    HOWTO: Install OpenGL/Graphic card Benchmark utility - SVN

    Doesn't work in Ubuntu Breezy 5.10 and below
    Tested: 6.04 x86, 6.10 x86, 7.04 x86 | 7.10 64-bit, 8.04 64-bit and 8.10 64-bit


    NB: Nvidia 9xxx driver support GL_shadow.

    A couple a months ago I found this handy little tool which are build for benchmarking your Graphic card. The name of the tool is GLobs.
    Before you start, make sure you have universe enable in your sourcelist. There's plenty of threads and howtos throughout the forum to do so.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Before Installation:

    Make sure that your sourcelist is properly set up and your 3D driver for your graphic card is working.
    Next step is getting you the right compiling tools and depended libs to compile and making Globs working:

    7.04 and previous releases:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install build-essential subversion scons
    sudo apt-get install libsdl-image1.2-dev libsqlite0-dev libsqlite3-0 libsqlite3-dev python-gnome2-dev python-gobject-dev python-gtk2-dev python2.4-opengl x11proto-gl-dev libgtk2.0-dev python2.4-pysqlite2 freeglut3-dev
    7.10, 8.04 and 8.10:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install build-essential subversion scons
    sudo apt-get install libsdl-image1.2-dev libsqlite0-dev libsqlite3-0 libsqlite3-dev python-gnome2-dev python-gobject-dev python-gtk2-dev python-opengl x11proto-gl-dev libgtk2.0-dev python2.4-pysqlite2 freeglut3-dev


    Installation:

    Now to the compiling and installing;

    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop
    svn co https://globs.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/globs/globs/trunk globs
    svn co https://globs.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/globs/benchmarks/trunk globs/src/benchmarks
    cd globs
    scons
    sudo scons install prefix=/usr
    sudo python patchdir.py prefix=/usr
    sudo python setup.py install --prefix=/usr

    Last step is making an application launcher;

    Code:
    sudo rm -f /usr/share/applications/globs.desktop
    sudo nano /usr/share/applications/globs.desktop

    add the following text:

    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=GL O.B.S.
    Comment=OpenGL Benchmark Utility
    Exec=globs %F
    Icon=/usr/share/globs/pixmaps/globs.png
    Terminal=false
    Type=Application
    Categories=Application;System;



    Save and exit.
    [ctrl]+[o] | [ctrl]+[x]

    You can now start GLobs in the Application tab ---> System Tools or type globs in the terminal.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    1) Download GLobs to your Desktop. You can download it here: http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...roup_id=161613

    2) Next step is getting you the right compiling tools and depended libs to compile and making Globs working:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential libsqlite0-dev libsqlite3-0 libsqlite3-dev python-gnome2-dev python-gobject-dev python-gtk2-dev python2.4-opengl scons x11proto-gl-dev libgtk2.0-dev freeglut3-dev
    3) Now to the compiling and installing:

    Code:
    cd Desktop
    tar zxvf globs-0.1.tar.gz
    cd globs-0.1
    scons
    sudo scons install prefix=/usr
    sudo python patchdir.py prefix=/usr
    sudo python setup.py install --prefix=/usr
    4) Last step is making an application launcher:

    Code:
    sudo rm -f /usr/share/applications/globs.desktop
    sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/globs.desktop
    add:



    Save an exit.
    You can now start GLobs in the Application tab ---> System Tools
    or type globs in the terminal.


    This howto is also tested on Dapper.

    Re: HOWTO: Install OpenGL/Graphic card Benchmark utility (GL o.b.s.)

    Followed all the recommendations/directions here and at the main GL OBS site - still, I got compile errors when I ran scons.

    My post/inquiry/plea for help is here GL OBS on Ubuntu PPC?.

    Anyhelp would be appreciated. You can pm me.

    thanks,

    Sorry don't know. It might be PPC related somehow.
    But you might take contact with the developer of Globs to straighten out the errors.

    Re: HOWTO: Install OpenGL/Graphic card Benchmark utility (GL o.b.s.)

    When I try to get the globs installed, I get this message:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    E: Couldn't find package python-gobject-dev

    I get that after I input this:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential python-gnome2-dev python-gtk2-dev python-gobject-dev libwnck-dev libxres-dev x11proto-resource-dev libgnome-desktop-dev libstartup-notification0-dev automake1.8 python-gobject

    How do I get python-gobject-dev installed?
    Hoping to move away from Windows completely.

    Re: HOWTO: Install OpenGL/Graphic card Benchmark utility (GL o.b.s.)

    It might be called something else on breezy, because I've manage to install it on breezy but I've moved to dapper and wrote the howto through there. A mistake of mine.

    But you could try and see if the dapper version of the file works or you ran into dependency problems: http://packages.ubuntulinux.org/cgi-...=all&type=main
