I’m pretty new to Linux and I fresh installed a Xubuntu 16.04 (64 bit) on my Computer. I’m using a Geforce 210 and installed the suggested driver 340.96 via the “additional drivers” window. The nvidia drivers download page tells me that this is the correct version for my card.
I opened /etc/X11/xorg.conf as root and added
Option "Coolbits" "1"
in the “Device section”, but that didn’t give me the “Clock Frequencies” Option in nvidia settings. I also tried
sudo nvidia-xconfig --cool-bits=1
but that didn’t work as well. However, using the value “4” for coolbits works, but I’m rather interested in configuring the clock than the fan, like I did under Windows.
In my post in ubuntuusers forum it was mentioned, that maybe the whole option was dropped by nvidia at some point.
So my question is, am I doing something wrong? Or is this feature really not available - with this driver/ for any driver?
Thanks for your attention.
Hopefully helpful informations:
