nVidia GeForce 8800GT

Hello everyone,

first of all i would like to say thanks too all the members who helped me get started with SuSE11.0. I just finished installing it and my first impression is "WOW" I LOVE IT!

I have a small problem though, my desktop icons, my firefox screen, everything is kinda blurry as if my drivers for my video card are not installed, how can I install them? I have a nVidia 8800GT Video card and a Samsung SyncMaster 225BW 22" Plasma screen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

This is the official way from the openSUSE website.

The blurriness could be caused by anti-aliasing. The setting for anti-aliasing depends what desktop or window manager.

FYI, The SyncMaster 225BW 22 inch screen is an LCD. It is not a plasma.
