    Not recognized.But from 'Xorg.0.log' I am assuming X11.
    You need to install 'inxi' first.
    Code:
    zypper in inxi
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5

    will demonstrate what I meant by more verbosely. Here the result is 156 lines. Driver in use prepends each (0) in the output. Meanwhile,
    Code:
    inxi -Gxx
    looks thus:
    Code:
    Graphics:  Device-1: Intel 4th Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics driver: i915 v: kernel
               bus ID: 00:02.0 chip ID: 8086:041e
               Display: server: X.Org 1.18.3 driver: modesetting unloaded: fbdev,vesa alternate: intel
               resolution: 1920x1200~60Hz
               OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Haswell v: 4.3 Mesa 17.0.5 compat-v: 3.0 direct render: Yes
    which shows not only kernel and X drivers in use, but also available alternative X drivers, among other potentially useful troubleshooting info.

    I suggest also doing
    Code:
    zypper in command-not-found
    to prompt a useful next step when a command someone trying to help you asked you to run doesn't seem to have been fruitful.

    Thanks deano_ferrari and mrmazda, more lessons learned.

    I changed to XRender yesterday, but it doesn't show up in the above.
    I colored the red stuff, it came out pale in the console.

    I can now print with openSuSe Leap! Can Scan now, could be better!!

    OOPS! forgot to add up above that it still takes a break, but not as long as it had been doing. Sometimes fractions of a second, sometimes just over a minute.
    Still disconcerting.
