I am trying to use OpenGL on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I installed OpenGL with the following commands:
sudo apt-get install g++ cmake sudo apt-get install freeglut3 freeglut3-dev sudo apt-get install binutils-gold
I wrote a simple example in C++ and compiled it with
g++ -lGL -lglut main.cpp -o test and then I tested it using
./test. A window opened but it was black and I didn't show anything.
So, I installed my nvidia driver using the following commands:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install nvidia-current sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings sudo reboot
And now when I try to run again the program it gives me the 2 errors:
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0". freeglut (./test): OpenGL GLX extension not supported by display ':0'
What could be the problem?
Also, here is the output of the
lspci | grep VGA command:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce GT 525M] (rev a1)
