Monitor won't stay primary

Post by nex01 » Wed May 16, 2018 4:12 pm

After every restart, I have to go into the Nvidia X Server settings and make my second monitor primary.
I click apply and also Save to X Configuration file, but it does not save.
Any ideas?

here my inxi -FXz if that helps:

Make the correct monitor configuration change in the NVIDIA Settings utility. Then open the Driver Manager and click the Apply button.
