Unable to create a suitable config

Hi Sondes

Can you confirm that your graphics drivers are up to date? For nvidia cards we recommend using the proprietary drivers (not nouveau).


I install all the additional drivers from the gui on ubuntu but the samples examples doesn’t work

also in the additional drivers gui , when I clik in any driver , it display " the driver was installed and it’s actually not in use" I don’t know if this was the problem?


what does it mean this error

PVRShell: EGL 0.0 initialized Exit message has been set to: "PVRShell: Failed to bind OpenGL ES API ". InitAPI failed!

eny idea?


Are you setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable to the location of the emulation libraries? Otherwise you may be picking up mesa’s libEGL from the system


thanks you are right :smiley:
