missing xorg.conf?

http://forums.opensuse.org – I cannot save my "Configure Desktop" settings. I have 2 monitors and a Nvidia 8500. All was well under 11.1 but neither an upgrade or fresh install will save my settings. Under configure desktop, I go to display and at first it shows both monitors overlapped and my screens are mirrored. I can tell it to position the second monitor to the right of the 1st, and apply and it will work until I reboot. I've tried it as root and as my end user. Also, I can't locate a xorg.conf. I have /etc/X11/xorg.conf.install, only. I thought the right nvidia drivers were installed automatically in version 11.2. AND, if I try to enable desktop settings, when I hit apply I get: Failed to activate desktop effects using the given configuration options. Settigns will be reverted to their previous values. I'm not even changing anything. Just enabling and hitting apply. Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot? (Distributions)
