I recently installed the Nvidia drivers for my Geforce Gtx 1050 on OpenSuse Leap 42.3, but the drivers are not being used and instead it uses always the Mesa drivers.
I simply followed this tutorial https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_drivers where you install the drivers through the repositories and everything worked fine and the drivers even show as being installed in the Nvidia panel, but I cannot get them to be used.
The installation automatically created an nvidia-default.conf where it added “blacklist nouveau” to disable the nouveau drivers, which apparently does not work. After reading some tutorials I tried adding that line manually in different conf files with additions like “nomodeset” etc, but all did not work, it seems whatever I enter in the configs gets ignored.
I also have an onboard GPU called Intel HD 4000 which comes with the i7 processors, if that matters at all.
So any ideas?
