    Question Nvidia 4060 - Laptop - Ubuntu Cinnamon 24.04 - Forced Setting Questions

    Howdy All,

    I am using on 24.04, nvidia - driver settings.

    Inside the section: GPU-0 Nvidia 4060, Powermizer is auto set at adaptive, and every time I boot up, I have to manually force set - preferred mode - prefer maximum performance (4).

    Adaptive Clocking is enabled, cannot be changed in the nvidia settings directly to my awareness.

    I've attached a picture of my neofetch. I'm using the latest nvidia driver that the updates permit (the regular one, nothing extra).

    I'm not sure how to make an application profile, or how to make a config or whatever it is to force the power setting 4 wherever.

    I have tried a few fb groups - and several google search attempts. And nothing obvious stands out or makes sense.

    Does anyone have any knowledge/how to awareness on how to support/provide best direction on configuring the hardware settings for nvidia 4060 on my laptop?

    I can only attach 1 screenshot in this post directly.

    Have you tried using "sudo"?
    Code:
    sudo nvidia-settings
    Make your chages then ask it to save the file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf)

    I can - cbange - from adaptive to max performance, and I can make those changes - literally every time I boot up.

    But it defaults to adaptive every boot. There is no - keep settings on boot - option that is visible. It never sticks long term, sudo or not.

    It just defaults to adaptive until I "change it" after a reboot, again.

    Code:
    less /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    ^^^ Tried copy pasto of your code reference, no joy.

    Tried sudo nvidia-settings, opens nvidia settings like I normally do, switch adaptive to performance, reboot, and it's back to adaptive again as predicted.

    This is why your won't save>>"/etc/x11/xorg.conf: No such file or directory"
    A sample of mine:
    Code:

    EndSection
    Are you sure you want prefer maximum performance (4).?
    If so try this at your own risk:
    Code:
    sudo nvidia-xconfig -a --cool-bits=4 --allow-empty-initial-configuration
    You still haven't replied to my question>>>>Wayland or X11 session?
    Code:
    inxi -G | grep Display

    Code:

    wayland or x11, never mentioned in previous mention, hence confusion on that. I provided my neofetch, and it's a 24.04 ubuntu cinnamon install as is. No plus or minus of either or.


    For: xconfig cool bits part.

    rmleloupjr@rmleloupjr-Bravo-15-C7VFK:~$ sudo nvidia-xconfig -a --cool-bits=4 --allow-empty-initial-configuration
    [sudo] password for rmleloupjr:


    WARNING: Unable to locate/open X configuration file.


    Option "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration" "True" added to Screen "Screen0".
    New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'
    -------

    I'm sure/want maximum performance 4, that is my goal, that is my destination, that is my effort and my ask, no more no less. Literal.

    What you're asking, i'm attempting with copy paste literal,

    Copy paste of the final bit:
    rmleloupjr@rmleloupjr-Bravo-15-C7VFK:~$ inxi -G | grep Display
    Display: x11 server: X.Org v: 21.1.11 driver: X:


    And to clarify - again, this is the first you've asked of it, not prior in previous comments. Just stating this to clarify, not to cause negativity. (I'm autistic/aspergers).

    I must of cropped it out, I use a text pad for all my posting just to check first if it's right.
    Now all that by the side, what now shows with:
    Code:
    less /etc/x11/xorg.conf

    mleloupjr@rmleloupjr-Bravo-15-C7VFK:~$
    less /etc/x11/xorg.conf
    /etc/x11/xorg.conf: No such file or directory
    rmleloupjr@rmleloupjr-Bravo-15-C7VFK:~$

    No such, file, literal. Which confuses me. What you're asking, I do with Sudo or without sudo, is there a case sensitive issue here?

    I also tried adding nano screenshot to this reply, so you can see it's literally - void empty nada zipo.

    If your posts are accurate you did it just fine "sudo" and not "Sudo"
    I've not encountered what you show with sudo* this is something i need to think about.
    But will you show me this:
    Code:
    sudo su
    and
    Code:
    whoami
