For me with the latest drivers I put the files there manually and tyhe control panel ran one time. Worked I set the vsync on and then the next time I tried it it fualted out
The program 'nvidia-settings' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
(Details: serial 32 error_code 2 request_code 146 minor_code 3)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
Whats with this.
There are seldom technogical answeres for behavioral problems.
