Thread: OS 11.0, OpenGL screensavers not full screen

  1. #1

    Default OS 11.0, OpenGL screensavers not full screen

    Hi all,

    After a default installation of opensuse, then installing the nVidia driver, and then enabling the screensavers, I find that the openGL screensavers do not run full screen, but instead run in a box in the top left corner (probably 1/4 screen), with the rest of the screen white.

    Does anyone know a solution to this?

    * velocidex,

    works fine with the driver from the NVidia repo on my 7600GT.
    Make sure the driver used in your xorg.conf is "nvidia"
    Try running the installer from the NVidia site instead of the one from the repo. There have been reports it is working better in some cases.

    I can confirm that nvidia is already listed as the driver in xorg.conf

    Alright is everyone sure its cause of nvidia, anyone with a nvidia card having this? Cause they have close the bug here:

    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug...headAndLogIn=1

    I can't re open it till someone without a nvidia card says he or she has this problem.

    If anyone with a webcam has this problem, then please confirm it:

    The reason for closing the bug was, they don't fix problems with the proprietary NVidia driver. The advice was contacting NVidia.

    Did you try the NVidia installer from their page, as I suggested earlier in the thread?

    the thing is it might not be related to nvidia but if it is then I will wait for the next beta driver then
