Thanks for the help.
I found this on the Suse website and it fixed my problem:
Depending on how you start SaX2 (as what kind of user), the language will be selected accordingly. For example, the language variable for root is always English and if you start SaX2 as root, the whole SaX2 environment will be in English. If, on the other hand, you start SaX2 as a normal user, SaX2 will be displayed in the corresponding language once you enter the root password.
Proceed as follows to start SaX2 from KDE:
and enter the command
Enter your root password when requested then SaX2 starts. Starting SaX2 in such a way implies that you want to change, adapt, or optimize the existing configuration file /etc/X11/XF86Config.
Now it is working well with better graphics. It also seems to have fixed the speed issues as web browsing is now much faster. Not sure how to explain that improvement by just changing the graphic card setting, but now when I scroll on web pages things go much faster without the delay and hard drive accesses I was getting before. Maybe it is now using the graphic card memory instead of virtual memory?
