I have an NVIDIA NVS 5200, and my machine is running Ubuntu 15.10. I am trying to access a software that is currently installed on a server. In order to get the window of the software, I am using the "-X" for the ssh connection. The problem is, when I try to launch it, I get this:
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast X Error of failed request: GLXBadContext Major opcode of failed request: 154 (GLX) Minor opcode of failed request: 6 (X_GLXIsDirect) Serial number of failed request: 2501 Current serial number in output stream: 2500
I have tried to completely uninstall Nvidia drivers, and reinstall them, testing different versions, but it did not fix the problem. I have tried a lot of different tutorials and the only thing I managed to do is to make unity crash. How should I proceed?
Edit: I will list the different solutions I have come across, and that did not work for me so far:
- Fully uninstall Nvidia drivers
- Install different versions of the driver. Only version 340.96 worked. Installing an other one would make it impossible for me to access my desktop (even after reinstalling desktop-ubuntu and unity)
- this one, did not work for me
I'll edit the list as we go.
