I don't know much about SUSE, but isn't there display settings icon in the system tray?
Alternatively, System Settings -> Hardware -> Display and Monitor -> Size and Orientation
Or, perhaps something along the lines of
Code:
xrandr -s 1920x1080

Hm,
so I installed OpenSUSE 13.1 in a VM and here is what I found:

1) In the display configuretion dialog, there's a grey box representing the screen. In the lower part of it are three icons.
Clicking on the one on the right (a white rectangle with four small arrows) opens a dialog that lets you change resolution of your display.

2) There doesn't seem to be an icon in the system tray, but you may add one (right click on the panel -> Panel Options -> add widgets -> Quick Display Configuration, drag it to your panel)

3) typing xrandr -s 1024x768 in a terminal also works.
