glxinfo(1) General Commands Manual glxinfo(1)NAME
glxinfo - show information about the GLX implementation
The glxinfo program shows information about the OpenGL and GLX implementations running on a given X display.
The information includes details about the server- and client-side GLX implementation, the OpenGL and GLU implementations as well as a list
of available GLX visuals.
OPTIONS -v Print visuals info in verbose form.
-t Print verbose table.
Specify the X display to interrogate.
-h Print usage information.
-i Force an indirect rendering context.
-b Find the "best" visual and print its number.
-l Print interesting OpenGL limits.

visualinfo -- displays GL extension and visual info
visualinfo [-display display] [-visual id]
This manual page documents briefly the visualinfo command.
visualinfo is a small utility that displays all available visuals, aka. pixelformats, in an OpenGL system along with renderer version
information. It shows a table of all the visuals that support OpenGL along with their capabilities. The format of the table is similar to
that of glxinfo on Unix systems:
visual ~= pixel format descriptor
id = visual id (integer from 1 - max visuals)
tp = type (wn: window, pb: pbuffer, wp: window & pbuffer, bm: bitmap)
ac = acceleration (ge: generic, fu: full, no: none)
fm = format (i: integer, f: float, c: color index)
db = double buffer (y = yes)
dw = swap method (x: exchange, c: copy, u: undefined)
st = stereo (y = yes)
sz = total # bits
r = # bits of red
g = # bits of green
b = # bits of blue
a = # bits of alpha
axbf = # aux buffers
dpth = # bits of depth
stcl = # bits of stencil
A summary of options is included below.
Print help and exit.
Allows specifying an X display.
Allows specifying a specific X visual.
