My main problem is the nouveau/Plasma5 bug which makes Leap and

please, do not say it with this absoluteness. I am running Leap
42.1 with a nVidia card and the nouveau driver. Plasma 5 works
without flaws. Yes, there are reports about problematic cases,
but do not conclude that every nVidia/nouveau-system is broken.

Sorry, probably should have inserted "some" before "nVidia".

Tried Alt+Shift+F12 to toggle off "desktop effects" in Plasma5 and
it made things much worse so I must have had them off in the first
place. I wish the "Enable special effect at startup" button hadn't
been removed; might have had a clue what the situation was

Configure desktop -> Display and Monitor -> Compositor -> [x] Enable
compositor on startup

Thanks, I had stumbled across this a few weeks ago but had forgotten
where it had been hidden. I daresay that the next time I need it, I
will probably have forgotten its location again. :-(

I guess my next move is to try kernel 4.3-rc7 when it arrives in the
linux-next repo:

Graham Davis, Bracknell, Berks.
openSUSE 13.2 (64-bit); KDE 4.14.9; AMD Phenom II X2 550 Processor;
Kernel: 4.2.5; Video: nVidia GeForce 210 (Driver: nouveau);
Sound: ATI SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)
