Im new with opensuse so if you need information about hardware software please give me command and i will post output, Thank you so much.

Hello and welcome to the openSUSE forums.

Sorry, but it is not quite clear to me what you mean. You show some screen shots with some windows, and say that some app (I think applications programs) are running but do not shown (I assume there is no window open).

Please tell us which application you run and is not shown. How can we know what application you run and is not shown as it is not shown?

Also, please explain which Desktop Environment you are using (KDE, Gnome, Xfce, …). We are nomind readers and the result is that what you do not explain, we do not know. :wink:

Graphics hardware should be all that matters.

inxi -SGxx

reports it, along with your WM and your DE.

I am curious. Do you really see from those images what he means? You seam to have an idea of what the OP expected to see even if he did not describe that. Can you please explain what is obvious to you (and the OP), but not at all to me?

Im using gnome like in screenshot, and if i launch app like welcome i see that :

OK, I understand better now. I also see that you posted what mrmazda asked for.

BTW, you used HTML (the button with <>) around your output. That is already very good, but still better us using CODE (the button # just one step to the left).

This message should be replaced by possibly useful information if you install xdpyinfo. It’s not necessary to repeat now, only if asked for again.

First thing to try is an Xorg session instead of Wayland.

If that doesn’t help, try an IceWM session instead of Gnome.

If that doesn’t help, try a switch from the Nouveau DDX driver to the Modesetting DIX driver, as explained here.

I have a test PC with the same GPU, so will try to replicate if necessary. As yet I don’t have 15.3 on it.

All good its work with Xorg , Thank you so much.

Try this:

sudo zypper in readline-doc

If you get a conflict error message, proceed to install it anyway. If any other failure message appears, report it here.

I think all its fine, thanks fro your quick answer and help , really like it, you are awesome :slight_smile:

Here is the output of the last command :

adem@localhost:~> sudo zypper in readline-doc

And please mark this post as Solved , i dont know how to do, Thanks

When you say so in a post (as you did), that is OK.

Nice you have it running to your liking.

I saw what seemed must be a graphics issue, so asked for graphics hardware, driver, DE and WM info.

More or less intuition I assume. Good intuition though.

Ik had no idea what I was assumed to see. Out of the three important parts of a problem report (what did one do, what did one expect to happen, what did happen instead), I was certainly missing the “what did the OP expect to see” part.

In any case, the OP has a solution now and that is what counts.
