opera developer /dev/nvidia0 (Operation not permitted)

  • Hi

    After running opera-developer from bash on ubuntu 12.04 I got message:
    NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0 (Operation not permitted)

    Opera starts to read quite often from the disk which slows down browser.
    How i can fix it ?
    Which permissions needs nvidia to run it properly ?
