    Enabling Accelerated 3D Graphics


    How do I enable accelerated 3D graphics? I looked all over the Control Center in whatever might control the monitor, display settings, etc., but I canít find any settings for this. I suppose I might have to install something from the Software Manager, but I tried 3d graphics and nothing came up. I donít really know what I should be looking for to install.

    Am I missing something or is there a recommended package to install?

    Update: I received this message from VMware:
    Linux Mint as a host or guest OS is unsupported as per our compatibility guide
    VMware comes bundled with Mint’s Software Manager. I guess Mint thinks more highly of VMware than VMware thinks of Mint.
    update the display drivers on your Linux host to ensure they are capable enough to extend Accelerated 3D to guest
    So even if Mint has accelerated 3D, if it cannot extend it to the guest, the guest cannot use it.

    Is there a way to do this?
