Refresh rate resets after boot

Hi the title is self explanatory, i set my monitor at 144hz every boot and when i restart it again i find the monitor at 60hz. Is there a solution or a workaround?

Tried and didnt work, probably have to replace vga with my display port, am i right?
Edit: sadly didnt work even with display port.

#!/bin/sh xrandr --output DisplayPort-0 --mode "2560x1440_144.00"

Do it the right way.

BTW, how did you do it?
And why did you exclude Graphics report from inxi?

Just didnt wait too much, ill fix it.
About the answer of how did you do it, normally i just set the res and rate in the preferences, with .xprofile i just created the file in ~ and i copied the text

type xrandr -q to find out what you need to put after "--output".

Then try this:

xrandr --output your_output --mode your_resolution --rate your_refresh_rate

If after reboot the parameters are not correct, you can always set the above command as a script and set it to run automatically at boot through the system settings (not the most clean solution but it will work).

Tried this command too, precisely xrandr --output DisplayPort-0 --mode 2560x1440 --rate 144.01 and works in terminal but if i put it on ./.xprofile doesnt change anything.
Edit: Ok after another boot seems to work at least this time.

If you used KDE settings and it won't keep the settings after logout or reboot, you have to post a bug report at KDE bug tracker, so they can fix it.
Unless the reason the setting is not kept is because of another user or application error or conflict.
Anyway, you should report it upstream.
