nvidia-settings no effect of setting attributes

I’m trying to overclock a NVIDIA GTX TI 1060 in Lubuntu 16.04. Installation has been succesfull in all other ways, but when I try to change overclocking attributes, they don’t stick. No effect. In the graphical nvidia-settings,I can change parameters under powermizer, but nothing happens. If I quit settings, the parameters are not saved. I have also checked the rc-file. Settings are not written to .nvidia-settings-rc.
When I try using command line tool and enter:

nvidia-settings -a [gpu:0]/GPUTargetFanSpeed=60

I get no effect. When I run

nvidia-settings -q all | grep -i gputargetfanspeed

It still shows:

Attribute ‘GPUTargetFanSpeed’ (Plankton:0[fan:0]): 40.

I have searched all over the net and have not found anyone having this problem.

nvidia-installer.log (2.94 KB)
nvidia-bug-report.log.gz (126 KB)
xorg.conf.txt (1.39 KB)

I’ve been working on this recently.

Did you put Option “Coolbits” “4” in your xorg.conf file?
This should allow changing fan speed. Also, this can be done only when you use x server, meaning not possible through ssh unless you export DISPLAY and XAUTHORITY.


One more things, persistance mode should be turned on too. Check this link.
