-v, --version
       Print the nvidia-settings version and exit.
-h, --help
       Print usage information and exit.
       Use the configuration file CONFIG rather than the default ~/.nvidia-settings-rc
-c, --ctrl-display=CTRL-DISPLAY
       Control  the  specified X display.  If this option is not given, then nvidia-settings will control
       the display specified by '--display' ; if  that  is  not  given,  then  the  $DISPLAY  environment
       variable is used.
-l, --load-config-only
       Load  the  configuration  file, send the values specified therein to the X server, and exit.  This
       mode of operation is useful to place in your xinitrc file, for example.
-n, --no-config
       Do not load the configuration file.  This mode of  operation  is  useful  if  nvidia-settings  has
       difficulties starting due to problems with applying settings in the configuration file.
-r, --rewrite-config-file
       Write  the  X  server  configuration  to  the  configuration  file, and exit, without starting the
       graphical user interface.  See EXAMPLES section.
-V, --verbose=VERBOSE
       Controls how much information is printed.  By default, the verbosity  is  errors  and  only  error
       messages  are  printed.   Valid  values  are 'none' (do not print messages), 'errors' (print error
       messages), 'warnings' (print error and warning messages), and  'all'  (print  error,  warning  and
       other informational messages).
-a, --assign=ASSIGN
       The ASSIGN argument to the '--assign' command line option is of the form:
-a FSAA=5
-a localhost:0.0/DigitalVibrance[CRT-0]=0
-a [gpu:0]/DigitalVibrance[DFP-1]=63
-q, --query=QUERY
       The QUERY argument to the '--query' command line option is of the form:

         {DISPLAY}/{attribute name}[{display devices}]

       This  queries the current value of the attribute {attribute name} on the X Display {DISPLAY}.  The
       syntax is the same as that for the '--assign' option, without '= {value}' ; specify '-q  screens',
       '-q  gpus', '-q framelocks', '-q vcs', '-q gvis', or '-q fans' to query a list of X screens, GPUs,
       Frame Lock devices, Visual Computing Systems, SDI Input Devices, or Fans, respectively,  that  are
       present on the X Display {DISPLAY}.  Specify '-q all' to query all attributes.
-t, --terse
       When  querying  attribute  values  with  the '--query' command line option, only print the current
       value, rather than the more verbose description of  the  attribute,  its  valid  values,  and  its
       current value.
-d, --display-device-string
       When  printing  attribute  values in response to the '--query' option, if the attribute value is a
       display device mask, print the value as a list of display devices (e.g., "CRT-0,  DFP-0"),  rather
       than a hexadecimal bit mask (e.g., 0x00010001).
-g, --glxinfo
       Print GLX Information for the X display and exit.
-e, --describe=DESCRIBE
       Prints  information  about  a particular attribute.  Specify 'all' to list the descriptions of all
       attributes.  Specify 'list' to list the attribute names without a descriptions.
-p, --page=PAGE
       The PAGE argument to the '--page' commandline option selects a  particular  page  in  the  nvidia-
       settings user interface to display upon starting nvidia-settings.  Valid values are the page names
       in the tree view on the left side of the nvidia-settings user interface; e.g.,


nvidia-settings Starts the nvidia-settings graphical interface.
nvidia-settings --load-config-only Loads the settings stored in ~/.nvidia-settings-rc and exits.
nvidia-settings --rewrite-config-file Writes the current X server configuration to ~/.nvidia-settings-rc file and exits.
nvidia-settings --query FSAA Query the value of the full-screen antialiasing setting.
nvidia-settings --assign RedGamma=2.0 --assign BlueGamma=2.0 --assign GreenGamma=2.0 Set the gamma of the screen to 2.0.
