Thread: Nvidia for OpenSuse 13.1 KDE 64Bit

    Default Nvidia for OpenSuse 13.1 KDE 64Bit

    Hi! I have been struggling installing Nvidia for my my graphic -card 9400GT and I found this URL http://software.opensuse.org/ymp/hom...kms-nvidia.ymp
    thanks to Knurph very helpful... But i was in need for a better resolution than 1024X768 for my Asus monitor VK248 so i had to add a new script-file that I now have borrowed from PCLinuxOS 2013 64bit with Nvidida graphic system..
    The file I found that had a solution was xorg.conf so I put that script file into the map /etc/X11 as root here in OpenSuse 13.1 KDE 64bit that made it possible to manage better resolution ie 1920X1080 and 1600X900 etc

    Best regards CUA

    i did "the hard way" two weeks ago, better than going to unsafe repo IMHO.
    but anyone know why there is not yet a official nvidia repositorie?
    according to this.....
    SDB:NVIDIA drivers - openSUSE

    You can use nvidia-settings (included with the nvidia driver) to create an xorg.conf with your own specific settings. If you want to save the resulting xorg.conf to /etc/X11/ directly, you would have to run it as root though.
    In KDE:
    Code:
    kdesu nvidia-settings
    or in GNOME:
    Code:
    gnomesu nvidia-settings
    or in any DE:
    Code:
    xdg-su -c nvidia-settings

    The repo's mine, it's not unsafe to use the package. In fact, it does "the hard way" for you.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.
