Default Re: nvidia-settings

I'm not exactly sure what you mean. The nvidia-settings tool is for changing various driver settings which are mainly image quality (opengl, xvideo ..) related. The settings stay enabled during the current X session and won't be reloaded the next one unless you somehow made the tool load its config file on X startup. Further everyone has his own nvidia-settings config file as these settings are user specific. I hope this helps a bit, so if you can't find the config file then it isn't loaded on X startup. (also you need to load it somehow yourself)

Thanks for the info, i am going from what i have been told on Knoppix.net

I have done what he said but cant find that file hes talking about so when i run nvidia-settings it just reloads x etc.

Further I doubt that the nvidia drivers support rotating (Xrandr) these days. Where did you hear that?
