If you have problems running or with graphics on Linux, please try and use Mesa 9.0+ and latest video drivers. Gma500 and other old integrated or older chipsets will not work with eufloria hd.

If you still have problems running the game on Linux, please post in this thread. Include the following information:

  • document your distribution version and architecture
  • output of glxinfo  (specifically the direct rendering line and any opengl line)
Code: [Select]
glxinfo | grep -e direct\ rendering -e OpenGL

    Hi sillytuna,
    the game runs fine on Ubuntu 12.10 64bit but I made the mistake to choose an unsupported resolution in fullscreenmode. Whenever I run the game the display turns black and says "Unsupported Resolution". Is there a way to reset the resolution manually by editing a config file?

    Regards
    Wendigo

    EDIT:
    I found it out myself, for everybody interested:

    Rename the OptionsData.bin on your home drive and restart the game
    /home/[username]/.local/share/EufloriaHD/OptionsData.bin -> /home/[username]/.local/share/EufloriaHD/OptionsData_bak.bin

    Hi, please post details on what occurs and follow the instructions at the top of this thread.

    I'm told by our Linux expert that most problems are down to video drivers.

    The game will run, but most of the moving objects won't render

    I run Slackware 13.37 on an atom z520
    linux kernel 3.6.7 with framebuffer graphics driver psbgfx

    $ glxinfo | grep -e direct\ rendering -e OpenGL
    direct rendering: Yes
    OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project
    OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
    OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.9.2
    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20
    OpenGL extensions:

    Hi eagle. Problems with rendering will be your graphics drivers or graphics cards. Also, old chipsets such as gma500, present on some generally older netbooks and low end laptops will not work.

    Edit: I'm informed that this is an old chipset, probably gma500, and a software renderer. This will almost certainly not be compatible with Eufloria. I'm very sorry; blame intel for not supporting OpenGL properly on that chipset!

    I use xubuntu 11.10 now with intel emgd driver.
    The game works fine now.

    $ glxinfo | grep -e direct\ rendering -e OpenGL
    direct rendering: Yes
    OpenGL vendor string: Intel Corporation
    OpenGL renderer string: EMGD on PowerVR SGX535
    OpenGL version string: 2.1
    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20
    OpenGL extensions:

    Great!

    I guess moving off the software rasterizer helped :)

    I can only repeat what our Linux expert has said in the past - it'll be a driver issue. I'll pass your info on so he is aware or to see if he has any ideas.

    Sephiroth, from our Mr Linux:

    If he can't change resolutions etc..  that probably means his XrandR is messed up.  SDL simply asks the X sserver via XrandR, xinerama, or "old school" xvidmode what resolutions are available, and if it returns no valid resolutions that may hinder the ability to switch resolutions, etc..

    Now, currently the game does output text to the console when it cannot change resolution.. (there are fprintf statements in there)..  So if the user can run Eufloria from an xterm and capture that output, that would be helpful..  Also if they can provide the output of the xrandr command.
