View Full Version : [ubuntu] blender and opengl not working right..

March 13th, 2009, 10:26 PM
Hi, my blender and opengl is not working.

blender spits out :
guessing 'blender-bin' == '/usr/bin/blender-bin'
Compiled with Python version 2.5.2.
Checking for installed Python... got it!
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
intern/ghost/intern/GHOST_WindowX11.cpp:105: X11 glxChooseVisual() failed for OpenGL, verify working openGL system!
ERROR: Unable to open Blender window

that is what is spit out in terminal from blender.

what should I do to fix this?

Also firefox3 has problems with youtube videos.

I play the videos and I see the video glitch and resize the video to make it smaller and it comes back and forth with that.

when I type in a new website to get out of youtube watching the video.

The audio dosen't stop playing. This sometimes causes my system to freeze.

Any ideas on how I should fix this?
