    Thank you, I will start testing with TW.

    Looks appropriate for the devel kernel, which is likely overkill. Probably better to apply that process but use Kernel:/stable instead.

    b) Is it worth once the kernel is upgraded to test other drivers for the NVIDIA card such as the NVIDIA drivers ?
    I have no idea whether you'll find a proprietary NVidia driver matching Kernel:/HEAD or Kernel:/stable. I suspect not. Newer FOSS drivers would come from enabling X11:/XOrg/openSUSE_Leap_15.2 and using the same procedure to install as for Kernel:/HEAD.

    c) Shall I consider checking and perhaps upgrading KDE (plasma or wayland) to a newer version ?
    Negative re KDE/Plasma. Given nrickert's comment about Wayland, I wouldn't expect material help from enabling and upgrading to X11:/Wayland either, but if you're ambitious.... I've yet to attempt to use Wayland, and don't see it happening in the foreseeable future either.

    Note the links I have here provided can be downloaded and copied to /etc/X11/zypp/repos.d/ as a simpler alternative to the zypper ar process commonly described for adding a repo, which creates a new file in that location, subject to typing and consequent errors.
