    Cant execute games.

    I'm pretty new on linux so I'm kinda confused...
    I installed assaultcube by using 'sudo apt-get install assaultcube'.
    The game successfully installed.
    When I execute the game this message shows up:

    Using home directory: /home/kleew/.assaultcube_v1.104
    current locale: en_US.UTF-8
    init: sdl
    init: net
    init: world
    init: video: sdl
    init: video: mode
    X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
    Major opcode of failed request: 136 (GLX)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
    Serial number of failed request: 13
    Current serial number in output stream: 13

    What's wrong and how do I fix it?

    Looks like you may not have 3D support on your video card. What video card/chipset are you using?

  3. #3
    ATI radeon 9550 128mb

    Are you using the proprietary radeon drivers or the open source fglrx drivers?
    If you don't know, try this in a terminal:
    lsmod | grep radeon && lsmod | grep fglrx
    it should tell you which one is installed.
    Also, what distribution are you using?

    lsmod | grep radeon && lsmod | grep fglrx didnt show anything so I'm guessing I dont have any drivers installed since AMD dont support linux anymore ?
    Linux Mint 12 Lisa x32.

    the mistake is mine, sorry kleew.
    try the 2 checks separately:
    1) Check for fglrx:
    lsmod | grep fglrx
    2) Check for radeon
    lsmod | grep radeon
    If you are like me, one reply a day (I'm probably on the other side of the world to you) is a painful way of solving a problem. You could try some of the following while your waiting:

    Firstly, I think it is definitely an issue with your video card drivers. In my experience the open source fglrx has never been able to reliably support 3d, so I have always replaced it with the radeon driver from ATI.

    if your checking for the driver shows you are using fglrx, try installing the ATI proprietary radeon driver. ATI still supports Linux with its proprietary drivers, your download page is here:
    (I am too new to be allowed to post links, so you will have to cut and paste the address into your browser, and add the http prefix)
    ATI usually provide reasonably easy to use installers, and there is a link to install instructions on the download page. If you have difficulty be sure to clearly post your issue with the error output and I will try to help.

    If you still have troubles after successfully installing the ATI proprietary drivers, I would suggest looking here:
