14. 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.

14.1 Nvidia
This section describes two different ways of installing the proprietary Nvidia graphics driver, either using 1-click installation or using the terminal.

14.1.2 Install the Nvidia Driver in the Terminal
You can install the Nvidia driver in the terminal. By using this method you don't need to know your graphics card model or series.

First add the repository:
zypper addrepo -f nvidia

The following command should automatically install the correct driver for your card:
zypper install-new-recommends --repo

When installation is done reboot the computer.

14.2 ATI/AMD
The free software drivers included by default should work very well for most. For some newer cards you may need a proprietary driver, see:

14.3 Intel
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.
