Apologies if this has been covered before.

After playing Minecraft my Nvidia Settings are reset. Bit of a pain to keep altering my .conf file and resetting every time. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Are you playing MC in full screen or windowed mode? Which mode does it do it in?

I don't pretend to know much about Minecraft, other than there are a number of issues regarding this on Google as you mentioned. I see a lot of references to LWGJL if that means anything to you. Perhaps try to get a newer or patched version of that or, run Minecraft in windowed mode, then maximize it to fullscreen via the title bar. It won't be true fullscreen so it will have a border, albeit a few pixels off true full :)

Yes, I will still have a delve around.. Seems to be common like you say.. Windowed mode is fine full screen. If I do cure it i'll let you know. Thanks for the sugestions.  :D

On updating to the latest kernel 4.1.0 it seems to have stopped resetting my nvidia settings.. However I do now get screen tearing in vlc player. But a quick reboot cures the problem.  :)

Screen tearing in VLC in linux is pretty common to, you can eliminate it on LL by reading this - https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/tutorials/linux-lite-2-0-is-great-compton-makes-it-even-better-%28with-nvidia-drivers%29/ see my Reply #4 for the start up command.

Thanks for sharing your fix (4.1 kernel) :)

I'll take a look if the problem persists thanks. I found a thread on a linux mint forum that said if you add this line to you xorg.conf file it eliminates the screen tearing instantly. I tried it and it works perfectly.

 The default is : Option "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0

Change to : Option "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0 { ForceFullCompositionPipeline = On }"

I'ts the only thing I could find at he time to stop the screen tearing. But will try the compton fix you suggeted also.  8)

I would do the compton fix first, since it is already confirmed to work on LL.

I don't know if this will work for you, but try it. Don't use the F11 for fullscreen, instead right click on the top bar of the MC screen and click on the Fullscreen option.
