Problem when try to run OpenGL on Ubuntu 18.04.3

Hello there.

I got the following error message with OpenGL on Ubuntu 18.04.3:

X Error of failed request: GLXBadFBConfig
Major opcode of failed request: 154 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 34 ()
Serial number of failed request: 41
Current serial number in output stream: 40

My guess is that there is a problem with the graphics card/OpenGL version.
Has anyone an idea what the specific problem could be?

Thanks in advance!

what do you do to produce the error-output?


I run the project in clion. All seems to work fine until this error message comes.


That gives two possibillities: either the error is rooted in the compilation or appearing when you execute the compiled .exe

Don’t you think that there is a conflict with the graphics card and the openGL version which I am using?

My post was intented to be a question.
I found a link for you that may be relevant.

Which project ?

Also if you could post your FBConfig, maybe someone would be able to give you some hints.
