Step 2: Restart

Step 3: run nvidia settings

Code: Select all

sudo nvidia-settings
Step 4: set everything up and click on apply.

Step 5: Click on "Save to X Configuration File" under "X Server Display Configuration" section and save your new settings.

Step 6: Go to the taskbar menu > Preferences > Startup Applications

Click on "Add" and fill in the following

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.
