    How to install nvidia graphic driver on asus vivobook max x541nc?


    Hello i'm new OpenSUSE user and i have a question about installing nvidia graphic driver on asus vivobook max x541nc.
    i used Manjaro, Arch, and Ubuntu based linux distributions before and on Manjraro and Arch, i had the problem when i install nvidia graphic driver my pc won't boot, but on
    Ubuntu based Distibutions i was able to go to Driver Manager and just install it from there and it works prfectly.
    Thats why i need your help to install nvidia driver on OpenSUSE because i dont want to do anything on my own and mess up my Linux Installation.
    on Ubuntu based distros after installing nvidia graphic driver, when i open nvidia x settings i have two options nvidia high performance mode and Intel power saving mode.
    When i was on Manjaro my friend has told me that i should install optimus drivers because my laptop might be using optimus tehnology but that didnt work i also have to mention that
    when i had Windows 10 installed it did automatically detected drivers and installed both Intel and Nvidia so i really don't know what to do and how to install drivers on OpenSUSE.

    Hi, welcome to these forums
    Let's first make sure you indeed have an Optimus configuration. Please show
    Code:
    sudo lspci

    Hi and welcome to the openSUSE Forums.
    Your laptop seems similar to one I'm using and it is indeed likely that it has an Optimus architecture;(EDIT: your last post while I was typing confirms that).
    You should be able to install and use openSUSE out of the box without any Nvidia driver; you can use DRI_PRIME to engage the Nvidia chip through the Nouveau driver installed as default.
    Just open a terminal and issue a command like (for instance):
    Code:
    DRI_PRIME=1 glxinfo
    to engage the Nvidia chip and
    Code:
    DRI_PRIME=0 glxinfo
    to see the same with the Intel integrated graphics.
    If that doesn't suit you, you have two choices depending on what you really need to do via the Nvidia graphics:
    - install Bumblebee ( please see https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_Bumblebee )
    - install SUSE Prime (please see https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_SUSE_Prime ).
    Please be aware that installing Nvidia drivers on openSUSE might be less straightforward than with some other distro (notably Ubuntu and Fedora), so be prepared to open a terminal and tweak your install if something doesn't work as expected.

    I want to play some games on my nvidia gpu, but it uses intel gpu, fps is around 40, on ubuntu based distros i was able to get around 120 with Nvidia gpu
    so i want to do same on OpenSUSE because i'm going to use SUSE as my daily driver.

    i remember when i did "suddo zypper dup" having to accept this
    idk does this means something but it might be useful info to know.

    Code:
    In order to install 'Mesa-dri-nouveau', you must agree to terms of the following
     license agreement:
    
    WARNING: Nouveau DRI/3D driver selected.
    
    This driver is considered experimental and is known to have issues with
    applications that use certain 3D acceleration features of modern
    NVIDIA hardware.
    
    Symptoms include application crashes or lockups & crashes of your system's
    graphical environment. Older Hardware and less demanding applications may work
    just fine and do benefit from the Hardware acceleration features this driver
    offers over software emulation.
    
    Use of this driver is especially not recommended for use with the KDE Desktop
    Environment or Qt-based Applications.
    
    The hardware vendor potentially offers alternative drivers.
    
    Please click "Accept" if you accept the risks that may come with the
    installation of this driver. Choose "Cancel"  to prevent installation
    of the driver and use software emulation instead.

    Not sure about the latest Ubuntu, but a couple of years ago comparable results were available installing SUSE Prime on the same HW.
    Please be aware that on Tumbleweed:
    - you need to logout and login again to change the GPU in use when using SUSE Prime (the same was true with Ubuntu if I recall correctly, though);
    - Tumbleweed is a rolling distro with quite frequent kernel updates and this might cause occasional hiccups with Nvidia drivers not updated at the same time.
    So if you are prepared to giving up gaming occasionally, Tumbleweed and SUSE Prime may be a viable solution.
    I would not recommend TW on a "game station" unless you are prepared to tweak your system a few times a year...

    • i got this reddit help from VortexAcherontic

      on reddit but it didnt worked, i did "prime-select nvidia" in terminal it told me to reboot to apply changes and i did. then i did "prime-select" nvidia again to make sure it works and output is shown on this picture: https://i.imgur.com/1cweJYA.png and i tought it works, but when i fire up Minecraft for example it still uses Intel gpu as shown on this picture: https://i.imgur.com/U8Cpp0A.png




      1. Enable the NVidia repository (if not already)


      • YaST

      • Software Repositoreis

      • Add

      • Community-Repositories

      • NVIDIA repository

    • Install or Remove software

    • install suse-prime (or suse-prime-bbswitch if you want to use power management on your GPU so that it is turned off if it is not used)

    • Reboot

    After this you should be able to switch GPUs by typing either:

    Code:
    prime-select nvidia
    or

    Code:
    prime-select intel
    There is a KDE widget to toggle GPUs via UI but that one didn't worked for me right in the past so I avoid it.

    Hi
    Did you install the nvidia driver? Can you show the output from the following;

    Code:
    uname -a
    /sbin/modinfo nvidia |grep filename
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | egrep -A3 "VGA|Display|3D"
    If your system is up to date (20200116) and running the 5.4.10-1-default, hopefully the nvidia driver is working as it's only built for the old kernel.....
