15. Graphics Drivers
Note that there's no need to install the below non-free video drivers, if the free drivers used by default work for your needs.
||Before proceeding make sure your system is fully updated.
Click on the button corresponding to your Nvidia graphics card to install the driver with 1-click install.
Afterwards reboot your computer.
15.1.1 Install Nvidia Driver in the Terminal
You can install the Nvidia driver in the terminal instead if you prefer.
First add the repository:
zypper addrepo -f http://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/12.3/ nvidia
Then install the package which corresponds to your graphics card:
For GeForce 8 and later
zypper install x11-video-nvidiaG03
For GeForce 6 and later
zypper install x11-video-nvidiaG02
zypper install x11-video-nvidiaG01
For GeForce 4 and older
zypper install x11-video-nvidia
For Radeon HD5xxx and later
For Radeon HD2xxx to HD4xxx
For ATI cards older than HD2xxx your only option is to stick with the default free driver.
The 3D drivers for Intel graphics cards are free software, and can therefore be included in openSUSE out of the box. No additional installation or configuration is needed.
