openGL Issues X11/Enlightenment


I know running anything as root is bad but I did it simply to compare.

When I load startx w/ Enlightenment (even Gnome prior to) it loads 3D and openGL fine.. When I use any other user it says can not load or detect opengl hardware.

I will see if I can get the error message but until then is this something common?

OpenGL works fine when Root is loading Enlightenment/X-Windows(which I cearly do not want to use) but when I load it with my user I get this;

Compositor Warning;
Your Display driver does not support OpenGL, or no OpenGL engines were compiled or installed for Evas or Ecore-Evas. Falling back to software engine.

It still loads, though.

What groups do you belong to? I belong to the following and had OpenGL working fine on Enlightenment (although, the environment was too foreign and I couldn't find the way to customize it to my liking, so I switched back to KDE).

Code:
users lp floppy audio video cdrom plugdev power netdev scanner vboxusers

You probably missed the step when you created your user to add it to the other groups (unless you just ran useradd instead of the script adduser -- see this). Try:

Code:
usermod -a -G lp,floppy,audio,video,cdrom,plugdev,power,netdev,scanner $USERNAME
Replace $USERNAME with your Slackware login.
