    - startx as user is not supported (ootb) by opensuse
    - you have an hybrid graphics device ... uninstall the regular nvidia driver and install bumblebee ... follow the smithfarm directions

    What about sudo user?

    Oh, sorry - I already installed bumblebee drivers. And I reinstall them - the problem persists.

    Remove the xorg.conf file, the one you have will not work and you shouldn't need one at all.

    No. That would be like login as root. Root is the only user that can use
    startx, out of the box. If you want to use startx as plain user, just
    read the "/etc/permissions.local" file and decide.

    But even when the system is modified so that startx runs, several
    features of the desktops will fail, because they depend on the display
    manager. For instance, using usb flash sticks.
