A graphical issue, Dolphin and Firefox cannot show picture preview.

I am running Opensuse 11.3, KDE 64 bit. I have a nvidia GeForce 9400 GT graphic card.
Somehow Dolphin and Firefox cannot show picture preview.

It comes out like this; ImageBam - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing

ImageBam - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing

Would anyone know how to solve this?

Did you install the driver?
nVidia Driver via Repo in 11.3 - Guide

No, it just has a custom driver, ImageBam - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing

I will look into the guide, - by the way, do you do everything around here, you just helped me in the multimedia forum… :wink:

Ups… forget that last picture, I think my brain crosswired there…

Whereas this picture is a right picture; - when i following the guide get to Yast/system/etc/sysconfig I get this screen
ImageBam - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing
so I get stuck there…

And did you click on the + by the word system?

Got that, and did it. When I get to

Add the nVidia repo for 11.3: http://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.3/

Now open Yast > Software > Software Managemen

t - you mean I don’t use Yast to add the repo.? How do I do it then…?

You can add the repo like this in a su terminal

zypper ar -f http://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.3/ nvidia

then do

zypper ref

accept key/licence
close terminal

Now open Yast >Software Management - and the driver should be added automatically for install
when done - reboot

Right. Then tell me, when i get to Yast software management, and open the nvidia repo it looks like this

how much of it should I mark and choose. Just the one that is automatically added, og should I mark and install all?

That’s correct let it install as it is

Will do…

And did it, - and that seems to have done it. :slight_smile:

Once again, thanks a lot, caf4926

No problem
Enjoy openSUSE

Hmm and maybe, alas, it is not so simple… Today I have several times experienced that my GUI freezes. First there is like a ripple or a visible glitch, and then it freezes. I can’t access it. I write GUI because behind i can hear and see the machine is working, and afterwards the task may have been done. One time it did it closing down, and i could hear it making its closing down sound, and it closed, - but up until last second the screen remained the desktop. One other time it came back again after the freeze.

I am thinking it might have something to do with installing the nvidia driver…? (or with this? http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-help-here/install-boot-login/446486-unaccessible-not-used-1-2-tb-ghost-ext4-partition-made-during-installation.html)

I pretty sure you are better with the driver than not.

Do this in a terminal

.xsession-errors > xsession.txt

Then go to you user folder and find the file xsession.txt
paste the contents to pastebin
and link us

If I write that, the box answers only:

.xsession-errors: command not found

(that was in the txt file)

Did you copy and paste that code into a terminal?

mm I copied

.xsession-errors > xsession.txt
into the box…

And it made a text in /home saying

.xsession-errors: command not found

View hidden files
right click it and open with kwite
copy contents and paste

Made it show hidden files in dolphin home

Right clicked on xsession.txt, opened it with kwrite

and here is the content:

.xsession-errors: command not found

There was also with hidden files shown, a txt called .xsession-errors
Its content is too long, the forum wont put it
(just put it in a document, its 14 pages long)

Do you want it? I could post it in pieces…
