Hi all, I've had no luck keeping my video configuration settings after boot on my Linux install. Is there something I'm missing to make my settings persistent, or do I need to reset them every time I reboot my machine? Saving my xorg isn't working.
 
Thanks!

    Seems to be an OS issue ?

    Are you opening the NVIDIA settings as root? I'm not entirely sure what program you are using to change the settings as there are a few out there but you might need to open a terminal and run "sudo program-name" to have it open and make the changes persistent.

    I'm running nvidia-settings (md5 44c1eeb1be06bb09a41b0b5e96fa6b22). I've attempted to run as a normal user and save my Xorg config (which prompts for sudo credentials). I've attempted to run as root (which sensibly doesn't prompt). I've tried saving the generated xorg.conf file as /etc/X11/Xsession.d/20-nvidia.conf with all the same permissions as every other file in that folder. None of them work.
