The nvidia-settings utility is a tool for configuring the NVIDIA
Linux graphics driver.  It operates by communicating with the NVIDIA
X driver, querying and updating state as appropriate.  This
communication is done with the NV-CONTROL X extension.
Values such as brightness and gamma, XVideo attributes, temperature,
and OpenGL settings can be queried and configured via nvidia-settings.
