i'm experiencing a strange problem with dual monitors. when i set the dual monitor via "nvidia settings" and save the setting to xorg.conf, the default unity theme and icons are turning back to gtk default.
Tried another forum (Precise) for an answer, but perhaps this one is more specific.
I bought a laptop with a ATI/AMD 6970 card. When rebooted into OO or PP the gamma is extremely light. If I start the Catalyst control center and then cancel it, it reverts to my custom settings. The settings are shown as saved properly, but not recognized on reboot.
If my monitor is off when my computer reboots the settings in amdcccle are perfect, but if the monitor is off when the computer restarts the settings go back to default. Is the a way to trick the computer into thinking the display is always on and connected or is ther a way to force the settings to stay the same in amdcccle?
This began with nvidia-settings move from /extra to /usr. I choose 16x anisotropy in nvidia-settings (as user), after that I restart Google Chrome (for example) and have anisotropy filtering. But after rebooting I have unfiltered 3D graphics. Slider in nvidia-settings stay at 16x position.
