Google Earth problem in Lenovo P51


I installed Leap 42.3 and then newest Google Earth.
Everything else works fine, but view-window shrinks image inch by inch sized it top left corner of view window. Rest of the area is an image of my Desktop.

There was a same problem with ATI Radeon graphics card and they managed to fixi it by ATI specific way.

I first installed Google Earth by “rpm -ihv <package_name>.rpm”. Package was downloaded from Google. Later I’ve uninstalled and re-installed it with Yast.
According to previous thread here are some information:
Lenovo P51, 16 GB RAM, nVidia Quadro M1200 with 512 MB, i7 CPU.

GlxGears works. System installation is brand new and up to date. Home directory was copied from old OpenSUSE 13.2 as it was.

Does anyone know solution to this problem with nVidia Quadro?


IIRC Earth doesn’t play nicely with nouveau. If Earth is a requirement for your daily desktop usage, install and use the NVIDIA proprietary drivers.
