Just noticed that the latest nvidia drivers 6016? include a gui settings manager. Run from ./nvidia-settings. Cool. More info on the nvidia site....

    Neat. I think the newest version is 6111 though.

    6111 has it as well. Very nice tool. I especially like tweaking mouse drop-shadows and the monitors digital vibrance(really makes colors pop).
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

    Is anyone having issues where if you reboot, your nvidia-settings do not hold. I mean, they hold but do not "kick in" until you run nvidia-settings.
    For example if you set the digital viberance to something noticable and reboot, your digital viberance settings will not be noticable anymore until you run nvidia-settings, then it will "kick in"
    I do not want to have to run nvidia-settings everytime i turn on my computer. Is there a way around this?
    Thanks

    If you're running nvidia-settings as a regular user the changes you make may only affect that user. Have you tried making these changes as root instead?

    I found the fix.
    making the changes as root has the same problem.
    you can run "nvidia-settings --load-config-only" to load the settings without running the gui.
    So i'm just going to set my system to run this in rc5.d
    Thanks
