OpenSUSE Tumbleweed nvidia-settings "Failed to set New Fan speed"

For some reason setting fan speed with either GWE or nvidia-settings fails on OpenSUSE Tumbleweed. If I run nvidia- settings with the -V switch I see no errors in the terminal when attempting to set a fan speed.

I have this in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/52-nvidia.conf

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Device0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BoardName      "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070"
    Option         "Coolbits" "4"

Hello , i’ve got the same issue . Are you solved it ?

My workstation works with : startx – vt7


Not exactly a fix. A workaround. I installed lightdm and used yast to switch login managers from gdm to lightdm. GDM and Xorg run rootless on OpenSUSE. Good for security but annoying with nvidia’s driver and software.
