Thread: Installed Nvidia driver-- now annoying splash screen

    Unhappy Installed Nvidia driver-- now annoying splash screen

    I don't know how to get rid of it, so I came here for that answer. I installed the nvidia restricted driver in order to get 3D effects and stuff, but now whenever I boot, just before I log in (I have automatic login set up), I see a gray screen with a big, green Nvidia logo. It wouldn't bother me if it wasn't so ugly. How can I get rid of it? Is there a way to choose which splash screens appear during boot? It's after the regular openSUSE bootsplashes.

    Help?

    Simply run this command as root in terminal.

    Code:
    nvidia-xconfig --no-logo
    Optionally, you can edit the no logo option into your xorg configuration file manually, but I don't remember the option off the top of my head, and this command does the exact same thing.

    Also, on this page it shows that their is a switch to change the logo, but I would sooner just get rid of it.

    er...'annoying'?...did you say 'annoying'?

    I thought it looked beautiful !

    Anyway, that's common with all nvidia drivers under opensuse.

    Yup, pretty! You can install your own custom logo to display too! My main
    system is named 'Saturn', so I made an image with a photo of the planet
    Saturn in it. Seeing the planet when I restart X is a good thing, as it
    means that the nvidia drivers are working, X is coming up properly, and all
    is well.

    Yep, it's there to confirm the nvidia driver is installed and working - not so easy to discern otherwise.

    Question Re: Installed Nvidia driver-- now annoying splash screen

    Does that mean if you are not seeing it the drivers arent working right? My system seems to be working correctly (3D is enabled) but I have no Nvidia splash screen.
    Thank you,

    Difficult to say for sure. My 64bit system shows the logo, while my 32bit
    system does not. Both are working very well. I've not had many problems
    with nvidia cards and drivers, and the few times there were issues, it was
    usually a configuration goof on my part when I tried to set it up by hand. I
    know we all hate the phrase, but... "Works for me!" (tm)

    Did you install both nVidia RPMs via YaST (the only way to go, if you don't want to break it with kernel updates)?

    If so and you don't get the splash screen, I'd say they didn't install correctly.

    I installed through one click when I was following the instructoins to get Compiz/Emerald to work from the openSuse wiki. I thought I was following the instructions. As a noob, is there a command I can input into the terminal to see if it is working or installed right? Thanks for any help.

    Have a peek in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, under Section "Device". If it says Driver "nvidia" there, you should be ok ("nv" would be the Open Source/non-nVidia driver).

    I haven't used Compiz/Emerald or those instructions myself, so I don't know if that would explain why you're not seeing the splash screen.
