Default Re: Slow AA text rendering in KDE

i agree with what #170 said. you don't need sudo stuff.

just nvidia-setting directly, and yes, it will take effect right after that command.

I have that and the initialpixmapplacement set in my .xinitrc file as follows:
sudo nvidia-settings -a InitialPixmapPlacement=2 &
sudo nvidia-settings -a GlyphCache=1 &
sleep 1
sudo nvidia-settings --load-config-only &
will these settings take effect immediately? even if set after the X server is already running?
is there a way to make these settings more permanent? (.nvidia-settings-rc maybe?)

I'm just not sure because I've not really noticed much difference, then again I am using urxvt as my terminal with sub-pixel (and AA) fonts... so the problem may lie in urxvt and not with the nvidia drivers
