Question Alien Bob's Chromium: no HW acceleration


Hi all,
suddenly found out my chromium doesn’t have HW acceleration:
chrome://gpu/ tab says “Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable” on almost all positions.
Below on the same tab, I think the explanation:
“Problems Detected
GPU process was unable to boot: GPU access is disabled in chrome://settings.
Disabled Features: all”

Chrome doesn’t have this problem on the same system.
Having Intel internal GPU.
chrome://settings/ has "Use hardware acceleration when available" checked on.

Here is my gpu tab:
Code:

Canvas: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
Flash: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
Flash Stage3D: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable

Sounds similar to a problem I had with screen tearing a while back. Try launching chromium from the command like this
chromium --disable-gpu-sandbox

If that works then see post #6 about adding this to chromium options permanently. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ix-4175574572/

Thank you guys for replying.

Hmm, things getting better somehow - now I have almost all Graphics Features Hardware accelerated, but my gpu tab still differs from Gordie's.

What I did:
- check off "Use hardware acceleration when available" in chrome://settings/. Restart browser
- check on "Use hardware acceleration when available" again. Restart

Now my gpu tab looks following:
Code:

Compositing: Hardware accelerated
Multiple Raster Threads: Disabled

Note I have now "Rasterization: Hardware accelerated", which is not for Gordie,
but my "Multiple Raster Threads: Disabled" whereas Gordie's enabled.
I have Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 847, if that matter.


Daedra, yes I had screen tearing too - that is how I found my disabled HW acceleration. I should re-test now.
Also I'll check if --disable-gpu-sandbox gives any difference, thanks

You can create the following file in:
Code:
/etc/chromium/gpu.conf
Add the follwing:
Code:
CHROMIUM_FLAGS="$CHROMIUM_FLAGS  --disable-gpu-sandbox"
You will get a warning banner about option not compatible or something like that. You can ignore that. This, by default, will start Chromium with gpu enabled without having to pass the argument on the command line. Use whichever option is better.

If you're using Slackware 14.1, then I think it's worth mentioning that I had this problem in 14.1 but's it's gone away for me as of 14.2. At least on the box that has a desktop Nvidia card and is using proprietary drivers.

Yes I'm using Slackware 14.1, but --disable-gpu-sandbox option seems just not needed: now I seems have ALL accelerated

I tweaked chrome://flags/ a bit, and also passed --enable-native-gpu-memory-buffers option on command line.
Now my chrome://gpu/ is following:
Code:
Graphics Feature Status
Canvas: Hardware accelerated
Flash: Hardware accelerated
Flash Stage3D: Hardware accelerated
Flash Stage3D Baseline profile: Hardware accelerated
Compositing: Hardware accelerated
Multiple Raster Threads: Force enabled
Native GpuMemoryBuffers: Hardware accelerated
Rasterization: Hardware accelerated on all pages

It seems "best" configuration I could achieve. Will see how it goes.
You could try it also if you want.
Thanks all for helping!

UPDATE:
added this .conf file:
Code:
bam@darkstar:~$ cat /etc/chromium/my.conf                                                                                                                                           
CHROMIUM_FLAGS+=' --enable-native-gpu-memory-buffers'
