Thanks for that info kdorf. Interestingly, I notice that .nvidia-settings-rc is found only under my root user account. Would you recommend copying that file to my regular user directory?
Also, there is no reference to scaling in that file. Should AaronP's suggestion below be inserted into the .nvidia-settings-rc configproperties section?
