Ubuntu 22.04.4 RTX 2080 Not Saving Settings t reboot

I am running Ubuntu 22.04.4 LTS on an HP Desktop system with a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 (rev a1) running NVIDIA Driver Version: version 510.47.03. The /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not work on re boot. I have to reset my multi monitor setup and some settings each time I reboot or log in as a different user root or not. I have confirmed that the /etc/X11/xorg.conf is in place and correct. I hade to manually create it from the “Show Preview” in NVIDIA Setting Software. I just did a sudo nano etcx11/xorg.conf past the preview txt into the editor and saved it. Any help would be great.

My system will not wake up after i suspend it any longer. Hard reboot required since I installed the NVIDIA Drivers.

Thank you

You can’t use nvidia-settings to adjust monitor settings, the gnome monitor manager will always override it. Please delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf, then use gnome control center to adjust monitor settings.


What can i do then to save the settings using the gnome? That was not saving either so I found the NVIDIA drivers and it offers more options and settings. Can you tell me how to get gnome to save it’s configuration on exit and reboot?

Thank you,

Gnome saves its monitor config in ~/.config/monitors.xml. Sometimes, it gets damaged. Just delete that file, reboot, then rearrange monitors in Gnome settings. This should create a new monitors.xml.

What can I do to save changes that I do make with NVIDIA Settings? I see it runs at start up. By the way i messed up the command by typing
in a file path in the Command: Line Field. Can you tell me what I should have there please.
Nvidi Settings Comamnd Line

Thank you,

The command should be
nvidia-settings --load-config-only
this will load the settings stored in .nvidia-settings-rc
No monitor modes included.
