    Default OpenSuse 42.2 weird graphics issue

    I'm running OpenSuse 42.2. I keep having weird issues. My computer just froze up about 30 minutes ago. Ctrl + Alt + Del or Ctrl + Alt + F# keys wouldn't do anything. I had to hard power it off. Now it's back up but I'm having weird graphics issues. Any app that is minimized distorts when I maximize and minimize it. It's hard to explain exactly what it's doing, so I made a video.

    Please watch and give me ideas what's the cause and how to fix it. You can see in the video where I'm clicking on the taskbar to minimize the app but it's not. Really it is. If I were to drag a window over it, you'd see parts of the window disappear and if I drag enough windows over it and then move them out of the way, the ghost window will disappear.

    Perhaps this applies?

    .5 Nouveau 3D/DRI Driver May Crash KDE Applications Report Bug #

    With openSUSE Leap 42.2, the Nouveau Mesa/DRI driver for 2D/3D rendering is considered experimental. The Nouveau kernel/KMS driver and the Nouveau X.org/DDX driver for 2D rendering are still considered stable.
    When the Nouveau Mesa/DRI driver is in use, some applications may crash, especially KDE and Qt applications. The driver is now in a separate package called Mesa-dri-nouveau, which can be removed in case of problems.
    Without this driver installed, there is no hardware 3D acceleration support on any Nvidia GPU and no 2D acceleration on newer Nvidia GPUs that use Glamor for fast 2D operations. Kernel Mode Setting and basic 2D are still available, as is 2D acceleration via EXA on GPUs from the Nvidia GPU generation code-named Kepler (introduced in 2012) and earlier. 3D operations are supported via software rendering.
    For more information, see the bug reports at https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91632 and https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1005323.

    nouveau does not work well with plasma 5, you need nvidia's propitiatory driver
    add the nvidia repo and install the G04 driver
    Code:
    zypper ar -f ftp://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/leap/42.2/ nvidia
    zypper ref
    zypper inr
    zypper inr should pull the apropriate nvidia driver

    these instructions, after following them and reboot, my computer does not start up... well I can boot into a CLI. I then need to run yast and uninstall everything nvidia and reinstall the nouvea aftermarket nvidia driver. But now when I put in the nouvea, my graphics are still messed up. I have huge black borders around the monitor, the graphics are pathetic and really slow. I have two monitors and one isn't on. But at least I'm at a graphics interface. I also tried to uninstall the nouvea driver when installing the nvidia wondering if they were conflicting, but didn't help.

    what kind of cpu do you have?
    the noveou driver does not work with plasma 5 (or the 3d acceleration)
    tell us your repos
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    1. /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/Create 20-intel.conf
    2. Put:

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Intel Graphics"
    Driver "intel"
    Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"
    EndSection

    If using Intel GPU yes but this is about NVIDIA not Intel

    Back to OP

    Why was nouveau driver removed. Don't do that
