Default GeForce 6150LE -Ubuntu 9.04 GNOME changes resolution set by xorg.conf

Upon booting the screen resolution is OK (as witness the size of the arrow cursor during bootup). This would mean to me that NVIDIA configured the resolution as it should have. But once GNOME starts, it reduces the resolution. I then have to set it up right using NVIDIA config. But as soon as I reboot, the same thing repeats. Can I configure GNOME to set the resolution right. Where would I do that. (Rather newbee)

Technically it shouldn't happen but as a stop gap measure, add an entry in system>startup applications and the command would be nvidia-settings --load-config-only and reboot and see if that works out.

I think I figured out how to do that. I did, and it didn't work. Came back to same old resolution. Perhaps I needed to give a location for the nvidia-settings? something like /.../... I don't know. But I don't know where the nvidia-settings are.

Type nvidia-settings in your terminal and it should bring up the applet.

Same problem here. I think it's a bug. Settings in nvidia-settings don't fix it here either. I can C-A-Bs to restart the x-server and it will come up the correct resolution.

I guess it's just gnome being gnome.

Gnome has a display settings applet that remembers the last resolution you set through it and tries to reapply it when you log in. I don't know where it stores that setting, but you could probably find it and delete it.

Finally, someone posted a solution to my problem.
That was to add 'xrandr -s 1280x800' (for me it was 1920x1080) to the startup list.
This works. Thank you very much.
