 Use a wrapper/​proxy library provided by Mesa. The applications will use the supplied libGL.so, which in turn uses the lib interface to talk to the X server (nxagent) rather than the GLX interface. From the applications'​ perspective,​ they have GLX 1.4. Use a wrapper/​proxy library provided by Mesa.

 +
 +==== Compile ====
 +The general way to build the required library is this (see also https://​mesa3d.org/​llvmpipe.html):​
 +  * download and extract tarball from mesa3d.org. Try with the newest and go down to older versions if you have problems with the newer one
 +  * ''​cd mesa-<​the version you downloaded>''​
 +  * ''​mkdir build''​
 +  * ''​cd build''​
 +  * ''​meson -D glx=gallium-xlib -D gallium-drivers=swrast -D platforms=x11 -D dri3=false -D dri-drivers=""​ -D vulkan-drivers=""​ -D buildtype=release -D optimization=3''​
 +  * ''​ninja''​
 +
 +==== Wrappers ===
 +Now you should find a libGL.so in ''​src/​gallium/​targets/​libgl-xlib''​. This is the lib the your program need to load instead of the libGL of the system.
 +
 +Copy ''​the src/​gallium/​targets/​libgl-xlib''​ directory to a place of your preference. Create two wrapper scripts ''​~/​x2goglx''​ and ''​~/​x2goglx2''​
 +
 +''​x2goglx'':​
 +<​code>​
 +#!/bin/sh
 +LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<​your directory>/​libgl-xlib:​${LD_LIBRARY_PATH} exec "​$@"​
 +</​code>​
 +
 +''​x2goglx2'':​
 +<​code>​
 +#!/bin/sh
 +LD_PRELOAD=<​your directory>/​libgl-xlib/​libGL.so.1 exec "​$@"​
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Make them executable and test them:
 +<​code>​
 +$ chmod u+rx x2goglx*
 +$ x2goglx glxinfo
 +$ x2goglx2 glxinfo
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Watch the output of the two glxinfo calls. You should see references to your mesa version and you should also see it reporting "GLX version: 1.4", e.g. (shortened):​
 +<​code>​
 +...
 +server glx vendor string: Brian Paul
 +server glx version string: 1.4 Mesa 18.0.5
 +...
 +client glx vendor string: Brian Paul
 +client glx version string: 1.4 Mesa 18.0.5
 +...
 +GLX version: 1.4
 +...
 +OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc.
 +OpenGL renderer string: llvmpipe (LLVM 3.8, 128 bits)
 +OpenGL core profile version string: 3.3 (Core Profile) Mesa 18.0.5
 +...
 +</​code>​
 +
 +
 +Instead of creating the scripts mentioned above you can also add this to your .bashrc (or the config of your favourite shell):
 +<​code>​
 +export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<​your directory>/​libgl-xlib:​${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}
 +</​code>​
 +
 +==== Usage ===
 +Now you can use one of these created wrapper scripts to run your application:​ ''​x2goglx <your application>''​. Some apps modify ''​LD_LIBRARY_PATH''​ so the ''​x2goglx''​ could have no effect. In that case try ''​x2goglx2''​.
 +
 +If you still cannot succeed you can try to find your if your application needs some special treatment. If so, please add the solution to the end of this page or post it to the mailinglist for some to add it.
 +
 +
 +===== Versions / Platforms =====
 +The following chapters give some hints on how to compile the library on various combinations of platforms and mesa versions.
 +==== Mesa 19 and newer ====
 +Please note: the instructions below are valid for older Mesa releases. In Mesa 19 //meson// is recommended for building. Please consult https://​mesa3d.org/​llvmpipe.html for a basic compilation instruction. Since those instructions will not work out of the box (Error: "​gallium-xlib conflicts
 +with any dri driver"​) as of Mesa 19.3.2 you need to call //meson// with some further parameters like this:
 +<​code>​
 +$ meson -D glx=gallium-xlib -D gallium-drivers=swrast -D platforms=x11 -D dri3=false -D dri-drivers=""​ -D vulkan-drivers=""​ -D buildtype=release -D optimization=3
 +$ ninja
 +</​code>​
 +
 +==== Debian Buster and Mesa 19.3.2 ====
 +
 +<​code>​
 +$ (download and extract tarball from mesa3d.org)
 +$ cd mesa-19.3.2
 +$ mkdir build
 +$ cd build
 +$ meson -D glx=gallium-xlib -D gallium-drivers=swrast -D platforms=x11 -D dri3=false -D dri-drivers=""​ -D vulkan-drivers=""​ -D buildtype=release -D optimization=3
 +$ ninja
 +$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=`pwd`/​src/​gallium/​targets/​libgl-xlib/:​${LD_LIBRARY_PATH} glxinfo | grep 'GLX version:'​
 +</​code>​
 +
  
 ==== Ubuntu 14.04 ==== ==== Ubuntu 14.04 ====
Line 62: Line 147:
 ebuild "/​usr/​portage/​media-libs/​mesa/​mesa-${mesa_version}.ebuild"​ clean ebuild "/​usr/​portage/​media-libs/​mesa/​mesa-${mesa_version}.ebuild"​ clean
 </​code>​ </​code>​
 +
 +===== Applications =====
 +==== Matlab 2019b ====
 +
 +Compile like this:
 +<​code>​
 +meson -D glx=gallium-xlib -D gallium-drivers=swrast -D platforms=x11 -D dri3=false -D dri-drivers=""​ -D vulkan-drivers=""​ -D buildtype=release -D optimization=3 -Dprefix=/​usr/​local/​mesa-20.1.0/​
 +</​code>​
 +
 +To make Matlab load the new driver modify Matlab'​s lib search path:
 +cp $MATLAB_DIRECTORY/​bin/​.matlab7rc.sh ~
 +
 +Edit the file ~/​.matlab7rc.sh,​ find the glnxa* section and add ''/​usr/​local/​mesa-20.1.0/​lib/​x86_64-linux-gnu''​ to LDPATH_PREFIX
 +
 +Add to your .profile: export MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=3.0
