Software :: Finding A Remote Desktop Application That Will Work With OpenGL

Nov 22, 2010

I need to be able to open an openGL based piece of software remotely (like Maya or 3D Studio Max, for example). The server will be a linux machine (CentOS, currently, fwiw), but the client should be able to run on at least Linux and Windows. This will happen over the internet as opposed to over a LAN.

So far, I've tried

- "NoMachine NX" which is pretty good, but it seems to have some issues with GL. Maybe this can be fixed in xorg on the server (disabling overlays or something like that)? not sure.

- HP Remote Graphics Software (RGS) which works fairly well with Cent & Windows, though is sometimes a little slow. It also doesn't seem to be happy on Ubuntu, which is a pretty big bummer. It's also a bummer that it's somewhat expensive. That said, it's still the front-runner.

- VNC which was very slow.

It's imperative that it can transmit very complex rendered OpenGL properly. It's ok if it's slow to tumble/refresh, but it should be correct.

Ubuntu Networking :: Finding A Useable Remote Desktop That Works Like Microsofts's RDP?

Sep 12, 2010

I'm looking for a useable remote desktop solution that works like Microsoft's RDP.The included "remote desktop" vnc server in Ubuntu doesn't work because every time I want to log in remotely, I have to first go sit down in front of the machine running ubuntu, log in, disable desktop effects, then manually adjust the desktop resolution to fit the target guest machine. I can't really do that if I'm on my laptop at the airport.

Some things I have tried:NoMachine NX does not work because once I've launched applications remotely on my laptop there's no way to get them back once I'm at the machine locally. Also, there's a sound feature, but it doesn't work. Remote X11 doesn't work for the same reasons.

1. I need to be able to launch an application remotely, then when I get home, go sit at the machine locally and use that application there without having to re-launch it.

2. I need to be able to hear the sound playing on the remote computer.

3. I need it to work with desktop effects enabled.

Essentially, I want it to "just work" the way Windows' Remote Desktop works.

Ubuntu :: Finding OpenGL For A 64 Bit Installation?

Jun 9, 2010

I'm trying to find a 64 bit version of OpenGL for Linux. I tried driver from Nvidia, but it turned out that it required a specific graphics card, (which either I don't have, or VMware has trouble noticing that I do. I have a laptop with some Nvidia, Geforce with Cuda card.

In any case, I just need to find 64bit OpenGL for Ubuntu 10.04. I keep finding 32 bit versions, or other versions that don't apply to me.

I'm still kind of new and it's possible that I haven't been looking the most effective places. I tried google and sourceforge, but I couldn't quite find it.

If anyone knows where I can get it, or knows of a better place to look, I would be very grateful.

P.S. I also tried the package manager and the OpenGL site.

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Desktop Viewer Doesn't Work

Sep 18, 2010

I have Lynx, trying to connect to a tightvnc server on a Win7 box on my LAN.

Server IP:

The remote desktop window just goes black and pops up a dialog saying connection closed every time.However VNC works fine as I installed xtightvncviewer as an alternative and that connects, and I can view the Win7 desktop and control it and do everything you would expect.

I've also tried connecting using Android VNC viewer from my phone on my LAN and that also works fine so it appears to be an issue with Remote Desktop Viewer.Incidentally using R.D.V. on Intrepid into a tightvnc server on my old XP box worked fine.

Ubuntu :: Viewing Desktop Using Remote Client (Windows TightVNC) Doesn't Work

Apr 30, 2010

When either of the proprietary Nvidia drivers are enabled, viewing the desktop using a remote client (Windows TightVNC) does not work. The initial remote screen display is ok, but no updates to the remote display occur. Reverting back to the non-proprietary driver solves the problem. I have also tried using a 10.04 Live CD and used Remote Desktop Viewer on the client machine, and it behaves the same way.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Work Remote Desktop Via The Terminal Server Client On Wired Box Running 10.10?

Dec 3, 2010

I am at a loss. I can not access my work remote desktop via the terminal server client on my wired box running Ubuntu 10.10. My wireless laptop is able to connect right away once I established the VPN connection. The VPN connection is established on both boxes with no problems.

When I tried the Terminal Server Client on my wired boxed, it says it can not establish a connection. Yet my wireless box gets connected immediately!

I check the /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf and the /etc/resolv.conf to see if there were any differences, but they are essentially the same. When I have the vpnc connection, they both recognize it and I am able to ping the IP address shown when I do a "ifconfig" on the terminal.

What can be the problem? Anything I need to configure on a wired computer versus a wireless one? What else can I check?

OpenSUSE :: KDE Desktop Effects Cannot Revert To OpenGL

Jan 27, 2011

Last night I was playing around with Desktop Effects and set the composting engine to Xrender, it was openGL. And things started to slow down tremendously. There is now lag on Alt+F1, lag when mousing over hidden taskbar, lag when moving windows, etc. I was trying to get rid of a trail of images when moving windows around. I created more problems. Things got even better when I tried to change back to openGL:

"Failed to activate desktop effects using the given configuration options. Setting will be reverted back to previous values. Check your X configuration. You may also consider changing advancde options, especially changing the composting type." The same thing happens when I click on "Default", the default options disable desktop effects.

Ubuntu :: OpenGL Apps Don't Work?

May 23, 2010

Whenever I try to start an OpenGL app in the terminal, I get a message to the point of "could not create GL context." It was working until around the last update. I know it's not a hardware problem because my windows partition works as well as ever.

I'm using Hardy Heron with the closed Nvidia driver with a Geforce 9800gt
'glxinfo | grep OpenGL' gives

Ubuntu Installation :: Get The OpenGL SDK To Work On Computer?

Jan 11, 2011

EDIT: I got it to work. It turns out that mesa-common-dev works with my nVidia drivers.

I'm new here, and to Linux/Ubuntu in general, so I apologize if this is in the wrong section or something. Anyways, I'm trying to get the OpenGL SDK to work on my computer. I've already gotten gcc/++ and whatnot, and I'm fairly sure I've upgraded my graphics drivers to the most current possible. A quick check reveals that my graphics card is nVidia:


01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV41.8[GeForce Go 6800] (rev a2)So I assume that I need to get the nVidia OpenGL packages:


sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-dev

However, that nets me this error:


Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done

Package nvidia-glx-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source

E: Package 'nvidia-glx-dev' has no installation candidate

My only other thought is to apt-get mesa-common-dev, but I don't know if that will work with nVidia. (And this is a rather old computer, so the problem might just be one of obsoleteness, but it doesn't seem like so, from the error I'm getting).

Fedora :: Wine/opengl/32 To 64 Bit - Cannot Load OpenGL When Try To Start WoW

Oct 19, 2009

I just upgraded from FC8 (32-bit) to FC11 (64-bit). In doing so, I backed up my entire World of Warcraft folder so I could try to avoid having to download and install it all over again. However, I've now reinstalled wine (64-bit now), and the nvidia drivers from the rpmfusion repos (also 64-bit), and when I try to start WoW, it says it cannot load OpenGL. I'm wondering if anyone knows what's up, and if there's a solution that doesn't involve reinstalling WoW.

SUSE / Novell :: OpenGL Doesn't Work On X-Win32 With SLES11

Jul 6, 2010

I didn't have any luck finding the solution for not getting opengl working on a SLES11 server with a remote X-Win32 client. As a reference I've used the tool "glxgears" for testing.We have two servers. One (server A) with SLES10 and the other (server B) with SLES11. We use X-Win32 (ver. 9.x) as an X-server on a Microsoft Windows client machine. Both servers are connected to with ssh with X11 forwarding enabled (Xclock works fine on both).Starting glxgears from server A works fine; Three nice gears are displayed.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Optimus Support Will OpenGL Still Work With Intel Gfx?

Mar 9, 2011

My understanding is that there is no Optimus support for Linux at this time.Will a default CentOS installation work fine with just the integrated other words, will Optimus and the discrete graphics be ignored? Will OpenGL still work correctly with the Intel integrated graphics?I am considering an i5-based laptop with Optimus support, where I might go with a dual-boot configuration.

Ubuntu :: Remote Desktop Login To Gdm After Remote Restart

Feb 6, 2011

I maintain plain vanilla Ubuntu 10.04 systems for several friends. Each machine has only one user, the owner. I use Remote Desktop to instruct and to perform maintenance. Here's my problem:After updating the system, if the kernel has changed, a restart is needed. If I do a restart, I then have to phone the owner to insert his login credentials in the gdm login screen, before I can do anything else via Remote Desktop on that machine.There ought to be a simple way I can avoid the phone call and login myself.

I'd strongly prefer not to use any software that is not included in a plain vanilla Ubuntu 10.04 installation. And I don't want to weaken system security beyond what it is now.Is there a solution? Or, what is the simplest solution?

Debian Hardware :: Can't Get OpenGL To Work On Radeon Free Drivers (Jessie)

Apr 1, 2014

I'm using Debian Jessie. All the firmware packages are properly installed, and so are the radeon free driver packages.

However, Gallium falls back to llvmpipe, which from what I understand is a software rasterizer and not actually hardware rendering.

Everything works fine except some specific things like KDE's cube animation, which says it can't be enabled because it requires OpenGL.

How do I get Debian to run Gallium properly?

I attached some relevant info...

glxinfo | grep -i opengl

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Finding A Application To Play Dvd's?

Aug 3, 2011

I have all multimedia packages installed as the instructions of opensuse site (ffmpeg, libdvdcss, ...) and plus some others not mentioned there (gstreamer, libav ...).Recently I was watching a dvd in kaffeine but several times the video and audio had small stops of about one or half second. It even came to the point of skipping a bit of the video. I tried vlc and the same thing happenned up to a point where the video froze at all. Also in other dvd's, when I tried to watch the content of a menu option vlc skipped the first few second of that scene before playing it. I tried smplayer and the exhibition of video was perfect except by the fact that it don't recognize dvd menus and subtitles. All mplayer gui's don't recognize them.So what player available for opensuse is able to recognize menus, subtitles and at the same time play dvd movies without other problems?

Ubuntu :: Programmatically Finding Out The Application Font

Jan 10, 2011

I am writing an Air application and I would like to have the app use the font indicated in Appearance Preferences.

A similar problem to this one :


I do not have Gtk::Settings and I have looked in ~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/ but I do not have an interface folder and none of the others I opened have any font details.

I have tried simply not setting a font within my application but it is using a font not specified in the Appearance Preferences at all. It looks like Times.

Ideally I would like to be able to get this information from Ubuntu using a native process :


get the font name of the Application font or would I have to write a script and call that from inside Air?

I have a default installation of Ubuntu 10.4 with Unity running on top of Gnome. (I think this is correct. I certainly can get Nautilus running quite easily and as I mentioned earlier I have ~/.gconf/desktop/gnome/ folders).

The brief is to get the application working on the default installation so I cannot install anything but the target machine I am using has got 'gconftool'.
