Question

I'm almost able to access an X client from my droplet, but it is failing at the last minute

My error is: process[rviz-4]: started with pid [11661] libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found

And checking the video drivers shows this: pitosalas@pitosalas1:~$ sudo ldconfig -p | grep -i gl.so [sudo] password for pitosalas: libwayland-egl.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libwayland-egl.so.1 libwayland-egl.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libwayland-egl.so libfltk_gl.so.1.3 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfltk_gl.so.1.3 libfltk_gl.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfltk_gl.so libQt5OpenGL.so.5 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5OpenGL.so.5 libQt5OpenGL.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5OpenGL.so libQtOpenGL.so.4 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQtOpenGL.so.4 libQtOpenGL.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQtOpenGL.so libGL.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1 libGL.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libGL.so libGL.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so libEGL.so.1 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa-egl/libEGL.so.1 libEGL.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libEGL.so libEGL.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa-egl/libEGL.so

I am running Ubuntu 16.04. Any clue?

Hey friend,

I believe that rviz will not run in such a way. Having a full desktop environment and connecting over VNC might work, but do keep in mind these droplets do not have a GPU and would therefore be likely to perform quite poorly with it. There is some discussion on the topic here:
