    Default KDE strangeness

    Hi guys,
    I just installed OPENSuSe 11.1 on a new Intel Core Duo machine, IP43 MOBO and some sort of a graphics cards that reports as
    NVidia GeForce 8400 GS
    The monitor
    VESA 1600X1200@60HZ
    It's a 24" BENQ.

    I am trying to turn on the 3D effects to use the cute cube, but even the options to enable this seem not to exist. All greyed out.
    On the SaX211 Configuration the enable 3D acceleration is greyed out and on the user configure desktop, all enable effects are greyed out... What gives? I'll keep on googleing, but lazy man looking for an easy answer. After all, it's Friday and I want to knock off for the day ;-)

    Cheers,
    Mark.

    Ah, thanks mate. I just installed the drivers, all went smoothly, well the enable things came up ready to play! I still can't seem to get that cute box up. I'll keep having a play. Must be something I'm missing...

    Cheers,
    Mark.
