    Driver downloaded from the NVidia site.
    Source file:
    NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-430.34.run

    Which provider? (sorry, I don't understand what you are asking for)

    Question:
    How do you install the graphic driver? Repo or the run-file?

    Also show:
    Code:
    nvidia-settings -v
    (graphics installled from run file downloaded from NVidia site)

    From your first suggestion, I now can get into GUI. (just need to fix resolution) So, I'm going to work on the system some more and see if this is totally fixed. I will report back later.

    Thank you,

    Wait a minute – originally, you seem to have mentioned that, the GUI was running OK with the default openSUSE NVidia driver …

    What happens to the GUI if, you revert to the openSUSE default Leap 15.1 installation?

    I have a suspicion that, the original issue with GNU Backgammon not displaying, is due to an unresolved dependency which arose during the Leap 15.0 to Leap 15.1 upgrade …

    Hi
    Why 430.34, latest is 440.44? The Leap 15.1 rpms (G05) should work fine as well...

    I have the 440.44 running fine with a GT710 card and Leap 15.1 with Gnome DE.

    To install the drivers, I use;

    Code:
    systemctl set-default multi-user.target
    systemctl reboot
    ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-440.44.run -aq
    systemctl set-default graphical.target
    systemctl reboot
    But from your lspci output it seems the driver is working...?

    I am back to normal operations. Since you were so kind to reply, allow me to respond. The GUI was working fine in 15.0, but I had problems going to 15.1 . What it came down to was my "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" file was messing things up. Renaming the xorg.conf file to something else, and letting the system do its thing worked. I only had to reset the desktop video resolution and I'm back in normal operation.

    I'm going to try to work with the folks on the gbg mailing list since they seem to be aware of the problem....or I can just add some time to the rest of my day to do things other than play games. Hmmmm.....I'll have to ponder that .

    Thank you for the help,

    I'm saying that this is solved. Moving "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" out of the way (I renamed it) allowed the system to discover the hardware and get everything booting properly. Then all I had to do was to reset the resolution from 640 X 480 to 1280 X 1040 (that's what my hardware supports) and all is well.

    Thank you to everyone who helped me with this.
