Your answer is disheartening :-(
I have never used Suse if it were Ubuntu I would recommend using a 
proprietary driver which has become open source since 2022, but frankly 
I don't feel like recommending it on a system I don't know.

If Benoit has not an idea, I think Franco have to adapt to closing the 
terminal and that's it.

Thank you very much.
