GLX support in root account but not for users
Hava installed the latest NVIDIA drivers via the tar files but now I only have glx support in the root account and not for any of my other user accounts.
I know it is a permissions issue but dont know how to fix this please help.

look in the nvidia readme. everything is described there.
in sec-04 FAQ
A: It is likely that a security module for the PAM system may be
changing the permissions on the NVIDIA device files. In most cases
this security system works, but it can get confused. To correct this
problem it is recommended that you disable this security feature.
Different Linux distributions have different files to control this;
please consult with your distributor for the correct method of
disabling this security feature. As an example, if your system has
then you should edit the file and remove the line that starts with
"<dri>" (we have also received reports that additional references to
<dri> in console.perms must be removed, but this has not been verified
by NVIDIA). If instead your system has the file
then you should edit the file and remove the line that lists
/dev/nvidiactl. The above steps will prevent the PAM security system
from modifying the permissions on the NVIDIA device files. Next,
you will need to reset the permissions on the device files back
to their original permissions and owner. You can do that with the
chmod 0666 /dev/nvidia* chown root /dev/nvidia*
