Need help with Nvidia settings in Mint 17.3

Been away too long again...My health has kept me from many of the things I love.

Try to pull my online life together again. Have given up my office and now work from my bedroom, much less energy involved...yes it's come to that! ":O}

In making the move I needed to give up my desk top monitor and switch over to using my LG 60" TV monitor at 1920X1080.

as this does not quite fit my screen I use the underscan adjustment and everything looks and acts right. until I adjust (enlarge or make smaller) my fonts or reboot then it reverts to 1377X768.

It SEEMS to save to Xfile, but wont keep my settings. LG says this is the preferred setting.

One more thing I'm running my HD though my Denon Receiver, but as they tout its video pass thought to 4K HD I doubt this is causing the problem...but who knows!

As always any help in steadying my settings will be appreciated!

I know it must seem that I only appear when I have a problem. Yet the reality is that as soon as I feel up to it I return to old friends and computing. So really I only have a problem when I return..!

I suspect the same is true of you!

(you only have a problem when I return)

In the hopes of cheering you up a bit....

I'm pretty sure that I've exhausted every avenue of approach that offers itself to the hit and miss of the completely ignorant and complacent!

So you won't have to do any of that part...I took care of it for you!

All I'm asking
is that you diagnose the problem and fix it... should be easy...

but if it isn't, I guess I could give a little more time.

Off topic:

I can't say how much I've missed having problems for you to solve.

Back to work!:

If you need more pic's or just a bit of encouragement you know you can always count on me!

Daniel, where are you saving the settings to?

That utility should save the settings automatically, when exiting, to a dotfile in your /home/Daniel directory, like ~/.nvidia-settings-rc or something like that.

If you use the 'save to a configuration file' button, it tries to save to /etc/X11/xorg.conf

To save to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, you would have to be root when running the utility.

I'd suggest that you take your question over to the new forums, more likely to get linux users looking at it.
