1 When setting up the X server and the proprietary ndivia driver, as
2 described here (, I
3 emerged nvidia-settings, as suggested in the wiki article, The drivers
4 can be installed with the *gtk* USE flag set in /etc/portage/make.conf.
5 This will install *media-video/nvidia-settings*, a handy graphical tool
6 for monitoring and configuring several aspects of your nVidia card.
8 The version of the nvidia driver and nvidia settings I emerged is:
9 box0=; equery list '*'|grep nvidia-driver
10 x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-319.32
12 I then emerged xfce4 as well as the xfce4-sensors-plugin (box0=; equery
13 list '*'|grep xfce4-sensors-plugin
14 xfce-extra/xfce4-sensors-plugin-1.2.5), which pulled in nvidia-settings
15 of an older version:
16 box0=; equery list '*'|grep nvidia-settings
17 media-video/nvidia-settings-304.60
19 I had a look at the xfce4-sensors-plugin ebuild, and found
20 nvidia-settings listed as a dependency, with no version specified.
22 RDEPEND=">=x11-libs/gtk+-2.14:2
23 >=xfce-base/libxfce4ui-4.8
24 >=xfce-base/xfce4-panel-4.8
25 hddtemp? ( app-admin/hddtemp net-analyzer/gnu-netcat )
26 libnotify? ( >=x11-libs/libnotify-0.7 )
27 lm_sensors? ( >=sys-apps/lm_sensors-3.1.0 )
28 video_cards_nvidia? ( media-video/nvidia-settings )"
30 I now seem to have both versions of nvidia-settings installed.
32 How do I fix that please?
34 Thanks.
