Ubuntu :: Error "Could Not Find A Compatible Opengl Display Resolution. Please Check Your Driver Configuration. (Error: Couldn't Find A Matching GLX Visual)"
Jul 22, 2011
I am having issues with 3d I am trying to start up a game called auteria but it displays this error "Could not find a compatible opengl display resolution. Please check your driver configuration. (Error: Couldn't find a matching GLX visual)" I am on ubuntu 10.10 could anybody give me a solution on how to fix this issue?
When I try to play some OpenGL games, I get this error.How can I fix this? My graphics card is Nvidia, and I use the nvidia-current driver.Here's what it says under OpenGL/GLX Information. I don't know if this is the info you need, but oh well.
I'm having an issue and I'm trying to figure out if the proprietary driver from ATI is actually getting installed correctly or if I'm on the open source driver still. ...and whether or not there's an advantage to one over the other...
I'm on a Sager NP3790 with an ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 graphics card. I've got a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 and the basic 2d functions all seem fine, but any games I try to run with OpenGL simplt fail and "glxinfo" yields:
I have downloaded the latest legacy driver from ATI (ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run) and I've not had any success running that directly. It appears to not knowingly support anything newer than Ubuntu 9.04. I have tried forcing that driver to build itself targeting 9.04 and I've tried installing the .deb packages that it produces, but with no luck there either.
If I recall this laptop's former lives, it has in the past run Eternal Lands without issue back when it was Ubuntu 8.x, but somewhere between a client update from them, some update from ATI or Ubuntu I seem to have lost my OpenGL capabilities.
using nvidia_173 driver from repository with nvidia geforce fx5500 sping returns this: Could not set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual would installing nvidia-glx-173 package be the solution? just realized i had the nvidia_173 driver activiated, but not in use. ran "sudo nvidia-xconfig" boots in tty1, so i navigated to the X11 directory and deleted xorg.conf, boots to gnome now
how do i keep it from going to tty1? i know there are threads on this here and there, but most leave you with the default driver, and i want to keep nvidia_173
I have a Slackware 13.1/64-current system running the 184.108.40.206 kernel that I have installed the most recent nvidia drivers for (as of yesterday or day before) 260.19.12. If I boot up into run level 4 after running nvidia-xconfig in a console and run glxinfo as root I get:
bash-4.1# glxinfo name of display: :0.0 Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig
If I edit /etc/profile or /home/username/.bash_profile and add the following:
I have set both X=0 and X=1 as reported by [URL] I get the screen of information except it says
direct rendering: No (LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT set)
my lspci -v for the graphics card looks like this:
05:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G86 [GeForce 8500 GT] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) Subsystem: XFX Pine Group Inc. Device 2353 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16
I am sure I missing something from my xorg.conf but at this point I am not sure what I have been searching on this for days to no avail. From the log the only thing that looks like is a problem is it doesn't load the keyboard and mouse but it gets loaded later on in the file.
I'm trying to mount a Windows Server share from Centos 5.5 (kernel 2.6.18-194.26.1.el5). I've tried two approaches neither of which work.
1). Using Places->Connect To Server. This approach works fine on Ubuntu but not at all for Centos. Using the 'Windows Share' Service type, it allows me to see the remote directory - I can see all of the directories on the server. But as soon as I click one, I get an error 'Couldn't find "smb://blah/blah". Please check the spelling and try again. As I say, this worked fine on ubuntu. Tried loads of options but with no luck. I saw something on the web about leading slashes being a problem.
2). Using Mount . Tried to use mount to mount as a cifs filesystem, as documented on a number of web pages:
mount -t cifs //server/dir -o username=username,password=password /mnt/tmp
This completely hangs the machine.I means completely, no mouse, no nothing. I've seen some references to unstable cifs on the web but I believe that this kernel has the fix for this.
i just upgraded to 10.10 thru update manager, had problems upgrading, had to disable Nvidia - nouveau to upgrade and everything went well for 5 days but then i disabled backports in software sources then i changed visual affect from normal to extra and turned computer off. NOW i cant use ubuntu it just freezes on the purple ubuntu screen prior to login.have tried using safe mode and repair broken packages, which did a 21mb update but still nothing but freeze. i get this message in safe mode
Distro: Ubuntu 11.04-beta1 'natty' Problem: 'your hardware does not support Unity; you will be using Ubuntu Classic.' Installed: nvidia-common 0.2.28, nvidia-current 270.30-0ubuntu3, nvidia-settings 270.29-0ubuntu1, linux-image-generic-pae 220.127.116.11.21, linux-headers-generic-pae 18.104.22.168.22
After reading a few other threads on the matter, I suspect the problem is with the 'nvidia-current' package more than the libgl1-mesa-glx or unity packages. ... though it does seem odd that Unity doesn't have a non-OpenGL verison.
If I find a solution, I'll come back. I hope the answer isn't "ditch nvidia-current for the binary install script from nVidia direct." If someone found this thread in a search, the nVidia driver install scripts can be found at [URL]

I successfully upgraded this box from Fedora 6 => Fedora 9 and I guess I got too confident when this worked without a hitch and went straight from Fedora 9 => Fedora 12. Everything works up until the very end of the upgrade process when I get this error.
Code: (process:2227): GLib-WARNING **: GError set over the top of a previous GError or uninitialized memory. This indicates a bug in someone's code. You must ensure an error is NULL before it's set. The overwriting error message was: Parsing primary.xml error: Couldn't find end of Start Tag rpm:entry line 15303

Whenever I run glxgears or glxinfo from an ssh or vnc session, I get "Error: couldn't get an RGB, double-buffered visual". I can run glx stuff fine on the console under KDE, but that's not practical for the intended users. I've tried updating drivers (it's a Dell R610 w/ Matrox G200ew videa), firmware, rpms, etc., even running ssh with -X or -Y, but to no avail.
I was trying to get a game to work (scorched 3d) but I kept getting a resolution error. So I did some looking around and found that I had to do something with xorg.conf in /usr/bin/x11 (if I remember). Well I didn't have that file, so I installed a program that had it (and for the life of me, I don't remember what it was). Long story short, I tried to run a different game (foobillard) and it wouldnt run. So I ran from terminal and got an error saying that x11 is not configured with opengl. Now I am mad cuz that was my favorite game. Is there a way to reset x11 and opengl without losing everything?

I've just finished installing lucid and started setting up my tablet and all went well until I tried to install the fpit driver. I tried installing it from synaptic but it says it has to remove ubuntu-desktop, xorg, xserver-core -- some very important things and then says "xserver-xorg-input-fpit: Depends: xserver-xorg-core but it is not going to be installed." I tried downloading the deb and extracting the driver manually but Xorg complains with:
(II) LoadModule: "fpit" (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/fpit_drv.so (II) Module fpit: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
I've got a setup where I need to use 'find' to find 0 or more files in a certain directory, however, 'find' always produces an error when there are no files that match a certain check. Is it possible to run 'find' while having it omit errors when no files match the pattern?

We make everyday a DB Mysql backup on Linux redhat Enterprise. We are using a bash shell script (and putting it in the crontab) to execute it automatically everyday. We added a line to this script telling, once the backup has completed, to find old backup files (stored on hard disk after each backup) older than x days to remove them. We use the find command (search for file type) with the mtime option and in combination with rm command. Everything runs ok but we also want to add some new code to the same line: If find command cannot find anything or fails, for example if it cannot delete file or fails, send the error message (standard error output) to an error file (like error000001 and increasing) and mail the errorxxxx file to an email address for example to firstname.lastname@example.org. What would be the code for this issue to add it to our find command in the same bash shell script??
