    Hi and welcome to the Forum
    It's better to use gnomesu or kdesu as your user eg;
    Code:
    kdesu nvidia-settings

    Save yourself a ton of headaches.

    Update to a recent (260.16 and later?) driver from the nVidia repository (either configure as a YAST/Zypper repository or d/l direct from nVidia).

    This should automatically install the nVidia Configuration Manager tool which will address all multi-monitor configs plus a lot more (manually tuning, temp, more).

    HTH,
    Tony
