If no configuration file can be found, nvidia-xconfig generates one from scratch using default settings; in this case, nvidia- xconfig will automatically determine the name of the X configu- ration file to create: Valid values are ‘none’ do not print status messages , ‘errors’ print error messages , ‘deprecations’ print error and deprecation mes- sages , ‘warnings’ print error, deprecation, and warning mes- sages , and ‘all’ print error, deprecation, warning and other informational messages. If there are multiple device sec- tions, then it adds the BusID field to each of them. Specify ‘list’ to list the attribute names without a descriptions.

Want to link to this manual page? If this option is not specified, all screens within the selected Server Layout in the X configuration file will be used used.

These two X connections do not need to be to the same X server.

When the ‘–separate-x-screens’ option is specified, each GPU on which an X screen is currently configured will be updated to have two or more depending on the capabili- ties of that GPU X screens configured.

Similarly, the Display Devices cat- egory for a screen contains all the enabled display devices beneath it. The –query option can be used to query the current value of attributes. Use this option to override what nvidia-xconfig detects. A target type indicates the object that is queried when you query an attribute. This is intentional, because different users may have different preferences, thus these settings are stored on a per-user basis in a configuration file stored in the user’s home directory.


This is useful to limit processing to a subset of nvidoa, based on an existing relationship s to other targets.

This mode of operation is useful to place in your xinitrc file, for example. Skip site navigation 1 Skip section navigation 2 Header And Logo. Note that nvidia-xconfig does not perform any validation of the X configuration file options requested on the command line; X con- figuration file option validation is left for the NVIDIA X driver.

For example, the following query would address GPU 0, and not X screen 1: Target types give you different granularities with which to perform queries and assignments.

When nvidia-settings frebesd, it reads the current settings from its configuration file and sends those settings to the X server. This option should normally not be needed. The simplest, most common, and least secure mechanism to do this is to use ‘xhost’ to allow access from the computer on which you are running nvidia-settings.

Each set of performance mode tokens is separated by a “;”. Note that nvidia-xconfig, if necessary, will append a unique number to the EDID filename, fredbsd avoid over- writing existing files e. Only under rare circumstances should this option be needed.


This library is typically only used by nvidia-xconfig when configuring multiple X screens. If you know what you are doing and want config file attributes to be qualified with an X Display, check the “Include X Display Names in the Config File” option on the nvidia-settings Configuration page. The syntax for –assign is the same as –query, with the additional requirement that assignments also have an equal sign and the new value.

The configuration file is not modi- fied. A target specification is contained within brackets and may consist of a target type name, a colon, and the target id. Values such as brightness and gamma, XVideo attributes, temperature, and OpenGL settings can be queried and configured via nvidia-settings. If no X screen is specified, then the attribute value will be queried for all valid targets of the attribute eg GPUs, Displays X screens, etc.

This value may be the exact location of the library or it may be the directory containing the appropriately named library. Additionally, individual attributes may be specified like this: Connecting to Remote X Servers 7.

This option is a semicolon-separated list of pairs of dis- fresbsd device names and filename pairs; e. Valid values for “TVStandard” are: By default, ‘deprecations’ is set. Typically, if you are using an X.
