting res is always 1024x768 and I have to set 1280x1024 manually in nvidia settings after each reboot. I've done the preview option in nvidia-settings and pasted the data into my xorg.conf and still not having any luck. I'm wondering if its acting like this because of the inability to access EDID information.

Re: need 1280x1024 resolution, nvidia-auto-select thinks otherwise
Finally figured it out. I feel somewhat guilty for blaming it all on nvidia-auto-select but then again its caused me enough hell anyway. I created a new user and had no issue with getting the resolution I wanted.
Going back to the old user home dir, I finally found a ~/.config/monitors.xml upon which I decided to rename the parent dir .config and voila no more problems.
Without searching I'm guessing this dir may be a local configuration repo for compiz? Anyway maybe someone else will benefit from my troubles.
