How to install Driver Nvidia (

I download driver Nvidia form

directory of download is desktop.

How to install it ?

thank you.

Alright so here is how to install the nvidia driver manually, in case the one in the repo doesn’t work or u just want to use the latest.

Go to Yast>Software>Software Management

Search for and install if you don’t have these:


Now download the latest Nvidia driver:

Place the file in your /home/username

Now restart and at the boot screen, pause the boot by moving the down button, then move back up and clear any text in the boot arguments by holding backspace. Then just type the number: 3

At the login

Type “root” then enter and then your root password and press enter. (without the quotes)

now type
cd /home/username

*Now remember you can use the {TAB} key to auto complete

so type:
and the whole file name should auto complete

eg: sh

Follow the installer and let it compile the kernel module for you.
Say Yes to everything
Use TAB to move around

Btw Caf4926 is correct,but, omitted to say, move the file from your desktop to a folder/place in your /home, otherwise the cd command will need to be altered


I did quote:

Place the file in your /home/username
