editing xorg.conf not working anymore? [Solved]

Postby G.Ray » Fri Aug 21, 2009 8:16

Hi,
I've just installed the nVidia driver 185.18.14 on 4.2 amd64 and keep pushing me back to a 60 Hz refresh rate.
I've tried editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf by hand: vi, gedit even through gksu nvidia-settings.The file stays as supposed:
Code: Select all
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings:  version 1.0  ([email protected])  Mon Apr  6 07:28:56 UTC 2009

I am sorry for the mess I've created here, seems that the monitor part of xorg.conf got replicated somehowafter the initial editing or I just missed it, doing a second edit on file seems to bring back my 85 Hz.
Again, sorry.
So, it is solved.
