I then downloaded the latest version of the nvidia driver from their site, you know the NVIDIA-Linux-256.35.run file. http://arnoldtechweb.com/failed-to/failed-to-initialize-the-nvidia-graphics-device-ubuntu.html You will have to register before you can post in the forums. (Be aware the forums do not accept user names with a dash "-") Also, logging in lets you avoid So solved;but normally nvidia-settings should ask for password when "saving to xorg configuration file" ,no need for sudo. It's been a while since needing to mess with these NVIDIA drivers for me, and I'm having no luck.

  • Those links don't have anything useful in them.
  • you can even apply the chosen setting for you current x-session on the fly.
  • For whatever case, the nvidia settings app does not launch as root.
  • This enabled TwinView and also I can manipulate the settings from nvidia-settings without the MetaMode error.
  • Update additional packages per any suggestions.
  • openSUSE really needs to work on this one...
  • I'm out of any other ideas.
  • Select Articles, Forum, or Blog.

Sadly, no luck - I was able to choose TwinView as before, but got the metamode error messages again. Procedure: I installed the latest driver from the nvidia page (256.35) with the nomodeset kernel boot option. The time now is 11:26 PM. navigate here Any ideas?

This enabled TwinView and also I can manipulate the settings from nvidia-settings without the MetaMode error. KEEP IT!!! Here the corresponding error: "Failed to set MetaMode (1) 'CRT-0: nvidia-auto-select @1920x1200 +1680+0, DFP-0: 1680x1050 @1680x1050 +0+0' (Mode 3600x1200, id: 65) on X screen 0 Would you like to remove this It was a permissions problem.

I had to go command line and launch the app using sudo, and I was able to save everything without issue.
