Resolution changed but message displayed: xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default

No problems with Nvidia GUI tool.

All work for changing between resolutions: xrandr and gnome-display-properties and nvidia-settings

Also getting the message "xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default." when run from terminal. Result is same from nvidia GUI: there are window redrawing issues after resolution change as describes by vegancorr and requist

xrandr and nvidia GUI behaved identically. I got the message "xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default." and I had the redrawing issue requist had too ("the screen was in many cases not redrawn/reset. I had to move windows or switch screen to actually see my correct screen.")

Resolution switching works perfectly with both xrandr and nvidia-settings

Works just fine using xrandr and nvidia

It works with xrandr but with nvidia GUI config tool I had a compiz crash.

"xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default." in terminal but resolution change worked in both terminal and nvidia settings

I too had:

xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default. Though resolutions did successfully change.

I was able to change the resolution easily with the xrandr command, but the terminal output said:
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default.
Not sure if this would be considered a bug considering everything appeared to work fine.

Works pretty well.

Settings resolution with xrandr works with nvidia. After changing resolution compiz crashed once, but after compiz restart all works.
