View Full Version : NVIDIA settings doesn't load (fixed)
07-26-2005, 08:56 AM
I installed the latest nvidia driver from PBI. Then I configured screen brightness, contrast, etc. in KMenu -> Programs -> Nvidia driver -> Settings. Everything ok so far. But when I reboot or halt my computer and start again, then these settings are not loaded again. I have to start the Nvidia settings program myself, only then the settings are activated.
Must it be so or is it a bug?

If it isn't on your desktop already ...
1) Go to the nvidia settings icon in the start menu, right click it and select "Add item to Desktop"
2) open this folder in konqueror
3) Copy or move the desktop icon for the nvidia settings panel into the Autostart directory.
It will now start everytime you restart KDE. There are probably other (better) ways to do this. Watch out for the .kde folder in your home directory. The "." in front of the name makes it invisible unless you you turn on "Show Hidden" in konqs View menu. if you just type ~/.kde/Autostart it will open straight up.

I found that it's not bug actually. This document, section 4 speaks about it: ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux ... -guide.txt (ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/nvidia-settings-user-guide.txt) .
So I did as SBlevin said, added the program to KDE autostart folder plus added --load-config-only at the end of programs command line (Right click on program -> properties -> application). That way settings get loaded and the program doesn't come up annoyingly every startup. :)
