Storing xvidtune settings?

Anyone know how I can keep my settings for xvidtune? I keep on having to move the monitor display to the right through that program, but it doesn't seem to keep the settings if I kill X, because then I have to run the program over again. I've tried running it in the root account, as user, as su, and I'm running out of ideas. I tried finding the lines in /etc/X11/XF86config but I can't find the sync lines that would match up....

Result of xvidtune you have to insert into XF86config as "ModeLine" parameter in "screen" section. Now I don't use this option, so I don't remember and can't tell you details, but it is well documented in man page for XF86config.

Run xvidtune from a terminal. Configure the way you want, then click 'Show'. The values for a Modeline will appear on the terminal you ran xvidtune from. Insert this in your /etc/X11/XF86Config:

Modeline [what xvidtune gave you]

Do a search here on modelines, you will eventually find people who posted their XF86Config. Use those to know where to put the line.
