This utility is really great. I have a question though. My idle temps are around 72C! (thats 162 farenheit!) on my 6800 gt. In windows xp it idles in the mid to high 40's C. Is the program reading the sensor wrong?

this is amazing first off. the only feature i would like to see added is tv out as cloned or as another desktop. this in my opinion would complete the control panel.

Default Feature request, props a-plenty :)

Hey guys. First, the gripes:

My second monitor has terrible built-in color controls, and I would like to be able to have independent color correction for my monitors. Because the only way I could get the picture to be remotely similar now would be to mess up the color on my P95f to match the Trinitron, then fix it with the nvidia tools.

God, the Viewsonic p95f is a good monitor.

Also, I have a 5700le running with Twinview, and it seems X doesn't differentiate between them as separate monitors. This isn't a problem when maximizing apps, but some apps in fullscreen mode en right smack dab in between my two monitors, splitting the image in half.

Now the props. I accidentally bought an ATI card. For $200. I suffered countless hours with the little bastard to make it work in X.org 6.7, then was happy for a while, until X.org 6.8 came out. So I traded my Radeon 9800 Pro with a Win user for a 5700le, and I could not be happier. I build people computers pretty frequently and as a computer tech influence lots of people in their purchases, and let me say that nVidia has earned my business with the quality of the cards dating back to the TNT2, and the quality and concept of drivers.

Thanks so very much!

Hi,

works very well for me, including commandline and on AMD64.

However, one small problem:

I have a tri-head system with a ti4400 AGP and a 5200 PCI (the latter running two heads). I don't get an temperature readings from either card, although I get them fine on my AMD64 with a single 5900XT.

Is that because my cards don't have the sensors or is this a limitation of the program?

Another suggestion: I would like to do settings remote, that means I sit on a different X11 display than the one I want to fiddle with. While I can do so with the commandline interface, it seems to me it would be easy to allow different $DISPLAY settings for the display to be queried/manipulated and the display you want the GUI on.

Thanks
Martin

Anybody see this error:
ERROR: NV-CONTROL extension not found on this Display.
Right now the gui will start but the application has no functionality, I can't assign or even query attributes.

I'm running FC3 for amd64 with geforce4 420 go.

Nevermind, I forgot to edid my xorg.conf to use the nvidia driver. Now that I have, I have bigger problems, when I start X all I get is a black screen.

Found the source of crashing with nvidia-settings.

I switched my xorg.conf to use SW cursor instead of the HW one. Seems that all the cursor settings in the .nvidia-settings-rc file don't like it if the SW cursor is being used instead of the HW one. I switched it back to the default (using HW cursor.. though they flicker like crazy in KDE!) and the problem went away.

Hi there,

I have an ASUS AGP8200 with GeForce 3 Ti 500 on my linux box. Nice thing, Asus delivers it with a utility that reads the temperature and fan tacho value. However, using nvidia setting, I do not get a temperature reading even when using the API directly (the function returns a value indicating there is no attribute GPU_CORE_TEMPERATURE). Anybody successful in getting a temperature out of this card ?

Best regards

I am trying to compile this on FC3 64 When I am in the src/libXNVCtrl I did all the readme said nut Make does not do any output

Here is what is all says.

mv -f Makefile Makefile.bak
imake -DUseInstalled -I/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/config
rm -f *.CKP *.ln *.BAK *.bak *.o core errs ,* *~ *.a .emacs_* tags TAGS make.log MakeOut "#"*


When make is type there is no output at all and nothing is actually done...

Any ideas?


Jim

This works great! Are there any ideas on when the panel will enable s-video out on my ge-force 5700? I would uninstall xp if I could have this feature.

Default Re: Official NVIDIA Linux control panel feedback thread

Don't know if this bug is allready reported but the settings for my TV display device isn't saved to .nvidia-settings-rc
That is the settings I configure under "host:0.0 -> Display Devices -> TV-0".
Other settings are saved.

Is there any way to add these settings by hand to the rc file ?
I would like to set TV Saturation when I start X

Config info:
-------------------------------------------------
Graphics Processor: GeForce4 MX 440
Bus Type: AGP
VBIOS Version: 04.17.00.45.00
Video Memory: 64 MB
IRQ: 16
Operating System Linux-x86
NVIDIA Driver Version: 1.0-7174
-------------------------------------------------

Also I think it would be usefull to be able to select and copy the above info from the nvidia-settings application.
