    How do you change the graphics driver with KDE Opensuse V13.1?

    "nouveau" got installed and I want to try the nVidia driver


    OS_Type: openSUSE 13.1 (Mantis) 64 bit
    Kernel: 3.11.10-7-desktop x86_64 (64 bit)
    KDE 4.11.5

    Thank you.

    Add the NVIDIA repo in Yast -Software Repositories
    Then Yast-Software Management search for NVIDIA install the drivers

    Note there are several flavors of NVIDIA packages with numbers in them like GO1,GO2,GO3 Which to use depends on which exact card/chip set you have. Which you did not tell us.

    Also there is one package that must match your kernel. This is normally the Desktop kernel if you have not changed it and did a standard install.

    You can be sure by running

    Code:
    uname -r
