OPENSCAD fails to start, throwing symbol lookup error

Since a DUP on 6th of August 2021, openscad no longer starts. No error message in frontend.

On commandline there is a little more information:

openscad: symbol lookup error: /lib64/ undefined symbol: __glewXGetFBConfigAttribSGIX

Checking the referenced libraries, has been updated on 6th of August

I found one reference yesterday - though I can’t find it right now (=Murpy) - stating that this library has been changed end of July for some reason

**How to get a working openscad again?

**It’s sort of urgent, as openscad is an essential part of my workflow…


Found the change-info. In the changelog, of course.

It reads for libGLEW2_2 - OpenGL Extension Wrangler Library:

| Sa 31 Jul 2021 14:00:00 CEST
| Atri Bhattacharya <>
| - Build with EGL support now that wxWidgets does so (since version
3.1.5), otherwise wxWidgets 3.1.x widgets that make use of glew
crash (see for example, boo#1188519); add BuildRequires:
pkgconfig(egl) as well as the same Requires for devel package.

Use Leap for workflow…

Thanks, Svyatko - I finally found a temporary workaround, using wine.

From my side this can be closed
