NVIDIA Settings & Ubuntu 14.10; where to save xorg.conf?

Hello everyone,

I’m currently testing out Ubuntu 14.10 and i’ve installed the 346.47 drivers. At the moment, i’m trying to save my X Server Display Configuration via Save to X Configuration file. Typically, i’ve always saved it to /etc/X11/xorg.conf … but despite doing that, the settings won’t be restored on reboot of Ubuntu. Where am I meant to save the xorg.conf file, if not to /etc/X11 ?

I appreciate all the assistance. :)

Some of Ubuntu’s packages have scripts that overwrite /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Are you finding that the contents of your xorg.conf are getting changed? If so, I’d recommend checking with an Ubuntu support forum.

Sorry for the late reply. Thanks for the feedback. :D

A little late replying again. :) I took a look…unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to make a difference. Ubuntu 14.10 / 15.04 are the only distros I know that don’t seem to want to load any saved resolution and refresh rate settings on boot.
