create a symlink
That's the same as Right click > Make link :)
I have stopped using nvidia (mostly) but I think it's sufficient to run nvidia-settings as root now, but perhaps this is still needed for gamma etc

I found that in the comments of the xorg.conf file that the settings in this file are mostly ignored nowdays.

Had the same problem, nothing I tried here worked, but I did get my resolution to stick by going to the hidden folder .config and inside is a file called monitors.xml.

Open monitors.xml with a text editor and you'll see width and height in html like tags, just change to what you want it to boot to!

I have to revive this old topic because i just had the same problem on my new 18.2 installation.

The problem was a xrandr Startup Application that overwrote my own settings.
After deactivating it everything worked fine.
