Cannot display the 3D (GL) screen-seavers in xscreensaver 5.34

Post by mingle » Sat Apr 01, 2017 4:42 am

Hi Guys,

Running LM 18.1 xfce 64-bit on a Dell Optiplex 860 with Intel Q45 GFX.

In xscreensaver, it appears that none of the screen-savers that use 3D rendering work on my system. They are visible in the small preview window in xscreensaver, but when I preview (full-screen) I just get a blank screen.

When I run an identical LM18.1 setup in VirtualBox on the same hardware, it works fine - very annoying...

Any suggestion on what I can check on my 'real' Linux Mint install to try and resolve it?

Cheers,

Mike.
