Ubuntu – Nvidia drivers seem to ignore customized xorg.conf in 13.10? How to configure


I just upgraded from 13.04 to 13.10 and now I'm having a problem with the nvidia X server settings: the changes I make don't stay saved after I restart the X server.

I checked the xorg.conf (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and it's ok but I think it's not being used. Did they move the xorg.conf file?

The xserver.configfile for Ubuntu 13.10 is located at /etc/X11/xorg.conf . You can change the Nvidia settings by using the nvidia-settings application from the default Ubuntu repositories. nvidia-settings is a graphical application for changing the Nvidia settings. To launch nvidia-settings search for nvidia in the Dash and click on the green icon that says NVIDIA X Server Settings.
