libGL error:


Hello,

is there anyone who can explain me this error and tell me a way to overcome this problem? Please is there anyone who can give me a solution? OS is Ubuntu 18.04

Code:
linux:~$ lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Caicos [Radeon HD 6450/7450/8450 / R5 230 OEM]
linux:~$ glxinfo | grep 'OpenGL version string'
libGL error: unable to load driver: r600_dri.so
libGL error: driver pointer missing
libGL error: failed to load driver: r600
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 17.0.0-rc3
Regards

you need to [re]install the package libgl1-mesa-dri. But I don't really know why is it missing.

Hello,

thank you for your reply. I reinstalled the package, but nothing changed. In the folder /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ I can see the r600_dri.so driver. So must I link it to anywhere? And where please? Where is the folder with the OpenGL?

Thanks

I don't think you need to link it. I would rather try to reinstall the whole amd driver stuff.
But first would be nice to know what is installed at all.

Thank you for your answer.
I tried it to reinstall but without success.
With which command can I send you the whole installed amd stuff?
What I did is, that I took a photo about the libgl1-mesa-dri in the synaptic. See below please.
Regards
