Can't change resolution after changing drivers

Post by Hepple »

I have just finished installing Mint 17 and switched from the nouveau driver to the nvidia 331.113 driver. The problem is that my resolution is now stuck in 2880x1620. When I try to change the resolution I get the error:

Failed to apply configuration: %s
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.cinnamon.SettingsDaemon was not provided by any .service files

I have no idea where to start solving this. Appreciate any help.

I am glad I can post a solution or at least work around. Nothing on the net answered this - so i kinda lucked into it.

removed .config/monitors.xml,
restarted

and Display manager went to booting up quickly again - with no black background issue either - everything back to normal - so easy.
