/dev/nvidiactl is a tool for individual (non-root) users to control

Try it out - I think that could fix your desktop effects problem.

Unfortunately, no. The ONLY desktop effect I get is when I click on the
top border of a window, it becomes semi-transparent. It stays this way
while I move it. Nothing more. I have tried a new user just in case
something is odd in my directory. Nothing works.

I am convinced the window manager is the problem. It is kwin (4.2.4 (KDE
4.2.4) "release 2"). The card is an NVIDIA "GeForce 9400 GT/PCI/SSE2"
running NVIDIA driver "3.0.0 NVIDIA 185.18.14".

You could be right, it could be the window manager or something else
in the KDE. If you don't mind wasting some time, potentially, you
might try playing with the newest KDE, KDE 4.3 (OpenSuSE has it under
"Factory", I think).

I was thinking of doing that. I would like to sort out the set of
repositories that should work together as a unit:


For a new NVIDIA card supported by the current NVIDIA driver, should X11
be Xorg or Xgl? Or both? There is the one-click install, but that does
not obsolete older repositories. Or even change the priority of the
stuff installed to be greater than whatever was already there.

I have:


All with a priority of 99. The 11.1 original distribution and updates
have a priority of 100.

Anyone have this sorted?
