NVIDIA Driver Problems / Start program when X starts up
OK I will start out by saying I am farely new to the linux world. I have just recently began to experiment with it. But I am having two problems:
1.) The first problem I am having is that I can not update the drivers for my GeForce 440mx 64mb pci card. I am attempting to update using the YaST Online Update utility which is very straighforward and easy to use, however when it begins to actually install the driver, the total progress is halted at 50% and it will not advance any further. I don't know if I should download an RPM and attempt to install that way or what the deal is, but any help would be appreciated.
2.) My second problem involves a program called synergy. This program allows me to control both my linux box and my windows box via one mouse and keyboard. I run the server on my windows pc and then the linux box is used as a client. I have to type in /usr/bin/synergyc <iphere> in order to activate the linux box as a client. Well I was curious if there was a way to allow this program to start when KDE loads up. Things that I have already tried are:
A.) edit /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/92xprint-xpserverlist.sh by
adding /usr/bin/synergyc <iphere> to the end of the file.
B.) I also tried editing /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession
and /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config by adding the same line to
Help on these two issues would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for any responses to this post.
