NAME
       nvidia-xconfig - manipulate X configuration files for the NVIDIA driver

SYNOPSIS
       nvidia-xconfig [ options ]

DESCRIPTION
       nvidia-xconfig is a tool intended to provide basic control over config-
       uration options available in the NVIDIA X driver.

       nvidia-xconfig performs its operations in several steps:

       1)     The system X configuration file is found and read  into  memory.
              If  no configuration file can be found, nvidia-xconfig generates
              one from scratch using default settings; in this  case,  nvidia-
              xconfig  will automatically determine the name of the X configu-
              ration file to create: /etc/X11/xorg.conf if the X server in use
              is  X.org  or  /etc/X11/XF86Config  if  the  X  server in use is
              XFree86.

       2)     The configuration in memory is modified to  support  the  NVIDIA
              driver.   This  consists  of  changing  the  display  driver  to
              "nvidia", removing the commands to load the "GLcore"  and  "dri"
              modules, and adding the command to load the "glx" module.

       3)     The configuration in memory is modified according to the options
              specified on the command line.  Please see the NVIDIA README for
              a  description of the NVIDIA X configuration file options.  Note
              that nvidia-xconfig does not perform any  validation  of  the  X
              configuration file options requested on the command line; X con-
              figuration file option validation  is  left  for  the  NVIDIA  X
              driver.

       4)     The  configuration is written back to the file from which it was
              read.  A backup of the original configuration  is  created  with
              ".backup"  appended.   For  example,  if your X configuration is
              /etc/X11/xorg.conf  then  nvidia-xconfig   will   copy   it   to
              /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup  before writing the new configuration.
              The --post-tree (-T) option can be used to print the new config-
              uration  to  standard  out in tree form instead.  This option is
              useful to see what nvidia-xconfig  will  do  while  leaving  the
              original configuration intact.

       The  source code to nvidia-xconfig is released under the GPL and avail-
       able here:


            Patches are welcome.

OPTIONS
       -c XCONFIG, --xconfig=XCONFIG
              Use XCONFIG as the input X config file; if this  option  is  not
              specified,  then  the same search path used by the X server will
              be used to find the X configuration file.

       -o OUTPUT-XCONFIG, --output-xconfig=OUTPUT-XCONFIG
              Use OUTPUT-XCONFIG as the output X configuration file;  if  this
              option is not specified, then the input X configuration filename
              will also be used as the output X configuration filename.

       -s, --silent
              Run silently; no messages will be printed to stdout, except  for
              warning and error messages to stderr.

       -t, --tree
              Read   the   X   configuration  file,  print  to  stdout  the  X
              configuration data in a tree format, and exit.

       -v, --version
              Print the nvidia-xconfig version and exit.

       -h, --help
              Print usage information for the common commandline  options  and
              exit.

       -A, --advanced-help
              Print  usage  information  for the common commandline options as
              well as the advanced options, and then exit.

ADVANCED OPTIONS
       --acpid-socket-path=ACPID-SOCKET-PATH, --no-acpid-socket-path
              Set this option to specify an alternate path to the  Linux  ACPI
              daemon  (acpid)'s  socket, which the NVIDIA X driver will use to
              connect to acpid.

       --add-argb-glx-visuals, --no-add-argb-glx-visuals
              Enables or disables support for  OpenGL  rendering  into  32-bit
              ARGB windows and pixmaps.

       --allow-glx-with-composite, --no-allow-glx-with-composite
              Enable  or  disable  the "AllowGLXWithComposite" X configuration
              option.

       --busid=BUSID, --no-busid
              This option writes the specified BusID to the device section  of
              the   X  configuration  file.   If  there  are  multiple  device
              sections, then it adds the BusID field to each of them.  To  add
              the  BusID  to only a specific device or screen section, use the
              '--device' or '--screen' options.

       --preserve-busid, --no-preserve-busid
              By default, nvidia-xconfig preserves the existing BusID in the X
              configuration   file  only  if  there  are  multiple  X  screens
              configured  for  the  X  server.   Use   '--preserve-busid'   or
              '--no-preserve-busid'  to force the BusID to be preserved or not
              preserved, overriding the default behavior.

       --cool-bits=COOL-BITS, --no-cool-bits
              Enable  or  disable  the  "Coolbits"  X  configuration   option.
              Setting  this  option  will  enable  support in the NV-CONTROL X
              extension  for  manipulating  GPU  clock  and  GPU  fan  control
              settings.  Default  value  is  0.   For fan control set it to 4.
              WARNING: this may cause system damage and void warranties.

       --composite, --no-composite
              Enable or disable the "Composite" X extension.

       --connected-monitor=CONNECTED-MONITOR, --no-connected-monitor
              Enable  or  disable  the   "ConnectedMonitor"  X   configuration
              option;  setting this option forces the X driver to behave as if
              the specified display devices are connected to the GPU.

       --connect-to-acpid, --no-connect-to-acpid
              Enable or disable the "ConnectToAcpid" X  configuration  option.
              If  this  option  is  set,  the  NVIDIA X driver will attempt to
              connect to the Linux ACPI daemon (acpid).  Set  this  option  to
              off to prevent the X driver from attempting to connect to acpid.

       --constant-dpi, --no-constant-dpi
              Enable  or  disable  the  "ConstantDPI"  X configuration option,
              which controls whether the NVIDIA X driver maintains a  constant
              dots  per  inch  (DPI) value by recomputing the reported size in
              millimeters of the X screen when  XRandR  changes  the  size  in
              pixels of the X screen.

       --custom-edid=CUSTOM-EDID, --no-custom-edid
              Enable  or  disable  the   "CustomEDID"  X configuration option;
              setting this  option  forces  the  X  driver  to  use  the  EDID
              specified.This  option is a semicolon-separated list of pairs of
              display device names and filename pairs; e.g "CRT-0:mp\did.bin".
              Note that a display device name must always be specified even if
              only one EDID is specified.

       --dac-8bit, --no-dac-8bit
              Most Quadro parts by default use a 10 bit color  look  up  table
              (LUT)  by  default;  setting  this  option  to TRUE forces these
              graphics chips to use an 8 bit (LUT).

       -d DEPTH, --depth=DEPTH
              Set the default depth to DEPTH ; valid values for DEPTH  are  8,
              15, 16, 24, and 30.

       --device=DEVICE
              The  nvidia-xconfig  utility  operates on one or more devices in
              the X configuration file.  If  this  option  is  specified,  the
              device  named  DEVICE  in the X configuration file will be used.
              If this option is not specified, all the devices  within  the  X
              configuration file will be used.

       --disable-glx-root-clipping, --no-disable-glx-root-clipping
              Disable  or  enable clipping OpenGL rendering to the root window
              via the "DisableGLXRootClipping" X configuration option.

       --damage-events, --no-damage-events
              Use  OS-level  events  to   notify   the   X   server   when   a
              direct-rendering client has performed rendering that needs to be
              composited to the screen.  Improves performance when  using  GLX
              with the composite extension.

       --preserve-driver-name
              By  default  nvidia-xconfig  changes  the   display   driver  to
              "nvidia" for all configured X screens; this option preserves the
              existing driver name of each X screen.

       -a, --enable-all-gpus
              Configure an X screen on every GPU in the system.

       --exact-mode-timings-dvi, --no-exact-mode-timings-dvi
              Forces the initialization of the X server with the exact timings
              specified in the ModeLine.

       -E FILE, --extract-edids-from-file=FILE
              Extract any raw EDID byte blocks contained in  the  specified  X
              log file LOG ; raw EDID bytes are printed by the NVIDIA X driver
              to the X log as hexidecimal when verbose logging is enabled with
              the  "-logverbose 6" X server commandline option.  Any extracted
              EDIDs are then written  as  binary  data  to  individual  files.
              These files can later be used by the NVIDIA X driver through the
              "CustomEDID" X configuration option.

       --extract-edids-output-file=FILENAME
              When   the   '--extract-edids-from-file'   option    is    used,
              nvidia-xconfig  writes  any  extracted EDID to a file, typically
              "edid.bin" in the current directory.  Use this option to specify
              an  alternate filename.  Note that nvidia-xconfig, if necessary,
              will append a unique number  to  the  EDID  filename,  to  avoid
              overwriting  existing  files  (e.g.,  "edid.bin.1" if "edid.bin"
              already exists).

       --flatpanel-properties=FLATPANEL-PROPERTIES, --no-flatpanel-properties
              Set the flat panel  properties.  The  supported  properties  are
              'dithering'  and  'ditheringmode'.  Please see the NVIDIA README
              'Appendix B. X Config Options' for more details on the  possible
              values and syntax.

       --flip, --no-flip
              Enable or disable OpenGL flipping

       --force-generate
              Force  generation  of a new X config file, ignoring any existing
              system X config file.  This is  not  typically  recommended,  as
              things  like  the  mouse  protocol, keyboard layout, font paths,
              etc, are setup by your Unix distribution.  While  nvidia-xconfig
              can  attempt  to infer these values, it is best to use your Unix
              distribution's X config file for  the  basis  of  anything  that
              nvidia-xconfig creates.

       --force-stereo-flipping, --no-force-stereo-flipping
              Normally,  stereo  flipping  is  only  performed  when  a stereo
              drawable is visible. This option  forces  stereo  flipping  even
              when no stereo drawables are visible.

       --handle-special-keys=WHEN, --no-handle-special-keys
              Specify  when  the  X  server  should  use  the builtin keyboard
              handler  to  process   special   key   combinations   (such   as
              Ctrl+Alt+Backspace);  see  the  X  configuration  man  page  for
              details.  The  value  of  WHEN  can  be  'Always',  'Never',  or
              'WhenNeeded'.

       --include-implicit-metamodes, --no-include-implicit-metamodes
              Enable or disable the "IncludeImplicitMetaModes" X configuration
              option.

       --keyboard=KEYBOARD
              When generating a new X configuration file (which  happens  when
              no   system   X   configuration   file  can  be  found,  or  the
              '--force-generate' option is specified),  use  KEYBOARD  as  the
              keyboard  type,  rather  than attempting to probe the system for
              the keyboard type.  For a list of possible keyboard  types,  see
              the '--keyboard-list' option.

       --keyboard-driver=DRIVER
              In  most  cases  nvidia-xconfig  can automatically determine the
              correct keyboard driver to use (either 'kbd' or 'keyboard'). Use
              this  option to override what nvidia-xconfig detects. Typically,
              if you are using an X.Org X server, use 'kdb'; if you are  using
              an XFree86 X server, use 'keyboard'.

       --keyboard-list
              Print  to  stdout the available keyboard types recognized by the
              '--keyboard' option, and then exit.

       --layout=LAYOUT
              The nvidia-xconfig utility operates on a  Server  Layout  within
              the  X  configuration  file.   If  this option is specified, the
              layout named LAYOUT in the X configuration file  will  be  used.
              If  this option is not specified, the first Server Layout in the
              X configuration file is used.

       --mode=MODE
              Add the specified mode to the mode list.

       --mode-debug, --no-mode-debug
              Enable or disable the "ModeDebug" X configuration  option;  when
              enabled,  this  option  causes  the  X  driver  to print verbose
              details about mode validation to the X log file.

       --mode-list=MODELIST
              Remove all existing modes from the  X  configuration's  modelist
              and add the one(s) specified in the MODELIST string.

       --remove-mode=MODE
              Remove the specified mode from the mode list.

       --metamodes=METAMODES
              Add the MetaMode X configuration option with the value METAMODES
              which will replace any existing MetaMode option already in the X
              configuration file.

       --mouse=MOUSE
              When  generating  a new X configuration file (which happens when
              no  system  X  configuration  file  can   be   found,   or   the
              '--force-generate'  option is specified), use MOUSE as the mouse
              type, rather than attempting to probe the system for  the  mouse
              type.    For   a   list   of   possible  mouse  types,  see  the
              '--mouse-list' option.

       --mouse-list
              Print to stdout the available  mouse  types  recognized  by  the
              '--mouse' option, and then exit.

       --multigpu=MULTIGPU, --no-multigpu
              Enable  or  disable  MultiGPU.   Valid  values  for MULTIGPU are
              'Off', 'On', 'Auto', 'AFR', 'SFR', 'AA'.

       --multisample-compatibility, --no-multisample-compatibility
              Enable or disable the use of separate front and back multisample
              buffers.

       --nvidia-cfg-path=PATH
              The  nvidia-cfg  library  is used to communicate with the NVIDIA
              kernel module to query basic properties  of  every  GPU  in  the
              system.   This  library is typically only used by nvidia-xconfig
              when  configuring  multiple  X  screens.   This   option   tells
              nvidia-xconfig where to look for this library (in case it cannot
              find it on its own).  This option should normally not be needed.

       --only-one-x-screen
              Disable all but one X screen.

       --overlay, --no-overlay
              Enable or disable the "Overlay" X configuration option.

       --cioverlay, --no-cioverlay
              Enable or disable the color index overlay.

       --overlay-default-visual, --no-overlay-default-visual
              Enable or disable  the  "OverlayDefaultVisual"  X  configuration
              option.

       --transparent-index=INDEX, --no-transparent-index
              Pixel  to  use  as  transparent when using color index overlays.
              Valid values for TRANSPARENT-INDEX are 0-255.

       -T, --post-tree
              Like the '--tree' option, but goes through the full  process  of
              applying  any  user  requested  updates  to the X configuration,
              before printing the final configuration  to  stdout  in  a  tree
              format.   Effectively, this option just causes the configuration
              to be printed to stdout as a tree instead of writing the results
              to file.

       --power-connector-check, --no-power-connector-check
              Disable  or  enable  the "NoPowerConnectorCheck" X configuration
              option.

       --probe-all-gpus, --no-probe-all-gpus
              Disable or enable the "ProbeAllGpus" X configuration option.

       --query-gpu-info
              Print information  about  all  recognized  NVIDIA  GPUs  in  the
              system.

       --registry-dwords=REGISTRY-DWORDS, --no-registry-dwords
              Enable or disable the "RegistryDwords" X configuration option.

       --render-accel, --no-render-accel
              Enable or disable the "RenderAccel" X configuration option.

       --render-extension, --no-render-extension
              Disable   or  enable  the  "NoRenderExtension"  X  configuration
              option.

       --screen=SCREEN
              The nvidia-xconfig utility  operates  on  one  or  more  screens
              within  a  Server  Layout  in the X configuration file.  If this
              option  is  specified,  the  screen  named  SCREEN  in   the   X
              configuration  file  will  be  used.   If  this  option  is  not
              specified, all screens within the selected Server Layout in  the
              X configuration file will be used used.

       --separate-x-screens, --no-separate-x-screens
              A  GPU  that  supports multiple simultaneous display devices can
              either drive these display devices in a single X screen,  or  as
              separate  X  screens.  When the '--separate-x-screens' option is
              specified, each GPU on which an X screen is currently configured
              will   be  updated  to  have  two  or  more  (depending  on  the
              capabilities  of  that   GPU)   X   screens   configured.    The
              '--no-separate-x-screens'   option   will   remove   any   extra
              configured X screens on each GPU.  Please see the NVIDIA  README
              description  of  "Separate  X  Screens  on  One GPU" for further
              details.

       --x-screens-per-gpu=X-SCREENS-PER-GPU
              A GPU that supports multiple simultaneous  display  devices  can
              either  drive  these display devices in a single X screen, or as
              separate X screens.  When  the  '--x-screens-per-gpu=<quantity>'
              option  is specified, each GPU on which an X screen is currently
              configured  will  be  updated  to  have  <quantity>  X  screens.
              <quantity>  has to be greater than 0. Setting <quantity> to 1 is
              equivalent to specifying the  '--no-separate-x-screens'  option.
              Please  see the NVIDIA README description of "Separate X Screens
              on One GPU" for further details.

              Disable    or    enable    the   "ThermalConfigurationCheck"   X
              configuration option.

       --tv-standard=TV-STANDARD, --no-tv-standard
              Enable or disable the "TVStandard" X configuration option. Valid
              values for "TVStandard" are: "PAL-B", "PAL-D", "PAL-G", "PAL-H",
              "PAL-I",  "PAL-K1",  "PAL-M",   "PAL-N",   "PAL-NC",   "NTSC-J",

       --nvidia-xinerama-info, --no-nvidia-xinerama-info
              Enable or disable providing Xinerama information from the NVIDIA
              X driver.

       --nvidia-xinerama-info-order=NVIDIA-XINERAMA-INFO-ORDER,   --no-nvidia-
       xinerama-info-order
              Enable  or disable the "nvidiaXineramaInfoOrder" X configuration
              option.  NVIDIA-XINERAMA-INFO-ORDER is a comma-separated list of
              display   device   names   that  describe  the  order  in  which
              nvidiaXineramaInfo should be reported.  E.g., "CRT, DFP, TV".

       --ubb, --no-ubb
              Enable or disable the "UBB" X configuration option.

       --use-edid, --no-use-edid
              Enable  or  disable  use   of   the   EDID   (Extended   Display
              Identification Data) from your display device(s).  The EDID will
              be  used  for  driver  operations  such  as  building  lists  of
              available   modes,   determining  valid  frequency  ranges,  and
              computing the DPI (Dots Per Inch).  This option defaults to TRUE
              (the  NVIDIA X driver will use the EDID, when available).  It is
              NOT recommended that you use this option to globally disable use
              of    the    EDID;   instead,   use   '--no-use-edid-freqs'   or
              '--no-use-edid-dpi' to disable specific uses of the EDID.

       --use-edid-dpi, --no-use-edid-dpi
              Enable or disable use of the physical size  information  in  the
              display  device's  EDID,  if  any,  to compute the DPI (Dots Per
              Inch) of the X screen.  This option defaults to TRUE (the NVIDIA
              X  driver  uses  the  EDID's  physical  size, when available, to
              compute the DPI).

       --use-edid-freqs, --no-use-edid-freqs
              Enable or disable use of the HorizSync  and  VertRefresh  ranges
              given  in  a display device's EDID, if any.  EDID provided range
              information will override the HorizSync and  VertRefresh  ranges
              specified  in the Monitor section.  This option defaults to TRUE
              (the NVIDIA X driver will use  frequency  information  from  the
              EDID, when available).

       --use-display-device=DISPLAY-DEVICE, --no-use-display-device
              Force the X driver to use the display device specified.

       --use-events, --no-use-events
              Enable  or  disable  "UseEvents" X configuration option. Setting
              this option will enable the X driver to use the system events in
              some cases when it is waiting for the hardware. With this option
              X driver sets an  event  handler  and  waits  for  the  hardware
              through the poll() system call. This option defaults to FALSE.

       --virtual=WIDTHxHEIGHT, --no-virtual
              Specify the virtual screen resolution.

       --x-prefix=X-PREFIX
              The  X  installation  prefix;  the default is /usr/X11R6/.  Only
              under rare circumstances should this option be needed.

       --xinerama, --no-xinerama
              Enable or disable Xinerama.

       --color-space=COLORSPACE, --no-color-space
              Enable or disable the "ColorSpace" X configuration option. Valid
              values for "COLORSPACE" are: "RGB" and "YCbCr444".

       --color-range=COLORRANGE, --no-color-range
              Sets  the  "ColorRange" X configuration option. Valid values for
              "COLORRANGE" are: "Full" and "Limited".

       --3dvision-usb-path=3DVISION-USB-PATH
              Set this option to specify the sysfs path of the  connected  USB
              dongle.

       --3dvisionpro-config-file=3DVISIONPRO-CONFIG-FILE
              Set  this option to specify the NVIDIA 3DVisionPro configuration
              file. Ensure X server has a read and write access permissions to
              this  file.  NVIDIA  X  driver  stores  the  hub and the pairing
              configuration in this file to re-use across X restarts. If  this
              option  is  not provided, 3D VisionPro configuration will not be
              stored.

       --3dvision-display-type=3DVISION-DISPLAY-TYPE,   --no-3dvision-display-
       type
              When  NVIDIA  3D  Vision  is  enabled with a non 3D Vision ready
              display, use this option to  specify  the  display  type.  Valid
              values are: 0 (Assume it is a CRT), 1 (Assume it is a DLP) and 2
              (Assume it is a DLP TV and enable the checkerboard output).

       --base-mosaic, --no-base-mosaic
              Enable or disable the "BaseMosaic" X configuration option.

       --restore-original-backup
              Restore a backup of the X configuration that was made before any
              changes  were  made  by  nvidia-xconfig,  if  such  a  backup is
              available. This type of backup is made by nvidia-xconfig  before
              it  modifies  an X configuration file that it has not previously
              touched; this is assumed to be  an  X  configuration  file  that
              predates  the involvement of the NVIDIA X driver. As an example,
              nvidia-xconfig  will   copy   an   X   configuration   file   at
              /etc/X11/xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.nvidia-xconfig-original
              the first time it makes changes to that file.

       --allow-empty-initial-configuration,          --no-allow-empty-initial-
       configuration
              Allow the X server to start even if no connected display devices
              could be detected.

       --inband-stereo-signaling, --no-inband-stereo-signaling
              Enable or disable the  "InbandStereoSignaling"  X  configuration
              option.

       --force-yuv-420, --no-force-yuv-420
              Enable  or  disable the "ForceYUV420" X configuration option. If
              the current display and GPU both support uncompressed RGB  4:4:4
              output  and  YUV  4:2:0 compressed output with the current mode,
              then RGB 4:4:4 output is selected by default. This option forces
              the use of YUV 4:2:0 output (where supported) instead.

       --force-composition-pipeline=FORCE-COMPOSITION-PIPELINE,    --no-force-
       composition-pipeline
              Enable or disable the "ForceCompositionPipeline" X configuration
              option.

       --force-full-composition-pipeline=FORCE-FULL-COMPOSITION-PIPELINE,
       --no-force-full-composition-pipeline
              Enable   or   disable   the   "ForceFullCompositionPipeline"   X
              configuration option.

       --allow-hmd=ALLOW-HMD, --no-allow-hmd
              Enable or disable the "AllowHMD" X configuration option.

EXAMPLES
       nvidia-xconfig
              Reads  an existing X config file and adapts it to use the NVIDIA
              driver.  If no X config file can be found, a new one is  created
              at /etc/X11/XF86Config with default settings.

       nvidia-xconfig --post-tree --metamode-orientation=clone
              Reads    the   existing   X   configuration   file,   adds   the
              MetaModeOrientation option, and then prints the resulting config
              file  to  standard  out in tree form.  The configuration file is
              not modified.

       nvidia-xconfig --enable-all-gpus
              Examines the system and configures an X screen for each  display
              device it finds.

       nvidia-xconfig --mode=1600x1200
              Adds a 1600x1200 mode to an existing X configuration.

       nvidia-xconfig --mode-list=1600x1200 1280x1024
              Removes  any  existing  modes  from  the  X  configuration file,
              replacing them with "1600x1200" and "1280x1024".

       nvidia-xconfig --metamodes=1024x768 +0+0, 1024x768 +1024+0
              Adds the MetaMode  "1024x768  +0+0,  1024x768  +1024+0"  to  the
              existing  X configuration file, replacing any existing MetaModes
              X configuration option.

       nvidia-xconfig --only-one-x-screen --sli=Auto
              Configures the X server to have just one X screen that will  use
              SLI when available.
