    From the menu, look for sax2
    Run it

    Or maybe you just need to install a graphics driver. Main ones here
    NVIDIA - openSUSE
    ATI - openSUSE
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    Lets see what you have. In a terminal do

    Code:
    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Code:
    hwinfo --gfxcard
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    You have to use the nvidia-settings as su and save your configuration.

    Another thing is if your monitor has an auto image adjust button you can use it to automatically put your screen image in place.
