WARNING: Direct Rendering is NOT enabled

When I run “glxgears” in the terminal.

It says:“WARNING: Direct Rendering is NOT enabled”.

What does this mean ?

The benchmark is quite low. only 50 FPS.

How to solve this problem?

I’ve install openchrome driver for my video card.


it means you don’t have hardware acceleration and that’s why you get such a low FPS count. No idea on chrome drivers, they’re ****, but it’s possible you may need to enable/tweak/etc something
