  1. ben@i7:~$ nvidia-settings -h
  3. nvidia-settings: version 390.42 (buildd@lcy01-amd64-029) Thu Mar 22 17:34:03
  4. UTC 2018
  5. The NVIDIA X Server Settings tool.
  7. This program is used to configure the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver.
  8. For more detail, please see the nvidia-settings(1) man page.
  11. nvidia-settings [options]
  13. -v, --version
  14. Print the nvidia-settings version and exit.
  16. -h, --help
  17. Print usage information and exit.
  19. --config=CONFIG
  20. Use the configuration file CONFIG rather than the default ~/.nvidia-setti
  21. ngs-rc
  23. -c CTRL-DISPLAY, --ctrl-display=CTRL-DISPLAY
  24. Control the specified X display. If this option is not given, then nvidi
  25. a-settings will control the display specified by '--display'; if that is
  26. not given, then the $DISPLAY environment variable is used.
  28. -l, --load-config-only
  29. Load the configuration file, send the values specified therein to the X s
  30. erver, and exit. This mode of operation is useful to place in your xinit
  31. rc file, for example.
  33. -n, --no-config
  34. Do not load the configuration file. This mode of operation is useful if
  35. nvidia-settings has difficulties starting due to problems with applying s
  36. ettings in the configuration file.
  38. -r, --rewrite-config-file
  39. Write the X server configuration to the configuration file, and exit, wit
  40. hout starting the graphical user interface. See EXAMPLES section.
  42. -V VERBOSE, --verbose=VERBOSE
  43. Controls how much information is printed. Valid values are 'none' (do no
  44. t print status messages), 'errors' (print error messages), 'deprecations'
  45. (print error and deprecation messages), 'warnings' (print error, deprecat
  46. ion, and warning messages), and 'all' (print error, deprecation, warning
  47. and other informational messages). By default, 'deprecations' is set.
  49. -a ASSIGN, --assign=ASSIGN
  50. The ASSIGN argument to the '--assign' command line option is of the form:
  52. {DISPLAY}/{attribute name}[{display devices}]={value}
  54. This assigns the attribute {attribute name} to the value {value} on the X
  55. Display {DISPLAY}. {DISPLAY} follows the usual {host}:{display}.{screen}
  56. syntax of the DISPLAY environment variable and is optional; when it is no
  57. t specified, then it is implied following the same rule as the --ctrl-dis
  58. play option. If the X screen is not specified, then the assignment is ma
  59. de to all X screens. Note that the '/' is only required when {DISPLAY} i
  60. s present.
  62. {DISPLAY} can additionally include a target specification to direct an as
  63. signment to something other than an X screen. A target specification is
  64. contained within brackets and consists of a target type name, a colon, an
  65. d the target id. The target type name can be one of "screen", "gpu", "fr
  66. amelock", "vcs", "gvi", "fan", "thermalsensor", "svp", or "dpy"; the targ
  67. et id is the index into the list of targets (for that target type). The
  68. target specification can be used in {DISPLAY} wherever an X screen can be
  69. used, following the syntax {host}:{display}[{target_type}:{target_id}].
  70. See the output of
  72. nvidia-settings -q all
  74. for information on which target types can be used with which attributes.
  75. See the output of
  77. nvidia-settings -q screens -q gpus -q framelocks -q vcs -q gvis -q fan
  78. s -q thermalsensors -q svps -q dpys
  80. for lists of targets for each target type.
  82. The [{display devices}] portion is also optional; if it is not specified,
  83. then the attribute is assigned to all display devices.
  85. Some examples:
  87. -a FSAA=5
  88. -a localhost:0.0/DigitalVibrance[CRT-0]=0
  89. --assign="SyncToVBlank=1"
  90. -a [gpu:0]/DigitalVibrance[DFP-1]=63
  92. -q QUERY, --query=QUERY
  93. The QUERY argument to the '--query' command line option is of the form:
  95. {DISPLAY}/{attribute name}[{display devices}]
  97. This queries the current value of the attribute {attribute name} on the X
  98. Display {DISPLAY}. The syntax is the same as that for the '--assign' opt
  99. ion, without '={value}'; specify '-q screens', '-q gpus', '-q framelocks'
  100. , '-q vcs', '-q gvis', '-q fans', '-q thermalsensors', '-q svps', or '-q
  101. dpys' to query a list of X screens, GPUs, Frame Lock devices, Visual Comp
  102. uting Systems, SDI Input Devices, Fans, Thermal Sensors, 3D Vision Pro Tr
  103. ansceivers, or Display Devices, respectively, that are present on the X D
  104. isplay {DISPLAY}. Specify '-q all' to query all attributes.
  106. -t, --terse
  107. When querying attribute values with the '--query' command line option, on
  108. ly print the current value, rather than the more verbose description of t
  109. he attribute, its valid values, and its current value.
  111. -d, --display-device-string
  112. When printing attribute values in response to the '--query' option, if th
  113. e attribute value is a display device mask, print the value as a list of
  114. display devices (e.g., "CRT-0, DFP-0"), rather than a hexadecimal bit mas
  115. k (e.g., 0x00010001).
  117. -g, --glxinfo
  118. Print GLX Information for the X display and exit.
  120. -e DESCRIBE, --describe=DESCRIBE
  121. Prints information about a particular attribute. Specify 'all' to list t
  122. he descriptions of all attributes. Specify 'list' to list the attribute
  123. names without a descriptions.
  125. -p PAGE, --page=PAGE
  126. The PAGE argument to the '--page' commandline option selects a particular
  127. page in the nvidia-settings user interface to display upon starting nvidi
  128. a-settings. Valid values are the page names in the tree view on the left
  129. side of the nvidia-settings user interface; e.g.,
  131. --page="X Screen 0"
  133. Because some page names are not unique (e.g., a "PowerMizer" page is pres
  134. ent under each GPU), the page name can optionally be prepended with the n
  135. ame of the parent X Screen or GPU page, followed by a comma. E.g.,
  137. --page="GPU 0 - (Quadro 6000), PowerMizer"
  139. The first page with a name matching the PAGE argument will be used. By d
  140. efault, the "X Server Information" page is displayed.
  142. -L, --list-targets-only
  143. When performing an attribute query (from the '--query' command line optio
  144. n) or an attribute assignment (from the '--assign' command line option or
  145. when loading an ~/.nvidia-settings-rc file), nvidia-settings identifies o
  146. ne or more targets on which to query/assign the attribute.
  148. The '--list-targets-only' option will cause nvidia-settings to list the t
  149. argets on which the query/assign operation would have been performed, wit
  150. hout actually performing the operation(s), and exit.
  152. -w, --write-config, --no-write-config
  153. Save the configuration file on exit (enabled by default).
  155. -i, --use-gtk2
  156. Force nvidia-settings to use the GTK+ 2 library for the graphical user in
  157. terface if a user interface is required. This option is only available on
  158. systems where nvidia-settings supports both the GTK+ 2 and GTK+ 3 user in
  159. terfaces.
  161. -I GTK-LIBRARY, --gtk-library=GTK-LIBRARY
  162. Specify the graphical user interface library to use if a nvidia-settings
  163. user interface is required. This value may be the exact location of the l
  164. ibrary or it may be the directory containing the appropriately named libr
  165. ary. If this is the exact location, the 'use-gtk2' option is ignored.
