Thread: No openGL with Nvidia proprietary driver (current/310.xx)

    Default No openGL with Nvidia proprietary driver (current/310.xx)

    Hi all,

    I'm having a strange issue regarding openGL and the current nvidia driver under 12.3. I found this after trying to enable some effects, and was presented with an error that certain effects couldn't be enabled because they require openGL. I've not had this issue while using the same driver in other distros. Also, there are no obvious issues when I browse through the nvidia x server settings. In there, openGL appears to be enabled and I am able to make changes to the settings. I saw in an old post that someone with a similar issue solved it by adding themselves to the 'video' group, but that didn't help in my case and in fact made things a little worse (now task bar mouse-over previews are broken.) Anyway, any ideas?

    I guess I didn't poke around enough. The driver wasn't the issue, it was the effects settings. Desktop effects -> advanced -> composting type was set as xrender by default. I changed to openGL and effects worked fine.

    Can you try something...
