Question How to Save Nvidia Driver Settings?

I have just installed the nvidia driver on Fedora 16(64bit). What I would like to do is to adjust display color (i.e. gamma value). When I start "nvidia-settings" and change the gamma value, it works as I expect.

However, it does not keep the adjusted gamma settings after reboots or log-offs.

As you might suggest, I did it with a super user privilege by something like:
nvidia-settings &
sudo nvidia-settings
Also, I have hit "confirm this settings" and then "save configuration to /etc/xorg.cong" after the change.

When I start "nvidia-settings" after boot, it recalls the gamma setting I placed before the boot! So the question might be how to automatically start "nvidia-settings" at boot (but without poping up the nvidia control panel).

Re: How to Save Nvidia Driver Settings?

Whenever you change and save settings using nvidia-settings that don't require root privilege (such as making changes to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file), those settings are saved in ~/.nvidia-settings-rc. However, as you've discovered, those settings aren't automatically read when you enter your desktop session.

To do that, go to your "Session and Startup" menu (or whatever it's called in whatever DE you're using) and create a new session autostart item.

For the command to run, use: nvidia-settings --load-config-only

Now, when you log into a new session, your saved nvidia settings will be applied.

Talking Re: How to Save Nvidia Driver Settings?

Thanks! It worked!

My desktop environment is Gnome 3, and I had a trouble to find a way to automatically start an application at first. People who want to start an application at boot, here is the way to do so:
On terminal, do this.
