    Default Problems installing proprietary NVIDIA drivers

    I recently upgraded from LEAP 42.1 to TUMBLEWEED but I've not been able to install the proprietary NVIDIA drivers. I followed the Easy way to get NVIDIA drivers/Using zypper on this page: https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_drivers. After running
    Code:
    zypper install-new-recommends
    nothing gets installed.

    You need sudo probably:
    Code:
    sudo zypper install-new-recommends

    Apparently the "new-recommend" part doesn't work. Please note that only the G04 driver is available for Tumbleweed, so please check that your graphics card is compatible with that.
    Try adding the repo ( https://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/tumbleweed/x86_64/ ) and installing the driver manually via YaST Software or zypper.
