glxinfo - display info about a GLX extension and OpenGL renderer. SYNOPSIS
glxinfo [-t] [-v] [-b] [-display displayname] DESCRIPTION
glxinfo lists information about the GLX extension, OpenGL capable visuals, and the OpenGL renderer on an X server. The GLX and renderer info includes the version and extension attributes. The visual info lists the GLX visual attributes available for each OpenGL capable vis- ual (e.g. whether the visual is double buffered, the component sizes, Z-buffering depth, etc). Command line options include: -t By default the visual info is presented in a concise 80 character wide tabular format. The -t option directs glxinfo to produce a wider, more readable tabular format. -v Directs glxinfo to generate a verbose format output style for the visual list similar to the info of xdpyinfo. -b Print the ID of the "best" visual on screen 0. -l Print interesting OpenGL limits. -i Use indirect rendering connection only. -display displayname Specify the display to query.
